Telleres de Cardoba and Flamengo face off on Wednesday

Telleres de Cardoba and Flamengo go head-to-head at the Estadio Mario Alberto Kempes in Group H of the Copa Libertadores on Wednesday.

The Rubro-Negro will head into the game looking to complete a group double over the hosts after claiming a 3-1 victory back in April’s reverse fixture.

Telleres de Cardoba failed to rise from the bottom of the Copa de la Liga table as they fell to a 3-0 defeat at Atletico Tacuman last Saturday.

They have now lost four of their last six games across all competitions, claiming wins over River Plate and Sporting Cristal in that time.

Telleres have now turned their attention to the Copa Libertadores, where they are second in Group H after picking up six points from a possible nine so far.

Meanwhile, reigning champions Flamengo have kicked off their title defense in style as they comfortably sit at the top of the group after winning each of their three games.

The Brazilian outfit made it two wins from two last time out as they saw off Altos in the Copa do Brasil.

Flamengo are unbeaten in eight of their last nine outings in all competitions, with a 1-0 loss to Athletico Paranaense on April 23 being the only exception.
