Independiente del Valle and Liverpool bring their Copa Libertadores group-stage campaign to an end when they square off at the Complejo Independiente del Valle on Thursday. Both sides are currently level on four points in the bottom half of the table and will be looking to secure the Copa Sudamericana spot.

Independiente del Valle maintained their lead at the top of the Ecuadorian top-flight table as they picked up a deserved 1-0 victory over Macará last weekend.

Javier Marcelo Gandolfi’s men have enjoyed an unbeaten domestic campaign, claiming nine wins and five draws in their 14 matches to sit one point above second-placed Barcelona.

However, Independiente have struggled to get going in the Copa Libertadores, where they are on a three-match losing streak and have picked up just four points from their five matches.

Liverpool have also picked up four points from their five Copa Libertadores matches to sit rooted to the bottom of Group F, only below Thursday’s hosts on goal difference.

Emiliano Alfaro’s men head into the midweek clash off the back of a 2-1 loss against Rampla in the Uruguayan Primera Division, where they are currently sixth in the table with 18 points from 14 matches.

While Liverpool will be looking to secure the all-important win on Thursday, they have lost three and managed just one victory in their last four games on the road across all competitions.
