Universidad Nacional boss Andres Lillini has zero fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this game owing to a completely injury-free group ready to go.
In all likelihood, Pumas look set to opt for a 4-4-2 formation for the game featuring Alfredo Talavera, Jesús Rivas, Nicolas Freire, Alejandro Mayorga, Johan Vásquez, Carlos González, Erik Lira, Favio Álvarez, Carlos Gutiérrez, Juan Ignacio Dinenno and Juan Manuel Iturbe.
Team News: Atlético San Luis
With a completely injury-free squad to pick from, Atlético San Luis manager Guillermo Vázquez doesn’t have any fitness worries to report before this clash.
It’s our belief that Rojiblancos seem likely to begin the game with a 4-4-2 formation, giving starts to Axel Werner, Ramiro González Hérnández, Ventura Alvarado, Cadete, Matias Catalan, Jorge Sánchez, Pablo Barrera, Camilo Mayada, Germán Berterame, Mauro Quiroga and Nicolás Ibáñez.
Our feeling is that Atlético San Luis will likely create enough chances to put a goal past this Universidad Nacional team, however it may not be as many as they will have scored against them.
Our selection here is for a very close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Universidad Nacional after the 90. Should be an interesting one.
