Team News: Montevideo City Torque
The Montevideo City Torque manager will be grateful not to have any fitness worries at all before this clash with a completely injury-free group available to choose from.
Team News: Liverpool FC
Thanks to a mainly full-strength group, there is just the sole fitness issue for the Liverpool FC gaffer to be concerned about. Santiago Romero (Muscular problems) misses out for this game.
Our feeling is that Montevideo City Torque will have to perform well to break down this Liverpool FC side who we think will score at least once to gain the upper hand.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a very even contest with a 0-1 victory for Liverpool FC at the conclusion of the game.
Will be interesting to see how this one goes.
