Team News: Deportes La Serena
Rodrigo Brito (Fibula Fracture) and Marko Biskupovic (Achilles tendon rupture) will not be able to play for La Serena gaffer Francisco Bozan.
Team News: Universidad de Chile
In an otherwise healthy group, there’s just a single fitness worry for the Universidad de Chile boss Héctor Caputto Gómez to be concerned with. Franco Lobos (Ruptured cruciate ligament) won’t be in action.
We believe that Deportes La Serena may not find it easy to be putting a goal past this Universidad de Chile lineup who we reckon will score at least once to put them ahead.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a narrow 0-1 win for Universidad de Chile when the full-time whistle blows.
Will be interesting to see how this one goes.
