Universitario have three players on the Team of the Week after their impressive win against Sporting Cristal to make it five wins in their last six games. After a rough year for Alberto Rodriguez, he put in a stellar performance against Cristal and was arguably the man of the match. Javier Nuñez, who ran circles around the Cerveceros defence, also made the XI.
Aldo Corzo, like el Mudo, has also had a rough year, but was excellent in midweek. Some fans will feel relieved after a run of poor form and pleased that he is back in the Peru squad.
Ayacucho, not for the first time, have three players in the team. With no outstanding left-back, Anthony Rosell makes it almost by default, as he had a good performance, but nothing outstanding. Mauricio Montes was the main man from their 3-2 win over Sport Boys with two goals.
Emanuel Biancucchi put in another top performance on the right side for Melgar and Joel Sánchez is really beginning to find his feet after a slow start.
