Chilean giants Universidad de Chile and last season’s Copa Libertadores winners Santos both struggled badly in the first leg away ties of the last 16. Both teams were playing away at clubs in the highest capital cities of the world: Bolivar in La Paz (Bolivia) and Deportivo Quito in Quito (Ecuador). Altitude is often a major factor in these Copa Libertadores ties.
