Cerro Porteño vs Fluminense: Storylines
With the Paraguay Premier League reaching its midway point, Cerro did not compete in June. However, with only this tie in mind until the Torneo Clausura begins on July 16, Fernando Arce will try to prepare the team as much as possible. The last time Cerro reached the quarter-finals of Copa Libertadores was in 2011.
On the other hand, Fluminense has seen action in Brazil’s Serie A. They came to this match after winning 2-1 Sport Recife on the weekend. They haven’t been consistent, with two victories, two draws and one defeat in their last five games.
Cerro and Fluminense have met on two occasions, both for their semi-finals matchup of Copa Sudamericana 2009. The Brazilian side won the two matches, but of course, now Cerro will try to get a very different result.
