One of this week’s most noteworthy Copa Libertadores matches will be when Flamengo hosts San Lorenzo this Wednesday, March 8, 2017 (4:45 PM Pacific) at the Estadio do Maracana in Rio de Janeiro. Both teams, along with Universidad Catolica and Atletico Paranaense, form part in Group 4 which is one of the competition’s most difficult groups.
Flamengo will commence their Libertadores campaign as the favorite to win their group, and earning a win against a difficult opponent like San Lorenzo will place them on the right track. The team coached by Ze Ricardo qualified into the competition by finishing in 3rd place during last year’s Brasileirao. The ‘mengao’ enters this match after recently losing against their arch-rival Fluminense in the final of the Copa Guanabara.
San Lorenzo will have a very difficult match on Wednesday considering that they visit a difficult stadium like the Maracana which opens its doors to football for the first time since the Rio Olympics. Moreover, the team coached by Diego Aguirre has not played an official match in 2017 due to the ongoing strike in the Argentine first division. Nonetheless, the ‘ciclon’ will be a strong visitor lead by players like Nestor Ortigoza and Fernando Belluschi.
