Team News: Everton Viña del Mar
Everton Viña del Mar manager Javier Torrente will be grateful to have no fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this clash thanks to a fully injury-free squad available to select from.
Team News: Universidad de Chile
U de Chile manager Héctor Caputto Gómez has to choose a team with limited availability. Pablo Aránguiz (Metatarsal Fracture) and Franco Lobos (Ruptured cruciate ligament) are those who can’t be considered.
We believe that Universidad de Chile would be disappointed if they were not to breach the defence of this Everton Viña del Mar team, although it possibly won’t quite be as many as they will have scored against them.
We’re expecting a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 win for Everton Viña del Mar at the end of this one. Should be a good one.
