Torneo Final Big Match Preview: Vélez Sarsfield v Independiente

'Signing of the season' - Fernando Gago of Velez

The reigning champions have had a good start to the season, but a tough trip to Ecuador in midweek and a defeat in the Copa Libertadores will have taken their toll. Can Americo Gallego's Independiente haul themselves out of relegation trouble and take advantage of a wounded Vélez, or will Ricardo 'el Tigre' Gareca get his side to bite back? Ed Malyon explores...

"Federico Insúa and Facundo Ferreyra should be back to full fitness for the hosts too, which means further pain for Independiente, and [1.69] is just about value for a Vélez win."
