Students start the series of eighths of the Libertadores against Fortaleza in Brazil

Students will begin their dream in search of the fifth Copa Libertadores.

Students from La Plata will visit Fortaleza this Thursday in Brazil, a team led by the Argentine Juan Pablo Vojvoda, for the first leg of the round of 16 of the Copa Libertadores de América.

The match will be played from 9:30 p.m. at the Arena Castelao stadium, with arbitration by Uruguayan Andrés Matonte and will be televised by Fox Sports.

The rematch will be next Thursday at the UNO stadium in La Plata and whoever passes will face Emelec from Ecuador or Atlético Mineiro from Brazil in the quarterfinals, who tied 1-1 in the first leg in Guayaquil.

The “Pincha” will start his dream in search of the fifth Copa Libertadores at an uncomfortable moment due to the significant casualties of Gustavo Del Prete (transferred to Mexican soccer) and Matías Pellegrini (returned to Inter Miami) and also due to recent defeats.

To face the second stage of 2022, Estudiantes added six reinforcements: Luciano Lollo, Benjamín Rollheiser, Mateo Pellegrino, Leonardo Heredia, Eros Mancuso and Pablo Piatti.

Fortaleza, meanwhile, entered the top 16 teams in South America in its first appearance after finishing second in the group headed by River Plate.

The team led by Juan Pablo Vojvoda achieved the agonizing classification after a great 4-3 victory against Colo Colo in Santiago de Chile.

Fortaleza, which has the Argentines Silvio Romero and Valentín Depietri, is last in the Brazilian championship with 10 points in 14 games, but due to the expectation of playing for the first time in the round of 16 of the Cup, a full stadium is expected.
