In the current season, the team is trying to escape the last positions of the Argentinean Championship, since it is four points more than the last one, Olimpo. The attacking players made several runs as the ball was played and made it hard for the defenders to protect their goal. After a short tussle with the defender, Temperley broke through on the left.

I believe that in this game, the Temperley maintains this pattern, focusing on defending in the first half to the final step to seek the attack and the victory.

Vélez Sársfield is a traditional Argentine football club, seven times Argentine champion, with his last conquest in the season 2012/13, now in this season of 2017/18 the team has been doing a modest campaign in the 20th place. Much is justified by its weaknesses as not being able to avoid infiltrations of the opponents in its area, not to have a good defense of counterattacks and many failures in the aerial moves.
