Team News: Cerro
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just a single fitness concern for the Cerro manager Gustavo Ferreyra to be concerned about thanks to an almost full-strength set of players. Mauro Estol (Muscle injury) misses out. Martín Gianoli will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Team News: Liverpool FC
Owing to a completely injury-free squad available to select from, the Liverpool FC boss Jorge Bava has zero fitness concerns to speak of coming into this game.
Here, we’re thinking that Cerro will really need to work well to get anything against this Liverpool FC team who we reckon should score at least once to put them ahead.
That’s why our selection here is for a very even contest with a 0-1 win for Liverpool FC when the full-time whistle blows.
It should be a good one.
