The in-form Sporting Cristal have the upper hand against the struggling Rentistas, yet both teams are desperate. Neither teams registered a win in this competition, and with this being the third match-day of the tournament.
Sao Paulo and Racing Club have raced to the top two spots in the table, and are yet to lose a fixture. If Cristal are serious about their knockout aspirations, they need to make good use of this upcoming encounter.
Despite their slow start to the Libertadores, they have been on a good run lately, and have been scoring goals at a good rate. Importantly, they are also on a great run on the road for the past few months.
Meanwhile, Rentistas are going through a dismal run. They have lost almost every other game in 2021, and have been conceding goals in huge numbers. Note that they have also scored a total of just one goal in Libertadores till now.
By the looks of things, expect a Sporting Cristal victory.
