Second leg of the first round of Conmebol Sudamericana between the Uruguayan team of Liverpool and the Venezuelan team Llaneros.
Liverpool qualified this tournament by winning the “Torneo Intermedio” played between the Apertura and Clausura tournaments. They beat River Plate in final. This competition consisted of two groups whose composition depended on the final standings of the Torneo Apertura.
Llaneros qualified for this tournament by finishing only 3rd of “Tornero Clausura”, that is the second tournament of the season in Venezuela. They qualified since the 2 teams above them in Clausura already qualified for Copa Libertadores.
Liverpool had a good run in the tournament last year by eliminating Bahia that is a Brazilian team used to play this tournament. They also beat at home one of the best team from Venezuela (Caracas) but failed to qualify in the second leg after conceding a goal in the last minutes of their game.
Llaneros never played in this tournament.
Liverpool made a solid start in 2020, winning the Super Copa against Nacional 4-2, and getting 1 win and 1 draw both at home.
The situation for Llaneros is a lot worse. They have been downgraded in second division due to huge financial issues of the club. This caused the departure of the key players in each line, including goalkeeper Luis Terán, defender Héctor Acosta, midfielder Alexander Osorio and attacker Yohalex Vásquez.
The huge difference of level and form was obvious during the first leg when these two teams met 2 weeks ago. Liverpool was playing away in Venezuela and despite that it was a one-sided game. Llaneros never existed during this game. Liverpool got 19 attempts to score (11 shot on target) while Llaneros did not even got one dangerous attempt.
During the second leg, Liverpool will keep being motivated to score more and more goals. They are playing an important competition, at home in front of their fans. They have a couple of games played in 2020 with great result, moral is high. This game is a perfect opportunity for them to maintain their great form against an opponent that is struggling a lot at that time.
Weather will be perfect for the game (sunny, under 20 degrees with a low wind).
Like last year when they played Conmebol, this game will be played in a different stadium that the one they are used to during championship. Better stadium, better infrastructure, better pitch and higher capacity (18 000 vs 8 000).
We are less than one hour before the game, line-up is now available and very solid.
Result: WON ! Liverpool URU won 5-0 against Llaneros de Guanare FC (2-0 HT)
