Atletico Junior vs FBC Melgar
Date: Thursday, 9 May 2019
Kick-Off at 01:30 UK
Venue: Estadio Metropolitano Roberto Melendez, Barranquilla
Atletico Junior have shocked San Lorenzo in front of the hoem crowd in late April and although they’ve struggled for results since, they now host Melgar in the clash of the Group F bottom two looking to build on such a performance at Estadio Metropolitano Roberto Melendez.
Junior have indeed been tougher to beat in front of the home crow and they suffered just a loss to Palmeiras in last ten outings here – despite struggles to perform away. They’ve kept three clean sheets in the last four outings, which will have them just as motivated to say farewell to the competition in good spirits.
Melgar have seen a very convincing home loss to Palmeiras and saw Deportivo Binacional bag all three points in Primera Divison, only ending the unwanted streak with a 2-2 draw against Sport Huancayo – struggling to capitalize even on the goals scored as they conceded a late equalizer on Sunday. Jorge Pautasso will want more from his men and they have no high stakes involved, which could have them very dangerous too.
