Universitario heads to Matute for the rivalry match vs Alianza Lima. The “U” seeks to avenge their 1-4 home loss vs the twice-relegated club earlier in the year. With a 2-1 victory last match, confidence and morale is high. And the hunger for revenge is visible.
The starting XI has been announced as Carvallo (GK), Cabanillas, Quina, Alonso, Corzo (DEF), Guivin, Murrugarra, Quispe (MID), Polo, Chiquitin (LW, RW), Succar (STR). This is our most solid lineup for this type of matchup. Using the best offensive players we got, the defense is the weakest part of the lineup and they need to play their absolute best today. Good substitutions today would be Novick and Vilca, nobody else.
This is a match that the “U” needs to play their very best. Not to commit any mistakes and not to lose focus. For all the matches they played, this is the match that they need to play their A performance. The goal is no different, leave Matute with a victory.
