Bolivar have already secured the appearance in the most elite football competition in South America by winning the LFPB’s Apertura Adecuacion with a nine-point advantage ahead of The Strongest at the second position.
The hosts will thus come into the second round of Copa Sudamericana tie with LDU Quito in high spirits looking to build on the fine displays from their domestic league.
The Spanish manager Benat San Jose has been doing a tremendous job leading Bolivar to one of the greatest successes in the last couple of years.
The host finished the competition in a super strong fashion with eight wins and a draw in last nine matches.
The team has been super impressive in the defense as they kept seven clean sheets in last nine fixtures in all competitions.
LDU Quito had a disappointing campaign in the first phase of Primera A as they took no more than 19 points from 22 games to take the 10th position out of 12 teams.
The manager Pablo Repetto can, however, be happy with his team’s string finish to the season as LDU clinched back-to-back wins over Universidad Catolica and Clan Juvenil with the total goal differential of 6-0.
