Where can I watch it? 


Why Bet on Estudiantes?

Estudiantes was a good team from the beginning of the season, but there were doubts that they could leap in quality to become champions of the Copa de la Liga. 

However, in the semifinals, they tied 1-1 with Boca Juniors and, in the penalty shootout, triumphed 3-1, taking advantage of the poor definition of the Xeneizes. The goal of the Pincha during regular time was scored by Colombian striker Edwuin Cetré, also with a penalty. The skillful Colombian entered in the second half and got his third goal with this shirt, two in the local tournament and one more in the Copa Libertadores. 

Estudiantes, which already won the competition two years ago, finished the group stage second in zone B with 27 points from eight wins, three draws, and three defeats. They are a very solid team in defense, and this could be said to be the flagship of coach Eduardo Domínguez, who is living one of his best periods on the bench. 

In addition, there are experienced players such as Luciano Lollo, Enzo Pérez, Santiago Ascacibar, José Sosa, Pablo Piatti, and Guido Carrillo, who are the club’s top scorer with five goals. However, Lollo will not be able to play due to an injury. 

Why Bet on Vélez?

Vélez is a club full of young blood, but it has shown a lot of gallantry to qualify for the playoffs and reach the final, leaving aside important teams. In the semifinals, the Liniers club drew 0-0 with Argentinos Juniors and won 4-2 in the penalty shootout. 

The team coached by “Cacique” Medina finished fourth in their group, with 25 points, which has a lot of merit since this team experienced an out-of-pitch problem that took out several pieces of the squad. 

In the quarterfinals, they defeated a strong team like Godoy Cruz by 2-1 and then the semifinal with Argentinos Juniors. The best scorer so far of this team is striker Brian Romero, with six goals. However, he will be the big casualty of this team after being sent off in the previous game. 

One of the big surprises of this team is forward, now midfielder, Agustín Bouzat, as well as midfielder Claudio Aquino, who has five assists. 

Final Betting Analysis: Estudiantes vs. Vélez

The last meeting between these two teams took place almost a year ago, and Estudiantes won 2-0, with goals from Gastón Benedetti. 

The numbers at have Estudiantes as the favorite. The Moneyline for them shows 2.286, Vélez has 3.16, and the draw is at 3.055. 

Both are teams with remarkable coaches, but there is one advantage Estudiantes has over Vélez: experience. That is why the Pincha will triumph and take the championship title after winning 1-0.

Go for a win for Estudiantes. If you bet $100 at 2.286, you will gain $128 for a total payout of $228.
