The Huachipato boss Gustavo Álvarez has zero fitness concerns to speak of before this clash with a fully injury-free group available to select from.
Team News: Universidad Católica
In an otherwise full-strength group, there’s only a single fitness problem for the Universidad Católica manager Ariel Holan to be concerned with. Eugenio Mena (Tibia and fibula fracture) won’t be playing here. Nehuén Paz will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We’ve got the feeling that Universidad Católica have the capability to find the net against this Huachipato outfit, although it possibly won’t quite be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We reckon that it will be both teams to score in a 2-1 winning score for Huachipato at the end of the 90 minutes. Expecting it to be very competitive.
