Match: Universidad de Chile vs Vasco da Gama Competition: Copa Libertadores Time / Date: 03:30h / 23 May 2018 Venue: Estadio Nacional Julio Martinez Pradanos
Universidad de Chile will host Vasco da Gama in the encounter which should resolve the member toward Copa Sudamericana.
The Chileans began with a victory, but in the next four games they did not win any more and gained only two points. Now they are in the third place that makes their spot in Copa Sudamericana sure.
The visitors are extremely weak with just two points till now and no victory. Their attack has scored only one goal while their defenders have received the enormous 11 goals. If they want to continue their way on the Continental Cup they have to win the three points here.

Prior to Universidad’s 1-0 win away at Vasco earlier on in the group, the sides hadn’t met since a 2011 Sudamericana clash which La U won 3-1 on aggregate.
The home pitch is a big advantage for the hosts and I expect from them to ensure their place to Copa Sudamericana. Meanwhile, both teams have problems finding back of the opponent net and I expect here to be same with less than three goals.
