On the other hand, Atletico Penarol started with an away defeat at the Strongest. However, this is not a surprise since they have the worst possible away record in the South American competitions. Their last road win in the competition is dated back to the beginning of 2013 and lost 10 of the 13 since.

However, Penarol are a smart enough side that make use of their home fixtures. They already bagged wins against Libertad Asuncion and Tucuman by clear 2 goals margins and are second in the standings.

Yet, Tucuman are level on 6 points with Penarol. Therefore, this is a six-pointer to qualify for the knockouts. A draw is good for Penarol since they sit at home to Strongest in the final group game. But Tucuman have to take the long trip to group leaders Asuncion.
