Bolivia's Oriente to meet Uruguay's Nacional in Libertadores Cup qualifier

English.news.cn   2014-02-04 07:35:31

LA PAZ, Feb. 3 (Xinhua) -- Bolivian football team Oriente Petrolero traveled Monday to the Uruguayan capital Montevideo, where it is set to play against Uruguayan team Nacional Tuesday in a group phase match of the Libertadores Cup.

Dorian Montero, manager of the Bolivian club, said his players were coming into the match motivated by their earlier 1-0 home victory over Nacional during the first phase of the Cup games.

Montero said three of his players, Juan Quero, Alcides Pena and Alejandro Melean, who had been out due to injuries, will now be able to play in the match.

Oriente Petrolero held its final training session before the match on Sunday and on Monday night is expected to familiarize itself with the venue -- Montevideo's Parque Central Stadium for Tuesday's game.

Before traveling to Montevideo, team coach Tabare Silva could not confirm the lineup, saying he wasn't sure Pena, one of the best forwards, will be included.

"He has trained normally but we will have to wait until the last moment to see if we include him, because we need players who have been playing on a regular basis," said Silva.

Silva added the team was in good spirits and expected to do well.
