Both teams played in the local championship with a bit of turnover, but hosts with one day more of rest.
More, Olimpia's topscorer Santa Cruz (13g) played only 57 minutes, but he is 37 years old and today Olimpia will play st 2800 mt., so not the best for the whole team but also for this "old" guy and considering that second scorer Mendieta ( 11g) is injured, I don't think it's so easy to score for them.
Olimpia has other worries, with the missings also fo regular keeper Aguilar, Montenegro ( att.58 2g), Vuidez ( att.3+13 4g) and Quintana ( mid. 16+1 1g).
Azcuena, 35 years old keeper will be in goal, he already played five matches as a starter in the championship but this is the debut in Libertadores.
Quito arrived at this stage winning ever 2019 match at home, against San josè, but also against Brasilian Flamengo and Penarol.
For them Guerra ( mid. 12) should be the only absence but should play Valencia, newcomer def. from man Utd, where was absolute starter two seasons ago and that already debut in the last match in the local championship.
