Deportes Mole previews Wednesday’s Copa Libertadores clash between Colón and Talleres, including predictions, team news and possible line-ups.
For the first time since 1998, Colon will host a round of 16 match Libertadores Cup when they receive Argentine colleagues workshops to the Brigadier General Estanislao López Stadium on Wednesday.
The T came out tied 1-1 in the first leg of this Round of 16 tie, thanks to an 87th-minute equalizer that gave them the opportunity to reach the quarter-finals for the first time in the club’s history.
Another strong away effort last Wednesday ended in disappointment for the Santa Fe club, who have not won in 13 consecutive away games.
That was the third time Sabale had failed to hold a 1-0 lead in this tournament as they sat out and were guilty of being too accommodating, which ultimately came back to bite them.
Colón has shown some consistency since mid-June, although not the kind that manager Julius Caesar Falcioni will want to see
They have scored a goal or less in six consecutive games in all competitions, with just one win in their previous nine games.
His wait-and-see approach puts a lot of pressure on his attacking players, as Sabalero traditionally possesses the ball for short periods during a 90-minute match, without registering many shots on goal.
On the other hand, for a team that doesn’t create many scoring chances, they do a great job of closing those dangerous spaces in their third of the pitch, conceding a goal or fewer in each of their last six games.
Although none of his current players were present when they reached the quarterfinals of this tournament 24 years ago, Colón has shown in recent times that he can handle the pressure of a one-game matchup.
In 2021 they defeated Talleres 5-3 on penalties in the Professional League Cup Quarterfinals, before eliminating Independiente (2-0) and Racing (3-0) to win their first trophy since 1965 .
For a club that was essentially venturing into the unknown a week ago, Talleres handled himself quite well, chaining more than twice as many passes as Colon and with 72% of the possession.
That may have been his first appearance at this stage of the competition, but his manager Peter Caixinha he has trained in much larger tournaments, though not always successfully.
During his days with Rangers, he failed to guide the Scottish giants past the first qualifying round of the 2017-18 Europa League, losing to Luxembourg’s Progres Niederkorn, 2-1 on aggregate.
Caixinha, who became the first Portugal manager to manage an Argentina team when he was appointed in March, was on the wrong side of history in Scotland, becoming the shortest-tenured manager in history to coach the famed Portugal team. Glasgow, where was he? fired after 229 days on the job.
While his domestic results have been mixed since taking over, Tallarin has shown he can compete with some of South America’s most experienced clubs.
In the group stage of this tournament they achieved a draw against Flamengo, runner-up of the Libertadores 2021 (2-2), losing only one of their seven games in this competition.
Unlike their first six group games, where Talleres scored first four times, combined with a 0-0 draw, they have been forced to react much more in recent outings, conceding the first goal six times last month but coming back to win. three. raffles.

We say: Colón 1-1 Talleres (Talleres advances on penalties)
There is little to choose between these two full-backs, who don’t allow much in the attacking third, nor do they create many clear chances.
We’re picking Garages to move up as they’re essentially playing for house money and weren’t expected to go that far, and that should allow them to play a bit looser in what should be a close game.
