The reliability and consistency of the Caracas attack will have another test before the crucial clash against The Strongest in the Copa Libertadores, on matchday 12 of the Futve League, in which Francesco Stifano's reds will seek a victory against Mineros de Guayana at the stadium Olympic that catapults them to the top of the classification table.
With an eye on next Tuesday's match against the Altiplano team, which they need to beat to continue fighting to advance to the round of XNUMX of the South American club tournament, Stifano's team has an opportunity to consolidate the offensive trident made up of the African duo of Samson Akinyoola and Bonsu Osei, and the promising Saúl Guarirapa.
In his false nine position, in which he seeks to team up in midfield with Bryan Ortega to initiate offensive projections, serve as a hook to attract rivals and create space for Osei and Guarirapa to appear on the flanks, Akinyoola has assumed the role of organizer and finisher of the Caracas attack, which has reduced their chances of converting.

Fine-tuning the movements of that trident without sacrificing the virtues of any of the members, especially Guarirapa, who in his role as playmaker on the left is separated from his natural habitat in the heart of the area where he usually does the most damage, is one of the priorities of Stifano to reach the clash against The Strongest with all the pieces adjusted and in complete synchrony to execute the movements.
The victory over Mineros will serve to increase the endorphins, the confidence of the team and maintain the undefeated this season in which they have four wins and the same number of draws, including the goalless match against Athletico Paranaense and the 1-0 victory over Libertad in the Libertadores Cup.
The three points against the Guayanese will also be useful to climb positions and settle among the top five in the tournament.
