Copa Libertadores preview: Penarol - Universidad Catolica

Copa Libertadores preview: Penarol - Universidad Catolica

-

One of the most interesting ties of the round takes place in Uruguay where both teams have realistic hopes of taking home the trophy

PROBABLE LINE-UPS
Penarol (4-4-2):
Sosa; G. Rodriguez, D. Rodriguez, Gonzalez,
Valdez; Aguiar, Freitas, Corujo, Mier; Olivera, Martinuccio

After taking out Internacional in the last round, the Uruguayans will count on Olivera to find the net and guide the squad into the semi-finals.
Universidad Catolica (3-5-1-1):
Garces; Henriquez, Valenzuela, Martinez; Eluchans, Meneses,
Ormeno, Costa, Silva; Canete; Pratto
Getafe

Boca's loss is Universidad's gain. Marcelo Ca
nete has made quite the impression since traveling to Chile on loan. The attacking midfielder will look to show his magic again to guide the Chileans to success.
