It's obvious that Boca is the favorite to go through in this group, despite this Boca version not being as good as last year's, let alone anywhere near as good as two years when they were simply excellent.

Boca still has some excellent players like Riquelme (the current SA player of the year), Serna, Delgado etc. just that will make them favorites. I believe they'll go through but it will be tougher than expected especially since Bianchi has left. FIRST

Santiago Wanderers: The chilean champions are basically new to this competition, their leading scorer is gone and the coach that put together the winning side is also gone. They will still compete for a spot in the second round but lack of experience will make them come up short. THIRD

Emelec: The ecuadorian champions are a really young team (average 23 years) but they are very experienced in international competiton. With 5 NT players, Merconorte Final and second round Libertadores experience from last year IMO they have a good shot at going through. SECOND

Montevideo Wanderers: Another internationally inexperiece team. They have put a lot effort in putting together a decent team. Unfortunately the coach that got them to the Libertadores is also gone. FOURTH

Boca all the way. Not much to say.

Look for Merconorte runner-ups Emelec to be fighting for 2nd place. I don't see too much "wondering" around

Montevideo Wanderers qualified for this tournament on pure grit, and that will be thier only hope considering they lost best players, since the end of the season.

Boca all the way, couldn't predict the rest.

Boca coach Taberez has asked his club to buy Dario Rodrigues from Penarol, he would even further Boca's lock in group.

Actually.....Their leading scorer the Uruguayan Fernandez NEVER did sign in Mexico and came back to Stgo Wanderers together now with Dwight Pessarozzi, also signed in the off season...A great tandem of strikers....Also bear in mind that Dabrowski, their new Coach, played several seasons with ColoColo in the years of Libertadores, and was a pivotal player to the 1991 Campaign in which ColoColo attained the Cup.....So...those are the renewed hopes for the Porteños, even though they have ZERO Libertadores xperience I placed themsecond as the Team is actually improved since they won the Chilean Championship a month or so ago !! :)

colocolo I don't disagree that Santiago Wanderers is a good team and maybe even better now. But Emelec is also pretty good they also just won the ecuadorian championship about a month ago. They got to the merconorte final which on the way there they eliminated the Mexican Champs. To add to this in last Libertadores Cup with basically the same team they got to the second round, on the way there they eliminated Olimpia and Sporting Cristal and beat Cruzeiro and River at home. So you see at this point I have to give them the edge over Santiago Wanderers, mainly because it's the same young core players of the last couple of years.:)

Emelec are performing at all cylinders. They started they're ecuadorian championship campaign today with a 6-0 demolition of Deportivo Cuenca. Watch out for these guys I got the feeling they will go far this year in the Libertadores Cup.:D

My only concern here would be...Do they have a DEEP bench ??? Like the Argentinians and or Brazilians ??? Because that WILL decide how good they do in 2 championships being played almost 2wice a week....Without GOOD reserves you're doomed in the Libertadores as well as the Champions League...In South America the Brazilians and Argentinians ARE the only ones with great fresh players in the bench that can change the outcome of a game just like that..

:cool:

Emelec minus two starters against Montevideo Wanderers

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

by Danny Bueno
6 February 2002 (TEAMtalk) -- Emelec will be without Otelino Tenorio and Luis Moreira when they open their Libertadores campaign against Montevideo Wanderers on Wednesday.

Ecuadorian champions Emelec will look to continue their recent success when they kick-off their Copa Libertadores campaign away to Uruguay’s Montevideo Wanderers.

The Group Six match is set for 6:30 p.m. local time in Wanderers’ Estadio Luis Franzini. Emelec and Wanderers are joined in Group Six by Santiago Wanderers and Argentina’s Boca Juniors.

Emelec began the 2002 season with a bang after thrashing Deportivo Cuenca 6-0 in the Ecuadorian league opener on the weekend.

Wanderers also began their league run with a shutout, 1-0 over Villa Espanola.

Emelec’s Argentine striker Carlos Alberto Juarez will be looked on to provide the offensive fireworks for Carlos Sevilla’s side. Juarez led the Ecuadorian league in goals scored last year, finding the back of the net 17 times.

Midfielders Moises Candelario and Luis Arango will orchestrate the Emelec attack. Both scored goals in Emelec’s league opener.

Sevilla, however, will have to do without the services of Tenorio and Moreira. Tenorio, the top goalscorer of the Copa Merconorte, is recovering from surgery, and Moreira stayed in Ecuador with an injury. Moreira netted two goals for Emelec and was injured in their win over Cuenca.

Wanderers’ coach Santiago Ostolaza will field the same starting 11 that defeated Villa Espanola. Not expected to start is striker Jorge Martinez, who scored the lone goal as a substitute in Wanderers’ win over the weekend.

Ostolaza is wary of his Ecuadorian rivals.

“Emelec are the champions of Ecuador, a country that reached the World Cup,” Ostolaza said. “We have to be careful with Juarez and the Colombian Arango.”

Wanderers are hoping to have a better run in 2002 than they did last year. They finished the Uruguayan Clausura season in a dismal sixth place with only 12 points in nine matches. They qualified for the Libertadores on the last day of the pre-Libertadores tournament by defeating Danubio 3-0.

Probable line-ups:

Emelec: Daniel Viteri; Carlos Quiñónez, Luis Zambrano, Augusto Porozo, David Vilela; Richard Borja, Carlos Hidalgo, Moisés Candelario, Luis Arango; Moisés Cuero, Carlos Juárez.

Wanderers: Mauricio Nanni; José Herrera, Julio Ramírez, Juan Carlos Lago, Ronald Ramírez; Sebastián Eguren, Fernando Fadeuille, Claudio Dadomo, Alejandro Larrea; Julio De Souza, Sergio Blanco

Montevideo Wanderers - Emelec

It should be a very fast and entertaining game between 2 young teams. Despite the "bohemios" home field advantage I like the "electricos" chances of getting at least a point in their visit to Montevideo.
