South America – Copa Libertadores
Date: Thursday, 19 May 2022
Kick-off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET

The top-most spot in the group is already out of hand and all that remains is the runner-up position. And with just two fixtures remaining, time is fast running out for the remaining teams.
Deportivo and Independiente are placed in the last two spots in the table, and whoever wins this upcoming encounter will have a shot at securing the second place, while whoever loses will definitely be eliminated in the group stages.
