Athletico Paranaense will try to break a one-goal deficit on Thursday if welcome LDU Quito Brazil in the second leg in the quarterfinals of the Copa Sudamericana.

The Ecuadorian team cross the finish line with a 1-0 lead but will have to fight hard on their journey to defend it.


Prediction for this match

Athletico Paranaense got through the group stage of the Copa Sudamericana relatively easily, leading Group D with 15 points from six games when they scored eight goals and conceded only one goal.

After an equally strong start to the domestic campaign, Antonio OliveiraAfter a 1-0 away win against America de Cali in the first leg of the round of 16 first leg, the team of Nikao convert a penalty before a Vitinho Double and goals from Nikao and Fernando Canesin fired them to a 4-1 home win and a 5-1 overall win.

Since then, however, their form has deteriorated significantly, and El Paranaense stayed in the first leg of the quarter-finals with a late one Djorkaeff Reasco This gives LDU Quito an advantage over the second leg in Brazil.

This prolonged the poor form for Oliveira’s men, and after losing 1-0 to Ceara last time, they have now lost four of their last five games and have suffered three straight league defeats.

They will be desperate to finally fix this form and a return match on home turf could be a good opportunity to turn the tide for the visiting team.

In the meantime, LDU will travel to Quito with the aim of quitting the job after an important home win.

In contrast to their opponents, the guests did not get through the group stage of the Copa Sudamericana on Thursday, but slipped into the knockout phase with third place in their Copa Libertadores group.

Only two points behind Velez Sarsfield in second place, a place that allows promotion to the last 16, Los Albos have had to regret the consecutive defeats, which were limited to eight points, but they did not miss continental football completely, they failed with it a draw against Gremio in the round of 16 of the Copa Sudamericana.

Their chances looked bleak after a 1-0 home defeat, but Los Blancos got back on their journey when Jordy Alcivar After a 2-1 win that night, they saw the away goals forward.

That meant they made it into the last eight and started the game by a narrow margin on Thursday, despite being haunted by their last league game as they threw away a two-goal lead before half-time and finally made it through, thanks to a late equalizer to end the game 3-3.

A somewhat disappointing start to the domestic campaign should give the Ecuadorian team even more encouragement, as they want to go very far in South America’s second division competition.

However, you will be welcome Thiago Heleno and Richard back to the squad after being suspended from the league for the last time.

Renato Kayzer has struggled with goal this season, scoring only once in 13 games in Brazil’s top division so far, and Oliveira could choose to replace him David Terans on Thursday, or use both if you need goals.

LDU Quito’s striker Djorkaeff Reasco is hoping for a spot on Thursday after his late goal from the bench gave them an advantage in the second leg.

He backed up his claim with a goal in the most recent 3-3 draw in the league while winger Jose Quinteros should have secured his place for Thursday with a brace in this game.

Next Back, Franklin Guerra and Luis Caicedo should continue to work together at the heart of the defensive line while looking for one more goal.

Krepski; Henrique, Ivaldo, Viciatto; Marcinho, Richard, Christian, Abner; Nikao; Terans, Kayzer

Probability: Athletico Paranaense 1: 1 LDU Quito (LDU Quito wins 2: 1 in the overall standings)

Athletico Paranaense may have the ability to make up the gap with a commanding victory on Thursday, but given the poor form of late, we see the guests only narrowly falling behind and the guests prevailing.

We expect the Brazilians to find the net but they have been looking unusually shaky for the past few weeks and could be prone to the dangerous front at LDU Quito.
