Valdivia vs Unión Espanyol for the Copa Chile round of 16 match on Thursday at El Parque Municipal Stadium.
Valdivia vs Unión Espanyol match with two teams that have not won in more than 12 games.
Thus, in this 2nd leg match of Copa of Chile, neither team is ahead. Whereas in the first game the result was a goalless draw between the clubs.
The winner of the match will face Audax Italiano in the quarterfinals of the competition.
Valdivia’s team have not won in 13 games, meaning a lousy phase hardly seen in football. Besides, the team is in the last place in the First B of Chile.
In fact, the team has both technical and team play at a deficient level. That is, we cannot expect a sudden improvement in the group.
Valdivia’s numbers can be even worse. So if we consider the last 19 games, the team has only one win.
It is impossible to highlight at this point at least one positive aspect of the team.
In a sequence of 12 games without wins, the Unión Espanyol seeks to rediscover their football to try to follow in the Cup of Chile.
In this case, the team must be able to overcome its shortcomings, especially in the creation of plays. After all, the number of shots of the team has been very low.
On the other hand, the signing of coach Ronald Fuentes last week could give the team a new form. With this fact, the coach will have a lot of work ahead, meaning results are unlikely to come quickly.
In the national championship, the team still managed to maintain the 10th position. However, this was only possible thanks to the good start of the tournament.
Obviously, we have two teams that are in a bad phase, but one of them is starting to be shaped by a new coach.
The technical level of the teams, however, is slightly different. While the Unión Espanyol plays the first division, Valdivia is in the last position of the second division.
This is a duel between two teams of shallow technical quality, and the result of 0x0 of the first game shows their limitations.
