View all of the Cerro v Defensor Sporting predictions, poll and stats below - plus the latest betting odds.
Cerro enter this match following a 1-1 Primera Division tied result versus Liverpool FC.
Villeros have been conceding pretty frequently lately, but they have also managed to score goals themselves. Over their last 6 matches, Villeros have been punished defensively in 5 of them while also scoring in 6 of those matches.
Previously, Defensor Sporting drew 2-2 in the Primera Division match with Fénix.
Looking at their form, and Defensor Sporting have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing opposing sides hit 10 goals in all. In defence, El Tuerto have clearly had some problems. That sort of trend won’t necessarily be continued here, of course.
Team News: Cerro
There’s just a single fitness concern for the Cerro manager Nathaniel Revetria to be concerned with from a near full-strength set of players. Luca Núñez (Traffic Accident) is out of contention.
Team News: Defensor Sporting
Defensor SC boss Ignacio Risso has multiple availability issues to deal with. Tabaré Viúdez (Muscle Injury) and Gastón Álvarez (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be making appearances.
We’re of the view that Cerro might well have a job on their hands to find the net against this Defensor Sporting outfit who we think will likely score one, at least.
We’re therefore tipping a highly competitive game with a 0-1 winning margin for Defensor Sporting at the conclusion of the game.
Looking forward to watching this one unfold.
