Vélez edge past fifth-tier opposition in Copa Argentina (VIDEO)


It was far from easy but Vélez are safely into the last 32 of the Copa Argentina after a 1-0 win against Primera D side Leandro N. Alem in Formosa.

Youngster Nicolás Delgadillo struck early, finishing off a counter but it was the lower league side that had the better chances from then on.

Vélez’s league form has been woeful and a cup upset would have done little for the confidence but Omar de Felippe will know that his side were fortunate. A tie against either Aldosivi or Central Córdoba de Santiago del Estero awaits El Fortín.
