Sporting Cristal vs U. San Martin (Peru Liga 1)


Sporting Cristal has finished their season as third-placed in Copa Libertadores. It means they will compete in the next phase of Copa Sudamericana, but it also means Sporting Cristal can focus on the domestic league right now. They need to win all of their remaining five games and to hope that current leaders Binacional will slip somewhere. At home field, Sporting has a 12:3 goal difference and a 5-1-0 record in 6 games so far. After the recent win in Uruguay, the atmosphere got way better in the dressing room. San Martin arrives here as a 14th placed team, the second worst visitor (0-2-4) of the league with just two goals scored in six games (2:12). Also, San Martin got enormous squad problems before this game as seven regular players will miss the game. Goalkeeper Penny(10/0), defender Salas(10/0) and attacker Olivera(11/3) are injured for visitors. Defender Portales(9/1), midfielder Oliva(11/2), Palacios(11/1) and attacker Espinoza(7/0) are loaned by Sporting Cristal and are restricted by FA to play against own team. Those are a big loses as 7 of the total 10 team goals have been scored among the missing players.
