Sport Huancayo vs Caracas
Date: 24 July 2018, Tuesday
Kick-off at 23:30 UK/ 00:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Huancayo (Huancayo).
The Peruvian side Sport Huancayo have a mountain to climb when they welcome Caracas after a 2-0 defeat in the first leg at Venezuela.
Huancayo often struggled at the continental competitions, but they have given a good account of themselves this term by beating Chilean outfit Espanola 3-0 in front of their home fans to get to this stage.
Therefore, they have the confidence in their bag, but Caracas are no pushovers as well.
Clubs from Venezuela taste little success in continental competitions and the case is no different with Caracas. This is only the second time they crossed the first hurdle, but confidence booster is that they did it with a home and away wins against the Everton from Chile.
The recent results also keep them unbeaten in away games since 2014. Another factor to note is that they have not lost an away game in the competition by more than 1 goal margin.

Sport Huancayo vs Caracas Prediction
This second leg of the Copa Sudamericana round of 16 contest has the potential to go down to the wire, but Caracas certainly stand the better chance of progressing to the next round.
Sport Huancayo are side that rarely overturns a first leg defeat. Here, they need to chase down a 2 goal deficit, which opens up a lot of chances to score for the visiting Venezuelans.
On the wake of this analysis, my money is on Caracas to avoid a defeat by more than 1 goal margin.
