The Olympic stadium is dyed purple this Thursday when Metropolitanos receives Internacional at 8:00 pm at the start of the second round of the Copa Libertadores.
It will be a historic night for the capital team as they will go looking for their first three points in this tournament, where they are making their debut after eleven years of experience in the Futve League.
However, to experience an epic night they will have to achieve the almost inaccessible feat for Venezuelan teams of defeating a Brazilian club, which has been the case since Caracas beat Gremio 2-1 in 2013.
For the purple players this will not be an excuse not to leave everything on the field. Rather they are motivated to play the best game of their careers.
Qualifying for a second phase, either in this cup or in the South American Cup, is more than enough motivation to leave your soul on the pitch at the Los Chaguaramos venue.
Although they are last in group F, there is still an opportunity to stay alive in the competition, but everything will depend on their performance in this match, in which they must be one hundred percent concentrated if they do not want to lose another game in the final minutes. .
Metropolitans with a better present
