The Cerro Porteño vs Real Garcilaso Copa Libertadores 2013 match will be this Thursday, February 21, 2013 (5:15 PM EDT) at the Estadio General Pablo Rojas in Paraguay. Cerro Porteño (PAR) and Real Garcilaso (PER) will play their second game during the group stages of the Copa Libertadores 2013. They are part of Group 6 which also includes Tolima (COL) and Santa FE (COL) and Universidad de Chile (CHI); the top two teams will advance to the final-16.
Cerro Porteño will make their debut at home in the “Olla Azulgrana” when they receive Real Garcilaso from Peru. Cerro Porteño is going through a bad streak as they haven’t been able to win in the last couple of games, therefore they have the pressure to win on Thursday at home. A win could put them tied to first place in Group 6 before they travel to Colombia next week.
Real Garcilaso made a long trip from Cuzco, Peru to Paraguay in order to play their second match in this Copa Libertadores 2013. After tying their first game at home against Independiente Santa Fe, Garcilaso is in a good position to play defensively against Cerro Porteño.
Cerro Porteño vs Real Garcilaso Prediction
Cerro Porteño lost their first game, however they have a clear opportunity to get back on their feet when they receive a fairly weak Garcilaso. If Real Garcilaso obtains another point, they could be a surprise team; therefore, they will play a defensive scheme to attempt and leave Paraguay with a point. The Cerro Porteño vs Real Garcilaso match will end in a 2-1 win for the home team.
