Cusco FC vs Audax Italiano for the Conmebol Copa Sudamericana match on Friday at Melgar Stadium.
Cusco and Audax will face each other in the first leg of the first round of the Copa Sudamericana, which will be played in the city of Arequipa, in Peru.
It is a game in which the crosses and the distance shooting can be decisive because the height favors this type of situation.
It is only the second time that Cusco will play the Copa Sudamericana.
It does not play in its stadium because it does not meet the minimum conditions required by Conmebol for this type of game, which is why it will have to use the Melgar stadium.
Cusco has two Argentine strikers in the attack, and it is their great hope to achieve victory against Audax.
This game comes at a bad time for the team. It lost the two official games that played this 2020, both in the local league of Peru.
The team has only had two official games so far in 2020, but it has done very well so far. It beat Cobresal and Colo Colo, two of the strongest teams in Chile.
This is the third time it has played in the Copa Sudamericana and plan to spend several days in Peru before the game to prepare for the height.
For the history and the time in which they live, Audax seems to be the favorite to reach the victory in this first stage of the Copa Sudamericana.
The location does not seem to be a determining factor. Cusco is not playing in its city because its stadium was not prepared for this international match. Then, both will have to adjust to the height and to a stadium that is unusual for them.
