Bolivia`s Bolivar travel to Mexico to play Leon
La Paz: Bolivian football team Bolivar travelled to Mexico, where they will play Leon Wednesday as part of the Libertadores Cup, coach Xabier Azkargorta said.
Bolivar are in good form not having lost a single game so far, but Azkargorta said it would still be a tough match, since the two rivals have played each other before and know each other`s strengths and weaknesses, reports Xinhua.
"We are going with the intention to do well, we have a good team, but we have to play two games to find out who qualifies for the quarterfinals," he told reporters gathered at the airport to see the team off Monday.
Azkargorta said Leon is probably the best team of the Libertadores Cup, and proved it by defeating Brazilian rivals Flamengo 3-2 in their hometown of Rio de Janeiro to advance to the quarterfinals.
