Emelec (Ecuador) vs Huracan (Argentina)
Emelec started their Copa Libertadores’ campaign in 2019 with a 0-0 away draw at Deportivo Lara from Venezuela. On Sunday, coach Mariano Soso fielded a completely alternative XI, which drew 0-0 away at Delfin. After finishing 2018 as runners-up in the league, they are producing an irregular performance, with seven points in five weeks as a product of two victories, one draw and two defeats. The team played two home games in 2019, winning one and losing the other.
Huracan is also going through difficult times. Last Thursday, they were unlucky to lose 1-0 at home to Cruzeiro from Brazil. On Sunday, the alternative squad succumbed to another defeat (3-1 at their own stadium to relegation candidates San Martin Tucuman). El Globo has dropped down to the ninth spot of the Superliga table on 32 points. Antonio Mohamed’s men are on seven matches without a win in all competitions (two draws, five defeats), having lost the last four consecutively. On away turf, Huracan hasn’t celebrated any victories in the last five games, with three draws and two losses.
Two teams in trouble will clash in Guayaquil, both with troubles to score, a tight game should be expected.
