LDU de Quito vs Vasco da Gama
Date: Wednesday, 25 July 2018
Kick-Off at 23:30 UK
Venue: Estadio de Liga Deportiva Universitaria (Quito)
Vasco da Gama travel to Estadio de Liga Deportiva Universitaria in Quito for the first leg of their Copa Sudamericana 2nd Round clash, hoping to build on the domestic success of recent and snatch a positive result on Wednesday.
Vasco have beaten Bahia 2-0 in Copa do Brazil and earned four points in two Serie A outings, as they held Fluminense to a 1-1 draw and beat Gremio (1-0) – both in front of the home crowd.
Jorginho will now want them very motivated and although his men have had more troubles snatching points on the road, we do expect such an outfit.
LDU de Quito have finished the Primera A 1st Phase at the top of the table but they’ve only just started the 2nd Phase with a loss to Delfin, failing to bounce back from a 0-2 home loss to Deportivo Cuenca.
They’ve largely struggled for consistency through late June and early July, which could prove costly in Copa Sudamericana, where anything besides a win in the first leg would be far from a success.
