Emelec, perhaps, will have this Tuesday the most important match so far this year, when they visit Atlético Mineiro in the return match between the two in the round of 16 of the Copa Libertadores 2022.
The blue team has the difficult task of breaking a 1-1 parity, achieved in the first leg and that can mean a match point to achieve a historic result or, simply, fall in a gallant match against the Belo Horizonte eleventh.
Although Emelec did not do so badly as a visitor in the group stage in which they collected four out of nine possible points, the game against Mineiro has a different edge, knowing that the Brazilian team at home was not as effective at home , by achieving 4 of 9 units in dispute. The last game was lost 1-2 against Deportes Tolima.
Emelec will hardly have his game number two in the second half of the year, since in the 2022 Ecuador Cup he has not been able to debut, while preparing a new stage in the 2022 LigaPro, whose phase 2 begins on the weekend.
Ismael Rescalvo’s team arrived in Belo Horizonte on Sunday night to train this Monday at the Cruzeiro stadium, Atlético Mineiro’s archrival.
In the current Copa Libertadores, Emelec is the only Ecuadorian team that is still on track, after the elimination of Barcelona SC in the third phase and the first leg of Independiente del Valle to the Copa Sudamericana.
