Copa Libertadores preview: Cerro Porteno - Jaguares

The Paraguayans are in pole position after a 1-1 draw in Chiapas but will have to be strong against a Jaguares team who are still very much in the tie

PROBABLE LINE-UPS
Cerro Porteno (4-4-2):

Barreto; Piris, Benítez, Cardozo, C. Benítez; Fabbro, Villarreal, Caceres, Torres; Lucero, Nanni

Cerro are unchanged from the first leg, and can be expected to play a counter-attacking style with dangermen Jonathan Fabbro and Juan Manuel Lucero getting forward to support centre forward Roberto Nanni.

Jaguares (4-4-2):

Villasenor; Martínez, Fuentes, Flores, Razo; Zamora, Esqueda, Rodriguez, Andrade; Martinez, Salazar
The Mexicans are boosted by the return of Colombian star Jackson Martinez up front, who enters for Jorge Hernandez alongside goalscorer Antonio Pedroza.


DID YOU KNOW?
  • Cerro Porteno have the chance to make the last four for the sixth time on Thursday, and the first time since 1999.
  • They have never progressed from beyond the semis, their last outing ending in a 6-3 aggregate defeat to Deportivo Cali.
  • In 2011 they boast the top scorer in the competition, ex-Velez Sarsfield striker Roberto Nanni (pictured) with seven goals.
  • Porteno and Catolica are the only teams to boast two players of the week according to Conmebol's judgment. Nanni and Jonathan Fabbro have both gained the honour in 2011.
  • A win would set the Ciclon up with a clash against Santos, who they drew and lost against in the group stages.
  • Jaguares are playing in their first ever Libertadores campaign, and despite finishing last in the Mexican Primera Division this year they have acquitted themselves well.
  • The Chiapas side have won three, lost three and drawn two so far, both ties coming in the last 16 win over Junior of Colombia.
  • The return of top scorer Jackson Martinez, who has scored three so far, is a big boost for the visitors
  • Away from home their form has been poor. The three reverses in Group 6 came on foreign soil, while in Barranquilla they drew 3-3 with Junior to win on away goals.
