Fuerza Amarilla vs Santa Fe
Date: Wednesday, 28th June 2017
Kick off at 01:45 UK/ 02:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Banco del Pacifico.
Santa Fe will travel to Estadio banco del Pacifico for the first leg of their second round of Copa Sudamericana tie with Ecuadorian Fuerza Amarilla.
The Colombians are favourites over two legs, but the hosts will at least try and make damage in the first match set to be played this Tuesday in front of their fans.
Fuerza Amarilla will be looking to build on the power attacking display shown at the weekend in the thumping of Deportivo Cuenca in the top flight of Ecuador8ian football.
Speaking of their domestic campaign, it has been far from ideal for Julio Marcelo Fleitas and his men who currently sit at the ninth position of Primera A standings.
However, we must praise the display La Banana Mecanica showed in the opening round of the continental competition at the start of the month when they shocked Chilean O’Higgins 2-0 on the home ground.
Los Cardenales have not been any better in their domestic league where they also hold the ninth position after 20 rounds of the competition.
The Uruguayan manager can, however, be happy to see quite an improvement in his team’s defensive displays since Santa Fe did not concede two or more goals in each of their last six fixtures.

This will be the first ever head to head meeting between the two teams.
Fuerza Amarilla vs Santa Fe: Prediction
The quality goes on Santa Fe’s side without doubts, but literally anything is possible in the first leg at Estadio Banco del Pacifico.
It is likely to believe that there will be a single goal (if any) making the difference because we don’t expect to enjoy the beauty of the game in an important fixture for both sides.
