Despite their loss to Colon in the first round of Copa Libertadores, the team from Montevideo is actually in very good form.

So, their fans are rightfully hoping for a good result in the next game.


Just like their upcoming opponent, Olimpia also lost their first-round game in Group G of Copa Libertadores, so this is a very important match for the Paraguayan team.
