Semi-discrete in time approximations of the velocity tracking problem are studied based on a pseudo-compressibility approach. Two different methods are used for the analysis of the corresponding optimality system. The first one, the classical penalty formulation, leads to estimates of order $k + \varepsilon$, under suitable regularity assumptions. The estimate is based on previously derived results for the solution of the unsteady Navier-Stokes problem by penalty methods (see e.g. Jie Shen [26]) and the Brezzi-Rappaz-Raviart theory (see e.g. [12]). The second one, based on the artificially compressible optimality system, leads to an improved estimate of the form $k + \varepsilon k$ for the linearized system.
