Cerro Largo will be hoping for a better result following the 1-3 Primera Division losing effort in their last game against Montevideo Wanderers.
At least three goals per game were recorded in 5 of the past 6 meetings where Cerro Largo have participated. Opposing sides scored 12 times in this period whereas Cerro Largo managed to get a total of 6. Such a pattern won’t necessarily be continued into this match, however.
Peñarol go into this clash following a 0-1 Primera Division win as they beat Rentistas in their most recent game.
A succession of resolute displays by the Peñarol defence has seen their ‘goals against’ tally standing at 4 from their previous 6 outings in total. In that period, their own forwards have managed to score 6.
Team News: Cerro Largo
Cerro Largo manager Danielo Núñez has no fitness worries at all before this match owing to a completely healthy squad available to select from.
Team News: Peñarol
Peñarol manager Diego Forlan has some current player fitness concerns. Jonathan Urretaviscaya (Knee Problems), Fabián Estoyanoff (Muscle Injury), Denis Olivera (Muscle Injury), Hernán Petryk (Achilles tendon surgery), Ariel Nahuelpán (Muscle Injury) and David Terans (Muscle Injury) are not able to play.
We believe that Cerro Largo could well find it tough to be putting a goal past this Peñarol side who we reckon should manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
We’re therefore predicting a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 0-1 winning score for Peñarol after 90 minutes.
Expecting it to be tight.
