River Plate vs.  Vélez Sarsfield - Pre-Match - August 14, 2021

(ESPN.com) – River, with its head set on the Copa Libertadores, will host Vélez this Saturday from 6:00 p.m. for the sixth date of the Professional League.

The game will be played at the Monumental with the refereeing of Pablo Echavarría.

River (7 points) comes from two games without winning in the local tournament, after drawing on the hour against Huracán and losing to Godoy Cruz. In addition, Boca left him out of the Argentine Cup.

But the hardest defeat was the one suffered last Wednesday against Atlético Mineiro, where the Millionaire fell 1-0 at home; now he must go to Brazil to seek victory to get into the semifinals.

For this reason, Marcelo Gallardo decided to save almost all the headlines for the game against the Brazilians. The only one who will be there from the start will be Enzo Pérez, who was sent off against Mineiro and will miss the rematch.

The rest of the team will be made up of substitute players, River’s B team, such as Bologna, Vigo, Maidana, Enzo Fernández, Palavecino, Fontana and Girotti.

Meanwhile, the DT doubts between the presence of Carrascal and Paradela.

Vélez (3 points) did not win yet in the tournament and has just been eliminated from the Libertadores in the round of 16.

Mauricio Pellegrino’s team has 545 minutes without converting, but will have the returns of Thiago Almada and Francisco Ortega, who were with the Olympic Selection.

The history indicates that they played 185 games, with 96 wins for River, 50 for Velez and 49 draws.
