America de Cali are still looking for a place in the next round of Copa Libertadores when they travel to Arena do Gremio to face Gremio on Friday at 01:30am (UK time).
Gremio are already through, having beaten Universidad Catolica and Internacional in their last two Copa Libertadores matches to book their place in the next round. The Brazilians may have already qualified, but they still need a point in order to cement the first position in the group.
Gremio hasn’t played spectacular football in this group, but their solid defence they have shown has been the key reason for their successful group stage campaign. They have only conceded twice in five group matches and head into this tie on the back of a goalless draw at Sao Paulo in their most recent Serie A match.
America De Cali, on the flip side, are in dire need of a victory here in order to retain their hopes of securing a place in the next round. However, they do also need Internacional to lose against bottom-placed Universidad Catolica, which doesn’t seem likely. The good news is that America De Cali have enjoyed a solid run of results lately, having lost just once in nine competitive fixtures. The Colombian team are undefeated in six games across all competitions at the moment and did well to score at least twice in three of these. The worrying thing is that America De Cali are winless in their last five trips, although the most recent three of these have ended in draws.
Will Gremio secure another victory here over America De Cali? Or will the Colombians end their five-game winless streak away from home?

- America De Cali(vs Atletico Nacional): Graterol Nade, Ortiz Cabezas, Segovia, Torres, Arrieta, Jaramillo, Paz Mulato, Carrascal, Vergara, Rodriguez, Moreno.
For Gremio, Luiz Fernando and Alisson are both doubtful due to some muscle injuries, while Leo Gomes is suffering with a knee injury. This means that Thaciano could be in the starting line up to replace the presence of Alisson for this clash. Brenno, Guilherme Guedes and Paulo Miranda are all long-term absentees.
America De Cali can’t count on Adrian Ramos, Rodrigo Ureña, Aldair Rodriguez, Emerson Batalla and Carlos Barreiro, as all of them are still on the sidelines through injury.
