Team News: Unión Española
Unión Española manager Ronald Fuentes doesn’t have any fitness worries at all before this game with a completely healthy squad ready to go.
Team News: O'Higgins
Thanks to a largely healthy squad, there is only the sole fitness worry for the O'Higgins boss Patricio Graff to be concerned with. Hugo Herrera (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.
For this match, we think that Unión Española should really fashion enough chances to find the net more than once while possibly not conceding when they meet O'Higgins, who might well find it a difficult task getting goals.
We reckon that it will be a comfortable 2-0 winning margin for Unión Española at the end of the 90 minutes.
