Universidad de Concepcion vs Vasco – Copa Libertadores: Vasco travels to Chile to face Universidad de Concepcion on the qualifying stage of the Copa Libertadores
It is incredible to think about the momentum and good moment of form that Vasco finished the year with, considering the institutional nightmare that the club is on during this start of 2018.
A political battle on the club’s elections has left the club paralyzed watching the fight between the two presidency candidates that were questioning the decision in court.
In the end, on a turnaround that many fans consider indecent, Vasco saw a long shot take over the club. They almost didn’t have the money to travel to Chile.
But they somehow managed to do it and they will play on this qualifying stage of the Copa Libertadores. But their technical problems are worse.
On this fight, Vasco lost a lot of players such as Nene, Vital and Martins and they are still unable to count with Luís Fabiano while only having the quiet signing of Riascos.
Universidad de Concepcion has made history by managing to qualify for the Copa Libertadores.
The young Chilean team doesn’t have tradition to rival with the big names of domestic football.
Still, they were able to ensure their spot by winning the Copa Libertadores’ play-offs of the Chilean league that has put the vice-champions of the Clausura and Apertura on the competition.
That’s an important detail. If on the Apertura, Universidad de Concepcion was able to make a great campaign, on Clausura things didn’t go so well, with the team finishing only in 10th place with 17 points, far from the top.
Universidad de Concepcion vs Vasco – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This should be a close match since that neither of these teams is on their best moment of form on their respective leagues. But I don’t trust this team from Vasco.
They play very poor football, they’ve gone through a lot of changes, but they didn’t sign a lot of players. I believe that they can even advance in Chile, but it won’t be easy.
