Universitario de Deportes will welcome Barcelona SC to the Estadio Monumental for the second leg of their Copa Libertadores second round match on Wednesday.

The visitors currently hold the advantage in the tie, having secured a 2-0 victory in the first leg in Ecuador last week. Erick Castillo and Carlos Garces stepped off the bench to guide Los idolo del Ecuador to victory.

They followed that up with a narrow 1-0 home win over Tecnico Universitario in the Ecuadorian Liga Pro over the weekend. Gonzalo Mastriani stepped off the bench to score the winning goal in the second minute of injury time.

Universitario de Deportes got back to winning ways in the Peruvian Liga 1 with a comfortable home victory over Cesar Vallejo. Nelinho Quina wrapped up the scoring with his second-half goal.

A similar result for El Cuadro Estudiantil will take them through to the next round of the qualifiers to face either America Mineiro or Guarani for a place in the group stage.

Universitario vs Barcelona Prediction

Universidad need three unreplied goals to secure progress to the next round and, despite having home advantage, they have their work cut out against an in-form Barcelona SC.

The visitors are unlikely to sit deep to protect their lead and could push forward to get on the scoresheet to further give them an advantage. We are predicting a share of the spoils in a low-scoring draw.

Prediction: Universitario 1-1 Barcelona SC
