Estudiantes vs. Athletico Paranaense Match Analysis and Prediction

Copa Libertadores quarter-finals will see Estudiantes de La Plata square off Atletico PR this Friday at  Estadio Jorge Luis Hirschi. Kickoffs at 03:30 EAT.

For a club which has generally found themselves sliding on a downwards trajectory in recent years, with three bottom-half finishes in the last four seasons compounded by currently languishing 23rd in Argentina’s Primeira Division after 12 games of the second phase, Thursday’s quarter-final clash is a humungous one for Estudiantes and their passionate fan base.

Estudiantes de La Plata prepare for this fixture off the back of 0-0 Superliga stalemate with San Lorenzo in their previous match. In that game, Estudiantes had 46% possession and eight shots with one of them on target while San Lorenzo got 18 shots with three of them on target.

Meanwhile, after winning the Copa Sudamericana for the second time last year, former Brazil boss Felipe Scolari is aiming to guide Furacão to a Copa Libertadores triumph for the first time in the club’s history.

Atletico PR will want another win following 2-3 Serie A victory over Atlético Mineiro in their most recent encounter. In that game, Atletico PR had 36% possession, 10 shots with five of them on target and goals scored by Vitor Roque (46′, 56′) and Agustín Canobbio (96′). Atlético Mineiro got 21 shots with eight of them on target and goals by Igor Rabello (30′) and Cristian Pavón (54′).
