Talleres vs. Vélez Sarsfield: Who will qualify for the semifinals?

The Copa Libertadores continues to demonstrate with arguments that it is the most exciting soccer tournament in South America. And a clear example of this occurred in the quarterfinal matches where football surprises were the order of the day, as well as the logical results. One of them was the victory of Vélez by 3-2 against Talleres and both Argentine teams will meet again in Córdoba, next Wednesday, to define one of the four semifinalists of the contest.

On the one hand, Pedro Caixinha's "T" left with a bittersweet taste of his visit to Liniers after coming back from 0-2 against all sporting odds. However, he could not sustain the tie and was left empty-handed, although with a minimal adverse difference that fuels hopes for the second leg, at home.

For his part, Vélez showed the usual intensity, although some defensive shortcomings prevented him from taking a considerable advantage to travel to Córdoba with greater calm. Without a doubt, those led by Alexander Medina will have to give a plus to win the second leg.

Last Talleres matches

The arrival of Pedro Caixinha at the head of the Cordovan team had a clear objective: to be the protagonist in international competitions. And what if Talleres did it by advancing to the quarterfinals of the Copa Libertadores, despite not being one of the clear favorites of sports betting or analysts.

The truth is that Talleres had no problems winning the group stage of the Copa Libertadores, which he had to share with Flamengo, Universidad Católica and Sporting Cristal, from Peru. The Cordovan T garnered 11 points in six games played, qualifying for the round of 16 as second to Flamengo who reached 16 points.

Talleres obtained three wins, two draws and one defeat in Group H with six goals scored and five conceded, showing that defensive solidity was one of the great pillars of Caixinha's men.

In the cupbearer debut, Talleres beat Universidad Católica 1-0, lost 3-1 against Flamengo on the second day, defeated Sporting Cristal 1-0, drew 2-2 against Flamengo in Córdoba, drew goalless against Sporting Cristal, in Peru and closed their participation in Group H with a vital 1-0 away win against Universidad Católica.

It is worth remembering that Talleres is not going through a great moment in the Argentine domestic tournament, ranking 26th out of a total of 28 teams after earning only nine points in 10 games played with two wins, three draws and five losses.

Last Velez Sarsfield matches

Since the arrival of Alexander Medina at the head of the "V Azulada", the Liniers team showed signs of soccer growth in all its lines. With a predominance of young players and some top players like Lucas Pratto and Diego Godín, Vélez became a nightmare for many powerful teams.

Indeed, Liniers's team surprised in the group stage after leaving Bragantino and Nacional de Uruguay on the way against all sports betting. Vélez advanced to the round of 16 as an escort for Estudiantes de La Plata with eight points in six games played after two wins, two draws and two losses, converting 12 goals and conceding eleven.

Vélez's debut in the Copa Libertadores was adverse after a 4-1 win against Estudiantes that anticipated a dark outlook. Later, Vélez equalized 2-2 against Bragantino, lost at home 2-1 against Nacional, equalized 1-1 against the Brazilians, defeated Nacional 3-2 in Montevideo and thrashed Estudiantes 4-1 as a visitor.

Already in the round of 16, Vélez had to face River Plate, the clear favorite in sports predictions to win the key, but Vélez won 1-0 in Liniers and equalized goalless in Núñez to give one of the great blows of the Libertadores Cup.

It is worth remembering that Vélez is going through a situation similar to that of Talleres in the domestic tournament, ranking 25th with 9 points after 11 games played with only one win, six draws and four losses.

Background between both

Talleres and Vélez had never faced each other in the Copa Libertadores, so last week's clash was the inaugural duel for the cup statistics between the two.

One thing to keep in mind when it comes to Copa Libertadores predictions is that the last clash between the two in Córdoba was a 1-1 draw for the 2021 Argentine Super League.
