Venue: Estadio Ramon Aguilera Costas.
Atletico Tucuman are hoping to save a desperate season with the Copa Sudamericana success.
The Argentines are set to take on the Bolivian Oriente Petrolero in the second round of the competition.
The first leg of the tie will be played on Tuesday evening at Estadio Ramon Aguilera Costas.
Eduardo Villegas’ squad ended their campaign in Apertura Adecuacion season of LFPB at the fourth position having claimed 37 points from 22 matches.
Oriente Petrolero are a completely different team when they play on the home patch where they claimed six wins and three draws in last nine matches in all competitions.
The Bolivians will have an even greater advantage over Atletico Tucuman as the altitude in Santa Cruz de la Sierra will play a significant role in the first leg.
The Argentines have had a turbulent season which saw the team finishing in the bottom half of the Primera Division standings (out of 30 clubs).
This caused the change on the bench as the former Racing Club manager Ricardo Zielinski took charge of the team and he is about to make his debut just against Oriente Petrolero.
