Team News: Montevideo City Torque
The Montevideo City Torque boss Lucas Nardi does not have any fitness worries whatsoever coming into this clash thanks to a fully healthy group ready to go.
Team News: Cerro
Owing to an otherwise full-strength squad, there’s only the lone fitness problem for the Cerro manager Gustavo Ferreyra to be concerned about. Nicolás González (Cruciate ligament tear) won’t be playing here. Martín Gianoli will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We’re inclined to think that Cerro could find themselves up against it to get anything against this Montevideo City Torque lineup who we think will emerge victorious.
We’re therefore predicting a very even match with a 1-0 winning margin for Montevideo City Torque at the end of this one.
