Racing Club vs Sao Paulo build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
It was a somewhat straightforward Copa Libertadores group stage for Racing Club who finished unbeaten in Group E with 14 points. La Academia rescued a point at Rentistas (1-1) before registering a 2-1 victory over Sporting Cristal but they couldn’t make it back-to-back wins as round of 16 opponent Sao Paulo held them to a goalless draw. Juan Antonio Pizzi’s men recovered by winning their remaining three games on the bounce including a 0-1 success away to São Paulo and on their return to Estádio do Morumbi they left with a 1-1 draw. If they do get past Sao Paulo then Racing will take another step towards a first Copa Libertadores title since 1967.
It could not have started more perfectly for Sao Paulo who left Sporting Cristal on matchday one with a 3-0 success. O Clube da Fé followed that up with a 2-0 win over Rentistas putting them in command of the group. A point against Racing wasn’t damaging but one point from the next six available was. Despite winning their final game they would finish behind Racing whom Hernán Crespo’s side welcomed in the first knockout phase. Now on the backfoot Sao Paulo have it all to do if they are to win a fourth Copa Libertadores crown and first since 2005 subsequently making them Brazil’s most decorated club in competition history.

Player to watch: Tomás Chancalay (Racing)
If there’s one area Racing Club pride themselves in is developing the next wave. The player in question doesn’t have to come up from their esteemed academy, which is the case of 22-year-old forward Tomás Chancalay, who is currently on loan from Club Atlético Colón. To say he’s made an impact in Racing’s tournament would be an understatement.
hancalay, a predominantly left winger, is in the running for the Copa Libertadores golden shoe. He’s one goal shy of the leading pack which includes Gabriel Barbosa (Flamengo), Miguel Borja (Junior), Hulk (Atlético Mineiro) and Rony (Palmeiras). A hat-trick on matchday six against Rentistas bolstered his chances and despite not finding the net at Sao Paulo he’ll fancy his chances on home soil.
