Española VS Cristal

Preview
Unión Española and Sporting Cristal meet at Estadio Santa Laura‑Universidad SEK, in a match for this stage of the Copa Sudamericana (2nd Round). These two teams have never met before, so this will be the first head‑to‑head between them. Sporting Cristal registers significant differences between home and away results, so special attention is due to the home/away factor.

Analysis of Unión Española

The home team comes to this stage of the Copa Sudamericana (2nd Round) after having eliminated Mushuc Runa with a away win by (5‑6), after a penalty shootout, and a home draw by (1‑1) in the previous round. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses in away matches, with 18 goals scored and 17 conceded; against 6 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 17 goals scored and 22 conceded. In their last match, for the Primera División, they got an away win against Unión La Calera by (1‑2). In the last 10 home matches Unión Española has won 4, tied 3 and lost 3. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have only turned the score around in 2.

Playing at home in this first leg, Union Espanola hope to get an advantage on the scoreboard because they are aware that they will have difficulties in the second leg away from home. Union Espanola are expected to take the initiative of the game, thus going up from the opening minutes. In the last match played, Union Espanola beat Union La Calera away from home 2-1. The coach should go with maximum force for this confrontation.

Confirmed Lineup: D. Sanchez, L. Pavez, J. Aja, E. Palomeque, F. Seymour, L. Pavez, R. González, Y. Mejía , M. Dávila, S. Varas, M. Caballero.

Analysis of Sporting Cristal

The team plays its first match in this edition of the Copa Sudamericana with the intention of getting a positive away result. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses in away matches, with 25 goals scored and 19 conceded; against 11 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 33 goals scored and 8 conceded. In their last match, for the Primera División, they got an away loss against Carlos Manucci by (2‑0). In the last 10 away matches Sporting Cristal has won 3, tied 3 and lost 4. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 5 times and have only turned the score around in 1. In the last 11 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 6 of their 12 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Sporting Cristal dream of winning this competition, but know that it will not be an easy task, so they will have to show a great football on the field, since it is a knock-out game. Playing away from home, Sporting Cristal will have to make an aggressive pressing, but so take home at least a draw. The last time they played, Sporting Cristal were defeated away from home by Carlos Mannucci 2-0. The coach should not have major absences for this match.

Confirmed Lineup: P. Álvarez, J. Céspedes, G. Chávez, O. Merlo, J. Madrid, H. Calcaterra, C. Ortiz, C. Gonzáles, J. Cazulo, F. Pacheco, C. Palacios.

Betting suggestion:

By playing at home and need an advantage on the scoreboard, Union Espanola should leave for the attack, in search of the offensive plays. The visitors should make an aggressive on the pitch, thus trying to make life difficult for the hosts. We are looking forward for a close and tight game, so our betting alternative will be that there will be no more than 2.5 goals until the end of the match.
