Penarol and Cerro Porteno to Draw

While Cerro Porteno is currently at the top of Group G with the same number of points as Colon, Penarol is at the bottom with three points, four points less than the top two teams in the group.

So, Penarol still has some chance of reaching the next stage, but we don’t see that happening honestly. First of all, we don’t see them beating Cerro Porteno in their next game, but we can see the match ending in a draw.

Penarol and Cerro Porteno to Draw at Half Time

Since we expect the game to end in a draw, we can also see Penarol and Cerro Porteno being tied at half time. After all, most matches that end in draws are also tied at half times.

That being said, Cerro Porteno had the lead at half time in the first duel between these two teams, but that happened after they scored a goal in the stoppage time. So, we won’t be surprised if this game is a draw at half time.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

The last two head-to-head duels between Penarol and Cerro Porteno have both gone under 2.5 total goals, so we can see that being the case on Tuesday as well.

Furthermore, Penarol averaged 2.00 goals per game in the group so far, just like Cerro Porteno. Also, Penarol has gone under 2.5 total goals in their last five matches in all competitions.

Penarol vs Cerro Porteno preview: 


Although they are sitting in the last place in the standings of their Copa Libertadores group at the moment, Penarol is still in position to get to the next stage since they are four points behind the top two teams. So, to do that, they need to win both of their remaining games. Meanwhile, the team is third in Uruguayan league right now and they’ve won four of their last six games there, so they are in good form.

Cerro Porteno

With seven points from the first four rounds of Copa Libertadores, Cerro Porteno has a good chance to secure their place in the next stage. However, other teams are still in play and close in points to them, so they need to do well in the last two rounds to progress. Meanwhile, Cerro Porteno is third in their domestic championship right now.
