Athletico Paranaense vs Libertad preview: A very close and tough duel

Athletico Paranaense

After winning Copa Sudamericana last season for the second time in their history, Athletico Paranaense is not doing that well in Copa Libertadores this season since they are currently last in their group. That being said, they are just three points behind the team in the first place, so they still have a chance to get to the next stage.


After the first four rounds in Copa Libertadores group stages, Libertad is sitting at the top of the group with seven points and they are in good position of getting to the next stage. However, all the other teams in the group are close and Libertad still needs to get more points if they want to make it to the next phase.
