Racing Club visits Alianza Lima with the aim of taking advantage of the poor present of its rival

, which has not added points in its first three games in Group F of the

2020 Copa Libertadores


The Academy

seeks to recover from the defeat suffered against Nacional de Montevideo, in the return to the competition after six months of inactivity that allowed the Uruguayans to take a light advantage from the Argentines at the top of group F of the contest.

Thus, in an empty Alejandro Villanueva stadium in Lima, since due to the coronavirus pandemic the public does not attend the matches, Racing faces this commitment from

 9:30 p.m. (Argentine time), and with live televising and direct ESPN 2

(Cablevisión channels 103 and DirecTV 623).

Sebastián Beccacece's team was left unfairly empty-handed in the resumption of the Libertadores, since the victory that Nacional de Avellaneda took was an exaggerated award that did not reflect what the party had shown in terms of posture and performance of both sets.

In this group F came the first classified to the round of 16: it

is National, which this Tuesday defeated Estudiantes de Mérida 3 to 1 in Venezuela

, with which it reached 12 points, a figure to which the Venezuelans themselves nor Alianza Lima can already arrive,

In any case,

the Academy maintains its chances of accessing the next instance of the Cup intact

, since it has six points in group F, which it obtained before the competition was suspended due to the confinement generated in the middle of the pandemic of coronavirus,

Alianza Lima, meanwhile, comes from drawing 1 to 1 on Monday against César Vallejo for date 13 and has been without winning in League 1 in Peru for six

, in which it is ranked 12 with 15 points, 13 from University leader (28).

To this he adds that

for the Copa Libertadores he already accumulates 20 games without victories

, a streak of eight and a half years, accumulating since March 2012, three draws and 17 defeats.
