Cerro Porteno vs Boston River
Date: Wednesday, 12th July 2017
Kick off at 01:45 UK/ 02:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Defensores Del Chaco.
Cerro Porteno were unlucky to end their Copa Sudamericana adventure in the semifinal last year “thanks” to an away goal rule which sent Atletico Nacional to the final.
The Paraguayans are looking to improve the record this year. The second step on their way comes in the likes of the Uruguayan Boston River who are enjoying their first ever appearance in the competition.
The hosts are led by the Colombian manager Leonel Alvarez who won the fourth place in Apertura season of Division Profesionel.
The hosts have had hue troubles finding the back of the net in the finish of the season as they failed to score a single goal in last three league outings.
On the positive note, the Colombian manager had enough time to recover his team for the second round of Copa Sudamericana where they will be favourites to go past Boston River.
Boston do not belong to the very top of the Uruguayan football.
Alejandro Apud’s men did open the new season in Primera Division’s Intermediate Round in a promising fashion, but they will come in the game with Cerro Porteno after a disappointing 0-1 defeat to Plaza Nacional on the home patch on Friday.
