Sporting Cristal - Secured a High Scoring Draw Against Deportivo Garcilaso (DDDWL)
Going in the matchup, Sporting Cristal will have mixed feelings, as they managed a draw in the last Peruvian outing against Deportivo Garcilaso (4-4). For Sporting Cristal, Rafael Lutiger and Alejandro Hohberg scored. Alejandro was simply sensational, scoring the pivotal hat-trick in the second half of play. Sporting committed 12 fouls, which explains their irregular and untidy gameplay. Therefore, it's important for Sporting Cristal to play with a disciplined strategy, focusing on giving no lose opportunities to the opposition. After going goalless in the last two outings, Sporting Cristal finally managed to score goals against Deportivo Garcilaso. Sporting Cristal has scored in just 2 of the last 5 matches played, which is why the hosts will be looking to come out with a positive and goal oriented strategy. Sporting Cristal haven’t lost a match in the ongoing Peruvian league, giving themselves immense confidence before the home match in Peru.
Expected Opening Lineup for Sporting Cristal
Renato Solís; Carlos Llora, Ignacio, Gianfranco Chávez, Nilson Loyola; Jesús Castillo, Jesús Pretel, Justin Alarcón; Leandro Sosa, Brener, Washington Corozo.
