El líder Metropolitans want to extend their dominance in Futve

The violets lead the standings with 28 points

In the match that will raise the curtain on the sixteenth day of the Futve League, Metropolitanos FC will try to extend its dominance at the top of the Futve League standings, in the visit that will take place this Thursday (5:00 pm) to a needy Deportivo Lara, at the Farid Richa stadium in Barquisimento.

The violets arrive at the "Musical Capital" as the eleventh in the best form of the Venezuelan championship, after taking first place with 28 points, thanks to the 3-1 victory over the Larenses last date, which marked the end of the first half of the eliminatory round that will be played in two rounds.

In that match, the goals of those led by José María Morr came thanks to the interventions of Irwin Antón, Walter Araujo and Robinson Flores, while Johan Arrieche placed the discount for a red and black eleven that lives low hours and is located dangerously in the 14th place with 16 points.

Táchira goes for revenge in Pueblo Nuevo

In another commitment, the current champion of the Venezuelan tournament, Deportivo Táchira, will seek revenge for the defeat suffered by the minimum difference 1-0 against Aragua FC, in the battle that will take place on the lawn of the Pueblo Nuevo Sports Center in San Cristóbal, starting from 7:15 p.m.

The "Carrousel aurinegro" wants to leave behind the surprising result, in which the defender Roger Manríque was the protagonist at the Hermanos Ghersi stadium in Maracay, with a bombshell from the edge of the area that was enough to give the victory to the aurirojos.

For this reason, those commanded on the bench by the Spanish Alexandre Pallarés will have to adjust their pieces and return to the good game shown at the beginning of the campaign, despite having the well-known loss of the winger Yerson Chacón due to the fact that he is wearing the shirt national at the Maurice Revello International Tournament.

However, the Andeans have the necessary tools to replace the talented footballer, although beyond the attacking front, the team will have to place greater emphasis on a defensive zone that may include the debut of Panamanian central defender Azmahar Ariano, who arrived from Monagas SC after seeing action in six games and recording a goal scored.

As far as the table is concerned, Táchira is in fifth place with 23 points, against an Aragua that caught oxygen in the fight to get out of the last places and climbed to ninth place with 18 units.
