Team News: Deportes Copiapó
The Deportes Copiapó manager Héctor Almandoz does not have any fitness concerns to speak of before this match with a fully injury-free squad available for selection.
Team News: O'Higgins
Due to a mostly healthy group, there’s just the sole fitness problem for the O'Higgins manager Pablo de Muner to be concerned about. Matías Belmar (Cruciate ligament tear) won’t be in action.
We’re of the view that O'Higgins and Deportes Copiapó could end up without much reward for their efforts here.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a very even match with a 0-0 score at the end of the 90 minutes.
