Universitario hosts Piura-based club Atletico Grau at the Estadio Monumental in front of over 40,000 fans. After a historic CONMEBOL victory in Argentina, the Cremas are home eyeing to extend their unbeaten streak and remain contenders in Liga 1.
Alex Valera returns to the lineup for the 1st time since the draw vs Deportivo Garcilaso. The only key player missing in today’s lineup is Nelson Cabanillas who received a red card from the Garcilaso match. Universitario needs to win in order to remain in the top 3 of the Apertura table. They have every key player for today’s match vs Grau such as Valera, Herrera, Riveros, Ureña, and Calcaterra.
Atletico Grau is in 14th place and lost 3 of their last 5 games. They won their last match vs Sport Boys 3-0 with one of their goals scored by their best player, forward Ray Sandoval. As long as Universitario can lock down defensively like their previous matches, then it’s very possible for another win tonight.
Kickoff will be at 7pm ET, 4pm PT, 6pm Lima time at the Estadio Monumental.
