Palmeiras vs Cerro Porteno
Date: Wednesday, 6 July 2022
Kick-off at 23:15 UK/ 00:15 CET
Venue: Allianz Parque.
Palmeiras registered a dominant 3-0 win in the first leg and that too on the road. Now all they have to do is to maintain this lead coming into the second leg, while they are at home.
It goes without saying that they have a serious advantage here. The momentum is with them and if they try to be level-headed do the basics right, there is no way that they would miss out on a ticket to the next round of the knockouts.
They have been pretty consistent in terms of offense in the past several weeks and especially so at home.
Meanwhile, Cerro Porteno have not had a great few weeks lately. They are letting in goals in huge numbers and particularly on the road they have struggled quite a lot for wins.
Moreover, they also have a poor head-to-head record against this opponent over the years.
For these reasons, expect a convincing victory for Palmeiras this Wednesday in front of their home crowd.
