Copa Sudamericana Quarter Final 2nd Leg: River Plate vs Defensor Sporting

The second leg of the final remaining Copa Sudamericana quarter final will be played in Buenos Aires tonight, with Argentine side River Plate taking on the Uruguayan side Defensor Sporting.

The teams drew 2-2 in the first leg, which gives River Plate the luxury of just requiring a 0-0 or 1-1 draw to go through on the away goals rule. However, judging by River's recent defensive form, this is unlikely to occur.

Millionairos of Colombia await the winning team in the semi-finals.

The lineups are expected to be as follows:

River Plate: Juan Carrizo, Paulo Ferrari, Nicolas Sanchez, Eduardo Tuzzio, Leonardo Ponzio, Fernando Belluschi, Oscar Ahumada, Matias Abelairas, Ariel Ortega, Mauro Rosales, Radamel Falcao

Defensor Sporting: Martin Silva, Christian Gonzalez, Williams Martinez, Andres Lamas, Sebestian Ariosa, Julio Marchant, Pablo Gaglianone, Miguel Amado, Diego de Souza, Mauro Vila, Carlos Morales

Referee: Ricardo Grande
