Cerrito will be looking to improve on their last outing here after a 3-1 Primera Division defeat in their last game at the hands of Peñarol.
It’s been a rare occasion in recent times where Cerrito have kept a clean sheet. The reality is that Cerrito have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 matches, leaking 16 goals in the process. That kind of trend won’t necessarily follow through into this game, however.

Team News: Cerrito
The Cerrito boss will be grateful to have no fitness concerns at all ahead of this game owing to a fully injury-free squad available to select from.
Team News: Defensor Sporting
Thanks to a largely available group of players, there’s just a single fitness issue for the Defensor Sporting boss Ignacio Risso to be concerned with. Diego Abreu (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be in action.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Cerrito should be able to find the net against this Defensor Sporting outfit, however a single goal probably shouldn’t be as many as they’ll concede.
We therefore reckon that it will be a 1-2 win for Defensor Sporting when the full-time whistle blows. Could easily go either way, this.
