Cerro Largo vs Palestino Prediction & Match Preview

Cerro Largo vs Palestino
Copa Libertadores Qualifiers
Date: Wednesday, 5 February 2020
Kick-Off at 22:15 UK
Venue: Estadio Domingo Burgueno Miguel, Maldonado

Cerro Largo is one of a few teams having a debut in the Copa Libertadores qualifiers. They had a great year last season in Uruguay, ending in 5th position with 26 points from 15 games. Most recent form in friendly matches is also impressive, so surely Palestino are not going to have a walk in the park. We are expecting a narrow contest and huge support from the home crowd. Still, visitors from Chile have been labelled as warm favorites.

Palestino have played a big role in the most recent edition of Copa Libertadores. They were placed in the group of death along with Internacional, River Plate and Alianza Lima. There were many top-tier matches played, and Chilean representative ended as 3rd with seven points. The most notable result was a goalless draw against River Plate on the road.

We find Cerro Largo to be very unpredictable team. They are playing equally good at home or on the road. The number of points they have won at this stadium is 13 in seven matches, while collecting the same away.
