Cerro Porteno vs Palmeiras Lineups and Other News

Cerro Porteno

Since Cerro Porteno’s 4-0 defeat to Bolivar, the club has drawn their last two domestic matches. They blew a 2-1 lead over rivals Olimpia Asuncion who equalised in the 94th minute, before disappointing with a 1-1 draw away to Sporting Luqueno.

There’s likely to be changes to the starting XI which featured in the humiliating 4-0 Libertadores defeat to Bolivar, as midfielder Rafael Carrascal hasn’t played much since that game. Claudio Aquino who has scored five goals in 2023 will be their main threat down to the right channel.

Palmeiras

Palmeiras are currently on a 12 match unbeaten streak, which includes 11 victories. Abel Ferreira’s side are going great guns at the moment, and their captain Raphael Veiga has been at the heart of that. Having scored five goals since returning from injury in April, he’s been attracting plenty of attention in Europe.
