Cerro vs Wanderers
CONMEBOL Copa Sudamericana
Date: Thursday, 30 May 2019
Kick-Off 23:15 UK / 00:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Luis Franzini (Montevideo).
Montevideo rivals are set for another episode of their rivalry on Thursday evening when they will battle it out in the reverse fixture of the second round of Copa Sudamericana tie at Estadio Luis Franzini. Interestingly, they will meet each other at the weekend as well in the 15th round of the domestic league campaign.
The first leg saw an evenly-matched contest which ended with no goals, meaning this return outing will determine the third round contestant. Looking at the form both teams have had so far in the season, Wanderers have to be considered as favourites.
Cerro hold the rock-bottom of the Uruguayan Primera Division standings with just 8 points from 13 rounds. Nevertheless, their fortunes were shifted around by the new head coach Richard Martinez who seems to have found the winning formula to help his team keep things quite at the back since taking charge last month.
Cerro vs Wanderers: Head-to-head
Teams have 13 wins apiece coming into their 33rd head to head encounter.
They shared spoils in last two H2H meetings.
Four of last six head to head affairs between the two outfits ended with fewer than three goals scored.
Cerro won three and drew two of last five clashes against Bohemios.
Cerro vs Wanderers: Prediction
Wanderers have been better than their counterparts so far in the season, but they will have to work hard to advance to the next round knowing how Cerro raised the level of their game defensively under the new manager. Bohemios lost only one of past seven games in all competitions. They can also be a very tough nut to crack on their day and they kept their net untouched in two of last three fixtures.
Taking the importance of the match (third round of Copa Sudamericana is at stake) as well as the fact both teams are well capable of defending their own goal, backing a low-scoring contest looks to be the best way to go. Also, only two of last six head to head games between the two teams saw three or more goals scored. As for the outcome, draw is definitely the most likable of three based on everything written above.
