For its part, Alianza Lima lives two different realities both in League 1 and in the Copa Libertadores. The Blue and Whites have won four consecutive victories in the local tournament and are in 10th place with 17 points. Although, a win would put him in contention for the Opening Tournament.
While, in the continental competition, the intimate cast has a hard time since in four games they have only added one point in Group F. In the middle of the week, they tied 1-1 against Colo Colo at the National Stadium and hope to tempt the third box (Copa Sudamericana position).
After equality, DT Carlos Bustos expressed his analysis. “These are intense matches, obviously the rival was better in the first half, but we tried to balance it in the second and luckily we quickly reached a draw,” he said at a press conference.
“Afterwards I think it was a game in which neither team speculated, we went for the result. Surely a little more precision was needed to be able to have more goal situations, we also had some near the end, ”he mentioned.
“I think it is the most difficult group of all, with very good teams, obviously we are down in the table, we are not as we would like. We still have the chance to fight and if it is not enough for the Libertadores, we still have the chance to host Fortaleza, which is 3 points up”, he added.
