This will be the first direct confrontation between these two teams, as they have never faced each other before. Particular attention is required for the home / away condition, since both teams present significantly different results at home and abroad.
The home team got access to this phase of the Copa Libertadores (8th Finals) after the 2nd place won in Group 3, with a total of 10 points. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses in away matches; against 7 wins, 6 draws and 2 losses at their stadium. The team comes to this match after a win away with Hurricane by (0-2). In the last 10 home matches for all competitions, Atlético Tucumán won 3, drew 5 and lost 2.

There are 2 periods highlighted in the last 13 home matches for all competitions: he suffered 4 of his 7 goals between the minutes (76′-90 ‘) and 3 of his 7 between (61′-75’).
In this first duel between the two teams valid for the eighth-finals of the Copa Libertadores, Atlético Tucumán will act before their fans, in addition to adding a sequence of seven games without knowing defeats for their competitions. In this context, the Argentine team played duels for the Copa Libertadores itself, also for the Argentine Championship, in which it finished in a modest 15th position in 2017/18, and for the Argentine Cup, in which it comes from two wins. We emphasize that Atlético Tucumán is not one of the most traditional clubs in this competition, having only two participations in its totality, in addition to not having many victories in the Argentine championship either. In this game it is expected that coach R. Zielinski opts for a more offensive stance, however, without neglecting its defensive sector. Outstanding in this squad are the attackers L. Diáz and L. Rodríguez, both with two goals each scored by the Copa Libertadores.

We remember that after three rounds of the Clausura of 2018, he alternated between a victory, a draw and a defeat. The National of Medellin is the greatest champion of the Colombian championship, besides that among other titles it has also conquered the Copa Libertadores twice, being the last one in 2016. We also emphasize that it has in its totality seven participations in the Continental Tournament. For this game it is expected that coach J. Almirón opts for a more cautious stance, however, he should not renounce the goal opportunities he has created, also seeking to surprise through counterattacks. It stands out in this squad forward D. Moreno, player who scored three goals in the Copa Libertadores so far.
