Going in the matchup, Union Magdalena is coming off a draw against La Equidad (0-0), in which Wilder Guisao, Fabian Cantillo, and Ronaldo Lora were sent off the field. Even with three players short, Union Magdalena managed to settle out a draw, which is quite terrific. However, for the upcoming fixtures, Union Magdalena will be hoping for much more disciplined gameplay. Coach Claudio Rodriguez will be inclined toward picking the bench strength for the upcoming matchup.

Junior F.C - Coming off a Defeat Against America de Cali (LDLLW)
Going in the matchup, Junior F.C. is coming off a defeat against America de Cali (2-0) and a draw against Santa Fe (1-1). Junior F.C. has been defeated thrice in the last 5 outings, which is why it stands 19th in the points table. With only 3 goals scored and 5 conceded, Junior even reflects the same average as Union. Substitutions in the form of Andrey Estupinan, Carlos Bacca, Homer Martinez, and Carlos Sierra were unable to make an impact in the last game against America de Cali. However, Junior F.C. has a limited pool of decent players in the lineup, which is why we might expect similar players to appear in the upcoming contest.
