After Flamengo’s classification over Corinthians, the quarterfinals of the Copa Libertadores continue their course with two commitments. One is the one that takes place in the Mario Alberto Kempesa stadium that puts Talleres de Córdoba and Vélez Sarsfield face to face again. From 9:30 p.m., on Fox Sports and with arbitration by Paraguayan Eber Aquino. In the first leg, played last week in Liniers, the Fort it won 3-2 (in this edition the away goal no longer applies in the event of a tie in the series).
It was an even start and after 3 minutes Vélez arrived and converted through Lucas Prattbut the judge received the call from the VAR and annulled the goal due to a previous hand of Lucas Janson.
The T It has been showing two faces throughout this semester. Although in the Professional League he does not find regularity and navigates through the lower part of the standings, at the international level he made history by accessing this instance for the first time and now he will seek to make the legend bigger.
those of Pedro Caixhinha, who won 2-0 against Argentinos Juniors over the weekend, which allowed them to climb to 24th position, could present three changes in their formation, compared to the 11th that played the first duel. The Colombian Rafael Pérez will be in the central defense instead of Lucas Suárez, Franco Palma in midfield for the Uruguayan Christian Oliva and Rodrigo Garro will do the same in the offensive for the Ecuadorian Alan Franco.
El Fortín, in addition to having a slight advantage, has the experience that the Cordovans do not have, since they know what it is to lift this trophy (then they stayed with the Intercontinental when they beat Milan in 1994) and advanced to the semifinals three times (1980, 1994 and 2011).
Uruguayan technical director Alexander Medina will bet on the same players who won 3-2 in the first game. Those of Liniers, like their rival on duty, do not find their way in the local tournament. They come from falling 2-1 against Unión in Santa Fe and appear in the penultimate position.
The stadium, which at first was going to have a visiting bias (as a result of the incidents of the first leg in the Joseph Amalfitani the modality was changed), it will be full, since all the seats have been sold.
The winner of this confrontation will be measured in the next instance against Flamengo, who has just beaten Corinthians.
