Sydney vs Arsenal
Date: Thursday, 13th July 2017
Kick off at 23:15 UK/ 00:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Victor Agustin Ugarte.
Estudiantes will continue their adventure in continental competitions this Wednesday when they are about to take on Bolivian Nacional Potosi in the first leg of Copa Sudamericana’s second round.
The hosts have had a dreadful finish to their LFPB campaign as they lost three and drew one of their last four league outings.
This caused the drop to sixth position at the end of Apertura Adecuacion. The main problem for the Argentine manager Carlos Leeb is the fact his team did not have a single competitive game since the end of June.
However, the Bolivians represent a real threat on the home pitch in continental competitions which could have best been noticed in the first round when Nacional claimed a 3-1 win over Sport Huancayo at Estadio Victor Agustin Ugarte.
Estudiantes have been drawn to the group of death in this term of Copa Libertadores and they came third at the end in spite of winning each of their last two fixtures with Barcelona and Botafogo.
The Uruguayan manager Gustavo Matosas can generally be happy with the campaign his side had in the top flight of the Argentine football where Estudiantes took the third position (right behind Boca and River) at the end of the season.
