Cuiaba host Racing Club at the Arena Pantanal for a clash in Group B of the 2022 Copa Sudamericana on Tuesday.

With just three points from as many games so far, the Dourado face a must-win game in their bid to qualify for the round of 16.

They started off the campaign with a 2-0 defeat of Melgar following which the Brazilian side were beaten by Racing and River Plate.

Racing are trailing Melgar on goal difference in the race to qualify for the last-16 round of the tournament.

Both sides have accumulated six points each, but the latter currently hold the initiative at the top of the group.

La Academia cannot afford to drop points either and must win by a big margin to claim pole position.
