Atletico Huracan vs Libertad Asuncion
Date: Tuesday, 11th July 2017
Kick-off at 23:15 UK/ 0:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Tomas Adolfo Duco (Buenos Aires).
Atletico Huracan will be keen to make deep runs in the Copa Sudamericana following a disappointing campaign in the Argentine Primera Division. They finished 21st in the domestic league campaign that finished in the last week of June and are coming on the back of a poor run of form. Only 2 wins were gathered in the last 8 games, while they drew 2 and suffered 4 defeats.
In the Copa Sudamericana campaign, they made an amazing comeback in the last round tie. After a humiliating 3-0 defeat in the first leg away at Deportivo Anzoategui, Huracan produced a performance of highest quality to overturn the deficit with a 4-0 win in front of their home fans in the first week of June.
The Club Libertad from Paraguay reached the round 16 of this competition after falling out of top two spots in the Copa Libertadores group phase. They managed just 1 win from their six matches in a group that includes strong teams like Godoy Cruz and Atletico Mineiro.
However, Libertad’s current form is top notch and they are coming after picking five straight wins without conceding a goal.
