San Lorenzo v Nacional - Copa CONMEBOL Sudamericana 2018
San Lorenzo and Palestino square off in the Copa Sudamericana on Thursday

San Lorenzo and Palestino are back in action in the Copa Sudamericana when they face off at the Estadio Pedro Bidegain on Thursday.

The hosts will be looking to snap their three-match winless run in the group and keep their hopes of a place in the knockout stages alive.

San Lorenzo continued to struggle for results as they were held to a goalless draw by Colon in the Argentine top flight last Sunday.

Ruben Dario Insua’s men have now failed to win their last three matches, picking up one draw and losing twice, including a 3-2 defeat against Fortaleza in the Copa Sudamericana on May 24.

San Lorenzo return to the continental tournament, where they are currently third in Group H, three points behind Thursday’s visitors.

Elsewhere, Palestino picked up a huge result in their quest for a place in the knockout stages as they thrashed Estudiantes 5-1 last time out.

This followed a 1-0 loss against O'Higgins in the Chilean Primera Division on May 19 which saw their three-match unbeaten run come to an end.

After losing 4-0 against Estudiantes in their Group H opener on April 5, a run of seven points in their subsequent three matches has put Palestino back in contention for a place in the knockout stages.
