The Opening Tournament 2023 of the league 1 is getting closer to its end and this weekend the matchday 13 began to be played, which will have as its ‘highlight’ the match between University of Sports in view of Sporting Cristal. Commitment that will meet -this Monday, April 24 from 8:30 pm- at the Monumental stadium.
There have been several matches that both casts have played throughout history, but the last ten leave a clear advantage for those today led by the Brazilian Tiago Nunes over Jorge Fossati’s.
In this sense, the celestes have managed to keep three of the last ten matches against the creams, tying the other seven ‘modern classics’, which shows a slight superiority of the bajopontines in this type of encounter.
Even, in 2020, the ‘U’ and Cristal disputed the play offs to decide the national champion of that season. After two very even duels, it was the rimenses who ended up celebrating and lifting the trophy for that year.
Now, despite the fact that the ‘SC’ arrives beaten after losing to River for the Copa Libertadores, while the ‘merengues’ are in tune after getting an agonizing draw against Goiás that allows them to position themselves as the leader in the South American Cup, this match is projected to be of guarded prognosis.

university vs. crystal: novelties
For the clash against the creams, Tiago Nunes will send all his meat. Thus, he will line up Yoshimar Yotún in the starting eleven, but he is not the only player in mind, since there could be other surprises. It turns out that Leandro Sosa could also be there from the start. The Brazilian DT doesn’t dislike that idea, taking into account that the ‘U’ is a team that runs and puts in a lot.
The ‘U’, meanwhile, will also present casualties. In the match against Goiás it was an attempt and the Brazilian players entered each division strong. As a result, Piero Quispe suffered a blow to the knee and was unable to develop his game normally.
Another of those affected was Rodrigo Ureña, who was hit with everything on his ankle. While Luis Urruti was also treated harshly, which exacerbated his ailments. In that sense, Fossati would decide to give them a break so that they return to Sport Boys on the next date.
