Match preview

2021 Copa Libertadores, Cerro Porteno will play against with Fluminense RJ home. Fluminense have made a relatively mixed start to their Brasileiro campaign, having won four, drawn five and lost two of their opening 11 matches. Roger Machado's men did beat Sport Recife on Saturday to climb into seventh in the division, however, while at the same time building some momentum ahead of this continental clash. Fluminense were equally inconsistent in the Libertadores group stage, but victories in half of their six matches proved enough to see them finish above River Plate in top spot. They will now take on Paraguayan side Cerro Porteno over two legs, with the winner to face either Velez Sarsfield or Ecuadorian outfit Barcelona in the quarter-finals. Cerro have not played a competitive game since losing 2-0 to Club Guarani at the end of May - their third defeat in four matches in all competitions. That is due to the Paraguay Premier League reaching its midway point, with El Ciclon finishing fourth. The 'Torneo Clausura' campaign will begin on July 16.

Head coach Francisco Arce's focus will not be on the league clash with Sportivo Luqueno, though, but rather this double-header with high-profile opposition Fluminense either side. Cerro lost home and away to another Brazilian opponent in Atletico Mineiro in the group stage, yet a couple of wins in their final three games helped them claim second place. Arce's side have never previously won a continental competition, though they did reach the Libertadores semi-finals in 1973, 1978, 1993, 1998, 1999 and 2011.


Cerro Porteno possible starting lineup:
Fernandes; Espinola, Duartes, Delvalle, Alan; Gimenez, Carrascal, Villasanti, Aquino; Morales; Boselli

Fluminense possible starting lineup:
Muriel; Calegari, Manoel, Braz, Barcelos; Martinelli, Wellington; Henrique, Ganso, Nene; Cazares
