Although Venezuelan coach Francesco Stifano has experienced this type of match previously and is aware that his team needs to play flawlessly in order to change the score. The coach must also consider the line-ups used by Zamora and Boston River in order to make a wise decision. Following the loss in the first leg, Zamora participated in the second round of Venezuelan football and lost to Carabobo by a score of 3-0. Reserving some of his top players for the second leg of the continental event was a decision made by the Venezuelan coach, it is important to note. In the upcoming fixture and matches ahead, Zamora needs to cut down its goals conceding average which is around 3.00 goals per match in Libertadores. With a pretty inconsistent form in the contest, Zamora is likely to struggle against Boston River.
