Team News: Liverpool FC
There is just the lone fitness concern for the Liverpool FC boss to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed set of players. Federico Pereira (Cruciate Ligament Injury) misses out.
Team News: Peñarol
Peñarol boss Diego Forlan has multiple availability issues to deal with. Martín Correa (Muscle Injury), Nicolás Schiappacasse (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Cristian Olivera (Gastric problems) are names that won’t be on the team sheet. Ezequiel Busquets will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
In our view, Peñarol and Liverpool FC could well end up finding themselves level here, with both teams capable of netting.
It could well end in a draw. That’s why our selection here is for a very close game with a 1-1 scoreline when the full-time whistle blows.
