Before the pandemic, Defensa y Justicia had lost both of their games in CONMEBOL Libertadores. However, on the return to the competition, it reaped two victories that placed it in second place in Group G and it depends on himself to qualify for the round of 16.
The leader of the zone is Santos with 10 points, the Falcon follows him with 6, Olimpia comes third with 5 and Delfín closes with only one unit. The complication for those of Hernan Crespo it will be in having to define his pass with two encounters as a visitor.
IF DEFENSE WINS:
With a victory on the next date against Delfín in Ecuador, Florencio Varela’s team will reach 9 points and could ensure their pass to the second round if Olimpia fell with Santos in Asunción. If the Paraguayans add up, the definition will be postponed until the last day.
IF DEFENSE TIES:
By scoring just one point against the Ecuadorian cast, the Falcon risks losing second place should the Dean defeat Santos at home. Even with a win for the Brazilian team or a draw, qualifying will have to wait until the closing of the group, where they will have the most difficult stop in Brazil.
IF DEFENSE LOSES:
A Falcon fall to Delfín would give Olimpia the opportunity to beat Santos in Paraguay and climb to second place. In addition, the Cetacean would reach 4 points and get into the fight for the classification, forcing Defense and Justice to add at least one point in San Pablo to have a chance of advancing to the second round.
