Sao Paulo vs Racing Club build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Sao Paulo head into this match fresh from a resounding 4-0 win over Mirassol in their Campeonato Paulista semi-final clash at the weekend. In fact, the Brazilian giants are unbeaten in their last 14 matches across all competitions and head into this match knowing a win will confirm their spot in the Libertadores knockout rounds.
Racing, meanwhile, are unbeaten in their last four across all competitions and haven’t conceded a goal during that time. Just like Sao Paulo, Juan Antonio Pizzi’s men know that a win here will seal their progression to the round-of-16, while both teams could make it regardless of the result here, should Rentistas fail to beat Sporting Cristal.
- Sao Paulo (vs Mirassol): Volpi; Arboleda, Miranda, Leo; Vinicius, Santos, Liziero, Reinaldo; Sara, Pablo, Benitez.
- Racing Club (vs Velez): Arias; Pillud, Sigali, Dominguez, Mena; Miranda, Martinez, Piatti; Chancalay, Cvitanich, Copetti.
Dani Alves missed the match against Mirassol on Sunday but should return to action here. Racing, meanwhile, will remain without Fabian Sanchez due to an ACL injury.

Player to watch: Ignacio Piatti (Racing Club)
After spending over five years lighting up MLS with Montreal, Nacho Piatti returned home to his native Argentina last year and has continued to pull out moments of pure brilliance.
The 36-year-old’s latest wondergoal came against Sporting Cristal in his previous Libertadores appearance, drilling home his side’s second of the match from 30 yards out as Racing Club sealed a 2-0 win.
GOLAÇO DE PIATTI!

He might be closer to 40 than 30, but Piatti is still capable of single-handedly turning a game in its head with his keen eye for goal, defence-splitting passing and ethereal movement. Can he fire his side into the Libertadores knockout stages with another big performance here?
