More than three hours before the start of the match between Universitario and Sport Huancayo for the last day of the Clausura 2023 Tournament, dozens of fans are already queuing to secure a good position inside the stands of the Monumental de Ate stadium.
Universitario vs Sport Huancayo: The day has arrived! Today, Sunday, October 29, the 26-time Peruvian soccer champion will receive the ‘rojo matador’ at the Monumental stadium in search of a victory that will give them the label of winner of the 2023 Clausura Tournament. The contest corresponding to the last date of the second The League 1 competition will begin at 3:00 p.m. in Peru, simultaneously with five other matches. Impossible to miss it!
How University arrives
Universitario de Deportes is playing its most important match so far this campaign today. He will do it at his venue in front of more than 60 thousand spectators. If you win, you will become the winner of the 2023 Clausura Tournament and will enter the national final against Alianza Lima, in addition to qualifying for the group stage of the 2024 Copa Libertadores.
There is no shortage of reasons to believe that Odriozola’s men will achieve their goal, since they have accumulated eight matches without losing, with four victories in between. Another reason that generates expectations in those led by Jorge Fossati is that since the veteran Uruguayan strategist took office, he has won 13 of his 14 home games at the Monumental stadium domestically, only losing a draw with Deportivo Garcilaso by 1- 1.
Although the ‘U’ (36 points) depends on itself, if it obtains a tie it will depend on Melgar (35) not defeating Binacional in Juliaca and Alianza Lima (34) not beating Deportivo Garcilaso by eight goals in Cuso . In case of defeat, if the ‘red and black’ tie they will surpass it by goal difference and goals in favor, on the other hand, they will have to wait that the ‘blue and white’ do not win and that Sporting Cristal or ADT (both with 33) do not surpass by three and nine goals, respectively, to Alianza Atlético and Carlos Mannucci. There’s no margin of error.
For this challenge, the ‘creams’ have no suspensions or injuries. The only doubt is a possible substitution of forward Alex Valera, since he has four yellow cards and if he receives the fifth against Huancayo he would miss the first leg of an eventual national final. ‘Cholo’ has just scored the goal that allowed him to tie against Cusco FC.
How Sport Huancayo arrives
Sport Huancayo will close its football season facing the ‘U’, but without an objective in between, since they already secured their participation in a continental competition in 2024 last week after defeating Sport Boys 1-0.
The ‘red matador’ will play the first phase of the Copa Sudamericana next year and can no longer climb positions in the Accumulated Table, so his visit to Lima will be purely for sporting honor and the possibility of ruining the University party in his home. Their own coach, Wilmar Valencia, indicated that their “dignity” will be at stake and some elements of the squad have a final opportunity to achieve a renewal or agreement with another team.
It is worth mentioning that so far in League 1 2023, Sport Huancayo achieved three victories as a visitor, these being against Melgar, Deportivo Municipal and César Vallejo. He also obtained three units for a walk over that Cusco FC received when he did not appear due to television rights conflicts. In his outings to Lima, beyond defeating ‘Muni’, he fell with Sport Boys, Alianza Lima and Sporting Cristal. They obtained a tie with Academia Cantolao.

He will be accompanied by Jesús Sánchez and Albert Alarcón as lines, Alejandro Villanueva will complete the shortlist as the fourth man.
