The result must have boosted their confident tremendously after last year’s disastrous first round exit at the hands of Tunisian outfit Etoile Sportive du Sahel. However, as reported in their recent interview on FIFA website, the match against the reigning Copa Libertadores winner will be a different proposition altogether.
Like Pachua, LDU too will have three Albiceleste players in their starting line but the man who will be responsible to orchestra their win will be on touchline instead.
Edgardo BAUZA was the mastermind in making LDU the first Ecuadorian side to win South America premier club competition. He has built a formidable side around the like of Norberto ARAUJO, Damian MANSO and Claudio BIELER.
With his intense to win and to desire to beat anyone, anywhere LDU should not be taken lightly. The Mexican side will be on their toe for this match.
Kick of time starts at 1930 local time at the National Stadium in Tokyo.
