In the upcoming third round of the Copa Libertadores, Sporting Cristal meets Club Atletico Huracan at the Estadio Nacional in the Lima district of Peru. Before the matchup, the two teams have consistently participated in their league games, making the upcoming meeting an interesting experience. The last time these two teams met in Buenos Aires, the result ended in a goalless draw. In the future, both sides will try to maximize their potential and make the best use of the qualification scenario.

Sporting Cristal will go into the game with mixed feelings as they drew (4-4) against Deportivo Garcilaso in the last Peruvian game. Rafael Lutiger and Alejandro Hohberg scored for Sporting Cristal. Alejandro was simply sensational, scoring the winning hat-trick in the second half. Sporting committed 12 fouls, which explains their irregular and untidy play. Therefore, it is important for Sporting Cristal to play with a disciplined strategy and to focus on not giving the opponent a chance. After being goalless in the last two games, Sporting Cristal finally managed to score goals against Deportivo Garcilaso. Sporting Cristal have scored in just 2 of their last 5 games played, so the hosts will try to come out with a positive and goal-oriented strategy. Sporting Cristal have not lost a single game in the current Peruvian league and are showing enormous confidence ahead of the home game in Peru.

Club Atletico Huracán – Boosted confidence after beating Boston River away (LDDWD)

CA Huracan suffered a 2-1 defeat to Estudiantes in Argentina’s Primera Division. Huracan most recently defeated Boston River in Montevideo, Uruguay to secure a Round 3 ticket. Since then, Huracan has not been able to claim any more victories. In the last game against Huracan, Juan Fernando Garro scored the only goal for Huracan. With the likes of Lucas Chaves, Gabriel Guidno and Guillermo Benitez in the line-up, Huracan will look to make an appearance in the forthcoming away game and make it to the final group stage of Libertadores 2023. With just 3 goals scored in their last 5 games played, Huracan averages 0.6 goals per game. If Huracan continues with the same point average, a win could be impossible.


Expected opening lineup for CA Huracan

Lucas Chaves; Guillermo Soto, Fernando Tobio, Gastón Sauro, Guillermo Benítez; Gabriel Gudiño, Santiago Hezze, Federico Fattori, Jonás Acevedo; Matias Coccaro, Nicolás Cordero

If we evaluate and revise Sporting Cristal’s last season at home, they played flawlessly. So I’m assuming that Sporting Cristal will go into the home game as favourites. Also, Huracan have only kept 2 clean sheets in their last 8 away games. Considering the shot on goal average, the total games are expected to be over 2.5 goals and both teams to score. At the end of the game the final score should be 2:1.
