- 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
