The Paraguayans are looking to make the final for the first time in their history, as they take on Brazilian starlet Neymar and Santos in Sao Paulo this Wednesday

PROBABLE LINE-UPS

Santos (4-4-2):
Rafael; Para, Durval, Edu Dracena, Leo; Adriano, Arouca, Danilo, Elano; Ze Eduardo, Neymar
Getafe

Santos make one change at the back for the visit of Cerro, as Ganso remains their one long-term casualty.


Cerro Porteno (4-4-2):
Barreto; Piris, Uglessich, Pedro Benitez, César Benítez; Caceres, Burgos, Villarreal, Torres; Fabbro, Nanni

Cerro will stick with a similar lineup as last week, again looking for Fabbro and Nanni to bring their scoring touch.
