LDU Quito were involved in a share of the spoils for the second consecutive game as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Guayaquil City in the Ecuadorian top flight.

They have now turned their attention to the Copa Sudamericana, where they are currently on a four-game unbeaten run, picking up three wins and one draw since their group opener against Wednesday’s visitors back in April.

Needing all three points to progress to the next round, LDU Quito will be banking on their solid form on home turf, where they are yet to taste defeat this year, picking up eight wins and three draws since a 2-1 loss to Independiente back in October.

Atletico Goianiense, meanwhile, returned to winning ways in the Brasileiro Serie A as they saw off Coritiba 2-0 on home turf.

They have now turned their attention to the Copa Sudamericana, where they have won all but one of their five games so far, with April’s 2-1 defeat at Antofagasta being the only exception.

With 13 points from five games, Atletico Goianiense are currently top of the Group F standings, two points above second-placed LDU Quito.
