Independiente del Valle has a young squad (average age just 22 years old) that did really well in last season’s Ecuadorian championship, looking to improve this season. The team, which has participated in the last two editions of the Copa Libertadores, will also be quietly confident of making an impression in this tournament too.
In contrast to Independiente del Valle, Guarani has one of the oldest squads in this tournament, relying on players like 38-year old attacker Rodrigo Lopez and 36-year old defender Julio Caceres. The team hasn’t had the best of starts in the Paraguayan championship either, losing 2-1 away to Nacional before getting thumped 3-0 at home by Deportivo Capiata.
Guarani has an added problem in that Independiente del Valle’s home stadium is at an altitude of 2,500 meters. As such, Guarani coach Fabricio Bassa has opted to base his team in the coastal city of Guayaquil, and fly to Sangolquí just a couple of hours before the match to limit the effects of altitude sickness.
many factors are in Independiente’s favor. The team is young and hungry, they’re at home, the altitude, Guarani’s poor form.
