Universitario is set to host AD Tarma at the Estadio Monumental. Over 50,000 fans are expected to be at the Monumental supporting the cremas tonight. After winning 3 matches in a row, the “U” seeks to extend the streak and be within 1 point behind the Apertura leaders Deportivo Garcilaso.
The “U” will be without some key players such as Alex Valera, Jose Carvallo, and Andy Polo due to international duty while Yuriel Celi, Jordan Guivin, and Jose Lujan are out due to a managerial decision. The upside is the long awaited return debut of Roberto Siucho. With many key players out, players like the surging Piero Quispe and Horacio Calcaterra have a great opportunity to keep improving. The crema defense have been really great the past 3 matches.
ADT has been dominant in their last 3 matches. They have shut down their opponents scoreless especially on the road 2 weeks ago vs Sporting Cristal. The “U” seeks to end their shutout streak.
Kickoff will be at 8pm Peru time, 9pm ET, 6pm PT in the Estadio Monumental.
