Cerro Porteño vs América de Cali: Storylines
Cerro Porteño have been struggling to string good results together lately, as they only won one from their last four Copa Libertadores games. With one remaining fixture, their spot in the last 16 is in jeopardy and they'll host the main challenger for that berth.
On the other hand, América de Cali have had a weak start to the group stage. The Colombian champions have failed to grab a win for the first four games, but somehow they arrive at Matchday 6 alive in the battle for a top-two finish.
With Juan Cruz Real no longer on the bench, caretaker boss Jersson González will try to lead his side to the next round. Even though that seemed very difficult a week ago, América now depend on themselves to accomplish it.
