Santa Fe and Santiago Wanderers face in the Nemesio Camacho Stadium “El Campin”, in a return match of this phase of the Copa Libertadores (3rd Round), after in the first leg the Santa Fe won by (1-) 2). The Santiago Wanderers presents considerable differences in their results at home and as a visitor, so in this game the home factor may be decisive.
After the win was by (1-2), the home team comes to this second leg with a 1 goal advantage. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive levels in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses in away matches; against 5 wins, 8 draws and 2 losses at their stadium. In the last match they played, for the First A, they lost with the Oil Alliance by (2-1). In the last 10 home matches the Santa Fe has 3 wins, 5 draws and 2 losses. The team allowed goals to the opponent in 8 of the last 10 matches, so there are defensive processes that need improvement. In their away matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 16 of the last 34 matches have ended with Under 1,5 goals and 26 out of 34 have ended with Under 2,5 goals.
The Santa Fe returns to play at home after three consecutive games playing away from home, being that in that period the only victory he achieved was for the Copa Libertadores, in the first leg against Santiago Wanderers. In the other two games, to count for the Colombian Championship, in which currently occupies the last position, the team has been defeated and remains the only team that has not yet scored in the competition. The local team is going through a negative moment in this beginning of the season, since it only achieved two victories in the last eight games that it disputed, if we consider all the competitions that it disputes and also the friendly ones. For this game, it is likely that the technician will maintain the usual tactical scheme, 4-3-3, with highlight for Morelo in the attack.
After the defeat at home, the visiting team comes to this second leg with a disvalue of 1 goal and with the difficult task of recovering this negative result as a visitor. This is a team that, oddly enough, was better outside than at home, as in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses in away matches; against 2 wins, 9 draws and 4 losses at their stadium. In the last 10 away matches Santiago Wanderers has won 6, tied 2 and lost 2. Their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches. In 15 games, he suffered the first goal 5 times and never got the comeback.
Santiago Wanderers have a very difficult mission in this game, as they failed to take advantage of the home factor in the first leg to gain an advantage in the tie, as they were defeated and complicated their situation in the Copa Libertadores. However, the defeat suffered by Santa Fe was the only one in the last four games. Before that, the team was unbeaten for four games, which includes the first two days of the Second Division of the Chilean Championship, in which currently occupies the fourth position. Although he has managed to score goals in his last five games, he has not shown much offensive strength, since in each of these games he only scored one goal. The tactical scheme for this game must be 3-5-2 or 3-4-3, without significant absences in the starting line-up.
