Team News: Cerro Largo
Santiago Merlo (Corona virus), Mauro Brasil (Corona virus) and Gonzalo Lamardo (Fractured Foot) will not be taking part for Cerro Largo gaffer Danielo Núñez. Facundo Rodríguez will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Team News: River Plate
In an otherwise full-strength group, there’s just the sole fitness problem for the River Plate manager Jorge Fossati to be concerned about. Facundo Vigo (Ruptured ligaments) won’t be in action.
Our thinking is that River Plate have the capability to score against this Cerro Largo team, however that possibly won’t quite be as many as they will have scored against them.
We reckon that it will be a close game with a 2-1 winning score for Cerro Largo at the end of the match. Looking forward to seeing how this one unfolds.
