Team News: Peñarol
Yonatthan Rak (Muscle injury), Camilo Mayada (Knee problems), Maximiliano Olivera (Muscle injury) and Abel Hernández (Torn muscle bundle) won’t be playing for Peñarol manager Alfredo Arias.
Team News: Cerro Largo
In an otherwise full-strength group of players, there’s just the one fitness worry for the Cerro Largo manager Eduardo Espinel to be concerned about. Mauro Estol (Muscle injury) won’t be playing here. Martín Gianoli is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
When taking all factors into account, Peñarol will probably dominate possession and create several successful chances.
At the other end, Cerro Largo may well find it hard to get shooting opportunities although we do think that they will probably end up hitting back at some stage, too.
Accordingly, we see a 3-1 win for Peñarol at full-time.
