Copa Libertadores 2021 Group Stage is coming to an end and América de Cali will face Deportivo La Guaira today in Bolivia in what will be their last opportunity to keep their hopes alive. The Colombian side faces a tough situation, while the visitors have better chances to fight for the second spot. However, the team from Cali is the big favorite to today's clash. Take a look at the match information, storylines, predictions, odds, and how to watch it in the US.
Los Diablos Rojos have been through difficult weeks, as they were knocked out of the domestic tournament and they find themselves on the verge of elimination in the continental contest. That's why they parted ways with Juan Cruz Real and Jerson González will be in charge of the team until the new coach, possibly Juan Carlos Osorio, is announced.
Meanwhile, Deportivo La Guaira have the chance of at least securing a Copa Sudamericana spot should they hold onto the third place of the group. The Venezuelan side has lost only once so far, but it didn't record any win. Will it claim its first three points in this clash?
