Our Top Palmeiras vs Cerro Porteno Prediction and Betting Tips

Palmeiras to Score First in 1st

The Brazilian side has been the first to score in 4 of their last 5 matches, including in their last matchday defeat, in which they took the lead in the 16th minute. The away side has also been the first to score in their last matches, but you have to bear in mind that the teams they usually face in the Paraguayan league are of a slightly lower standard. So our Palmeiras vs Cerro Porteno prediction is that the host will open the scoring in the first half.

Over 2.5 Goals

We expect to see three or even more goals in this duel, as both teams have a good goal average. In fact, in eight of the Paraguayan team’s last nine matches, there have been more than 2.5 goals, as well as in the Brazilian team’s last five matches.

BTTS

The odds of these teams putting volume in the net are high, good offensively, they tend to make some mistakes in defence which prohibits them from keeping a clean sheet. On matchday one both teams played duels where we saw BTTS, so we expect this factor to be repeated again between both Palmeiras vs Cerro Porteno line ups.

Useful Palmeiras vs Cerro Porteno Review

Palmeiras

The Brazilian team struggled in their first match against Bolivar. The Big Green’s players struggled to adapt to the altitude of La Paz. The first few minutes were under Palmeiras’ control, in fact, it was the Brazilians who opened the scoring after 13 minutes. This lead did not last long as Bolivar equalised in the 20th minute and took the lead with another goal in the 45th minute. In the second half the outcome was similar and Bolivar scored another goal to seal the match.

Cerro Porteno

The Paraguayan team had a great victory at home, where they faced Barcelona Guayaquil. The team coached by Facundo Sava took the lead with a penalty goal scored by Claudio Aquino. Barcelona equalised in the 70th minute, but Cerro Porteno took the lead again with a goal by Diego Churin. The Paraguayan team needs a good result to stay at the top of the group.
