Tip Reasoning

  • Universitario have lost 4 of their last 6 Libertadores away games.
  • Universitario have failed to score in 6 of their last 8 Libertadores away games.

Cerro Porteno looking to advance on home turf

Last week’s first leg away in Peru looked like a potential banana skin for a Cerro team looking to reach the group stage proper of the Libertadores but the Paraguayans navigated it well, bringing back a 1-1 draw. Said result leaves the hosts in a good position and they’ll be hopeful of finishing the job off in front of the home crowd on Wednesday.

With 7 wins from their last 10 home games behind them, Cerro have every reason to be confident coming into the game and their strength on home soil is unquestionable. Indeed, they’ve also gone unbeaten across their last 5 Libertadores home games, winning 4 times in the process and that’s a streak they’ll be looking to further extend in this clash.

Universitario look to have missed their chance

Meanwhile, having come into the tie as big underdogs, mainly because of this away leg, Peruvians Universitario look to have missed their chance as regards causing an upset. To have any real chance of advancing, the side needed to win their home leg and having failed to do so, they now face a real uphill task in Asunción.

Univeristatio’s away record in the Libertadores does not make for good reading and leaves confidence low prior to arrival on Paraguayan soil. The visitors have lost 4 of their last 6 away games in the competition and having failed to notch in 6 of their last 8, finding an away goal they so desperately need looks highly unlikely.

Cerro Porteno have to be fancied

Ultimately, there only looks like being one winner on Wednesday and that’s Cerro Porteno. They are a stronger side than Universitario in terms of man for man quality and typically powerful on home turf, they’re not at all likely to slip up.

All things considered, we like the look of backing a home win to nil as far as the betting is concerned and feel it provides good value at current odds. Universitario are a very weak outfit on their continental travels and we just can’t picture them giving Cerro any kind of problem, with a 2-0 margin of home victory on the cards.
