Universidad Catolica and Internacional will square off at the Estadio San Carlos de Apoquindo on Friday at 01:30am (Uk time) , with both teams looking to get back to winning ways in Copa Libertadores group E.
Universidad Catolica have looked pretty solid over the past month, despite sitting bottom of the table in group E. The Chilean side has only lost once in nine competitive fixtures, which was actually against Gremio in their most recent Copa Libertadores match. At home, U. Catolica have been even better with four wins and one draw in their last five games, having conceded just two goals in the process.
During this run, U. Catolica even managed a solid 2-0 win over Gremio, a team that has already qualified for the Copa Libertadores play-offs. Universidad can’t qualify for the play-offs anymore, but they do have a chance to progress to the Copa Sudamericana if they finish third in the standings. This means they need to win this match against Internacional and hope that America De Cali don’t get more than one point in their match versus Gremio.
Meanwhile, Internacional head into this clash high on confidence following a seven-game unbeaten streak across all competitions. They have won their most recent four games in the Brazilian Serie A, having scored 11 goals in the process. Internacional are currently tied on 34 points with Flamengo RJ at the top of the Serie A table and they will definitely look to qualify further in the Copa Libertadores this Friday. Away from home, the Brazilians have suffered just five defeats in 15 competitive trips and are currently undefeated in four. Furthermore, they are unbeaten in two Copa Libertadores trips throughout this group stage campaign and have kept a clean sheet in both games.
Will Internacional book their place into the play-offs? Or will U. Catolica extend their unbeaten home streak to six games?

Universidad Catolica and Internacional’s previous line-ups:
- Universidad Catolica (vs U. De Concepcion): Dituro, Magnasco, Lanaro, Huerta Jerez, Rebolledo, Silva, Saavedra Pino, Valencia Morello, Lezcano, Zampedri, Puch.
- Internacional (vs Vasco): Lomba, Rodinei, Jose Gabriel, Cuesta, Uendel, Edenilson, Rodrigo, Guilherme, Galhardo, Patrick, Hernandez.
Universidad Catolica have no fresh injury concerns ahead of this tie, but Ariel Holan is vying to start with Jose Pedro Fuenzalida in midfield. Another change from the previous lineup against U. De Concepcion should be Alfonso Parot, who will be hopeful he has done enough to replace Stefano Magnasco.
Internacional will be without Gabriel Boschilia, Heitor, Paolo Guerrero, Johnny, Marcelo Daniel Musto and Renzo Saravia for this clash. However, Eduardo Coudet could start here, while the backline may be unchanged from last time out against Vasco.
