🏟 Palmeiras vs Universidad Catolica
Defending Copa Libertadores champions Palmeiras delivered a smash and grab 1-0 win against Catolica, making them odds on to make it to the quarter-finals. The sign of a good side is one that wins despite not being at their best, and that is true of Palmeiras in the first leg of this tie.

🏟 Argentinos Juniors vs River Plate
The first-leg ended 1-1 and another attritional, tightly-contested match is expected between these Argentinian rivals. Amazingly, four of River Plate's last five matches on the road have ended all square, and all five of them have featured under 2.5 goals.

🏟 Flamengo vs Defensa y Justicia
Last year's Copa Sudamericana winners head to Brazil hoping to overturn a 1-0 defeat against the current market favourites Flamengo. Defensa y Justicia scored in every away match in their group which was one of the toughest this year, including a 4-3 triumph against current holders Palmeiras on their own patch. Defensa will take the view that attack is the best form of defence here.
