Universitario vs Union Comercio match preview: A must-win night to boost morale
Universitario hosts Union Comercio tonight at the Estadio Monumental in a much needed win. After a disappointing 1-0 in Brazil vs Corinthians, the (U) seeks to avenge their messy week. Comercio also defeated the (U) back in the Apertura which will put the cremas in revenge mode.
Aside from the 1-0 loss in Brazil, Universitario is facing an off the field issue with racial abuse from fitness coach Sebastian Abelino. The issue has been a distraction for the players and management which winning tonight is a must at all costs. Winning tonight will also put Universitario at the top of the Clausura table. The roster lineups also display a couple surprising moves, 1 is not that much surprising however.
The non-surprise roster decision is that Edison Flores will be inactive for tonight for precautionary reasons for next Tuesday’s match vs Corinthians at the Monumental. The surprising roster decision is that Alfonso Barco inactive for personal reasons. Barco posted on social media that he and his family has been receiving death threats so he won’t be suiting up tonight. It’s a shame that fans had to go that low on Barco and his family. Yes, Barco has been struggling tremendously but going low by making threats is wrong.
Kickoff will be at 9pm Lima time (10pm ET, 7pm PT) at the Estadio Monumental. Tonight’s match is a must win for revenge vs Comercio AND to be #1 of the Clausura table. Y DALE U!
