The hosts lost 0-1 in the first leg in Ecuador (Independiente del Valle – Estudiantes de La Plata 1-0 on 05.02.2015), but this match was played in Quito at 2800 meters altitude, while now the Red-Whites are back at “Estadio Ciudad de La Plata”, where Estudiantes de La Plata won ten of its previous fourteen games in the South American club tournaments (10-2-2 23-10).
This is debut season for Independiente del Valle in Copa Libertadores, which is another disadvantage for the visitors, together with the fact, that their overall potential is lower, compared with the potential of their opponents.
The hosts may have some problems against a team with good defense like Independiente del Valle, but ultimately I expect that Estudiantes de La Plata will advance in the next stage of the tournament.
