Universitario is wrapping up their Apertura 2022 season with a home match at the Estadio Monumental vs UTC. Carlos Compagnucci will guide the team in his second match today after a 2-0 loss which could’ve been a 0-0 draw vs Sport Huancayo. Compagnucci and new Sporting Director Manuel Barreto have already been making roster changes heading into the Clausura season which begins next week.
This is a match that the “U” should win. UTC have not been dominant at all this season and only been proving victories vs low tier clubs. Universitario also needs to improve from last week. Compagnucci is using his remaining Apertura matches to experiment on what needs be improving as well as which player can stay long term and who will be cut. Universitario must win in order to boost points in the aggregate table. The club needs to finished at the top 4 in order to qualify for the 2023 Copa Libertadores.
Kickoff will be at primetime 8pm Peru time, 9pm Atlantic, 6pm Pacific. Match recap will be out tomorrow and the return of Lolo Worldwide will be this Friday reviewing the U’s performance and preview of their Clausura season.
