The La Florida team, on the other hand, would still not have its captain Yoshimar Yotún, who despite overcoming an injury, would not travel to Cusco. This is because the coach plans to save it for his debut in the preliminary phase of the Copa Libertadores (February 20). He doesn’t want to risk it at altitude. Of course, before that they will play with Chankas in Lima (February 15).
