Our Montevideo City Torque v Cerro predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below (including the best match odds).
Montevideo City Torque
Montevideo City Torque will play in this match after a 2-2 Intermediate Round drawn game against Liverpool FC.
It’s not been often in recent games that Montevideo City Torque haven’t conceded. The facts show that Celeste have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 10 goals along the way.
Since a loss in their previous game against Plaza Colonia in Intermediate Round action, Cerro will be aiming to make amends here.
The stats tell the story, and Cerro have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 11 goals in total. In defence, Villeros have not been doing too well. That pattern won’t necessarily follow through here, though.
Team News: Montevideo City Torque
Regarding absentees, there’s just the lone fitness concern for the Montevideo City Torque manager Pablo Marini to contend with from a near full-strength set of players. Nicolás Digiano (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t play. Álvaro Brun cannot play in this game through suspension.
Team News: Cerro
Thanks to a mainly healthy group of players, there is only a single fitness issue for the Cerro manager Nathaniel Revetria to contend with. Luca Núñez (Head Injury) misses out for this game. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Enrique Etcheverry and Tomás Fernández.
In this match, Cerro should get enough chances to score a goal against this Montevideo City Torque lineup, but that may not quite be enough to avoid a loss.
We can see a close game with a 2-1 winning score for Montevideo City Torque at the end of the match. It’s a very tough call.
