Junior FC vs Union – The final round of the Copa Sudamericana Group H will take place this Friday at Estadio Metropolitano Roberto Meléndez, with Junior FC of Colombia hosting Union Santa Fe of Argentina.
Junior FC has qualified for the Play-Offs after sweeping their group, winning three of their five games while drawing and losing one. The Colombians have a 10-point advantage over the visitors, who are also vying for a spot in the Copa Sudamericana Playoffs.
The hosts are coming off a 2-0 win against Oriente Petrolero in their previous group match. They have the best goal differential in the group (10:4), and their offensive units deserve a lot of praise. Junior FC requires a win or a draw to qualify for the Play-Offs.
Union Santa Fe, on the other hand, is second in the group with 9 points. They won two of the five games they played, drew three times, and never lost a game in Group F. They are now the only unbeaten team in the group, and all they need is a win here to leapfrog their opponents for first place.
The Argentinian team drew 0-0 with Fluminense in their previous Group F match. Junior FC only needs one point to qualify for the final, hence a draw will not suffice. With only two goals conceded so far in the group, this visiting team has the best defense in the group.
This will be the second meeting between these two squads. Their most recent meeting concluded in a 1-1 tie.
