Racing Club host Rentistas at the Estadio Presidente Perón in Copa Libertadores Group E action on Tuesday.

The hosts have already secured passage into the next round and will likely end up as group winners. They are yet to lose a game in the competition and defeated Sao Paulo 1-0 in their previous outing.

Unlike the home team, Rentistas are winless in the competition after five games and have scored just two goals so far. They were defeated 2-0 by Sporting Cristal last week but returned to winning ways with a 2-1 win in the Uruguayan Primera Division against Boston River on Saturday.

Racing Club vs Rentistas Prediction

The clash between the top-seeded side and the bottom-placed team in Group E should be a routine win for the hosts. Racing Club may choose to rest key players for their Primera Division semi-final clash against Boca Juniors, which has been postponed until the first week of June.

We expect Racing Club to make quick work of Rentistas in this game.
