Its no longer Alianza which Peruvian club has the worst

It’s no longer Alianza: which Peruvian club has the worst recent streak without winning at Libertadores?

For Alianza Lima fans, the long wait is over. Last Thursday, April 20, the intimate club ended a 30-game winless streak in the Copa Libertadores by beating Libertad de Paraguay 2-1 as visitors. This triumph marks the return of the blue and white team to victory in continental competition after more than 11 years in which they not only surpassed the negative mark of other teams from abroad, but also a team from League 1.

After this ‘anti-record’ was forgotten, the cast of ‘Chicho’ Salas delegated to sports guys the heavy burden of being the Peruvian team with the worst running record of the moment without being able to claim a win in the biggest continental competition for conmebol clubs.

To date, the Missilera accumulates a total of 16 consecutive games without being able to add three in the competition. This losing streak began on day 3 of the 1991 Copa Libertadores, when they drew 2-2 with Atlético Colegiales of Paraguay and then lost the three remaining duels. After that, his unbeaten negative was extended to the group stages of the 1992 and 2001 cup editions (twelve more games).

Given the pink team’s current status, breaking that lousy record is seen as an unlikely mission, at least in the short term, having not qualified for the competition for more than 20 years. His return to international level came only in 2022, when he entered the national stage of the Copa Sudamericana (in which he won a game but failed to make it into the group zone).
