Team news & rosters
|Position||Athletico Paranaense roster|
|Goalkeepers||Bento, Paixão, Linck|
|Defenders||Dedé, Khellven, Abner, Hernández, Orejuela, Henrique, Piauí, Pedrinho|
|Midfielders||Fernandes, Bueno, Marlos, Moura, Cittadini, Erick, Cuello, García, Christian|
|Cirino, Canobbio, Vitinho, Terans, Rocha, Rômulo, Pablo|
Two wins in their past five has checked Athletico's momentum, but they may enter this match as the proverbial favourite through both a stronger domestic record and home advantage.
With a second-leg tie away from their own patch to come however, it will be crucial that they get off to a flying start, particularly with their eye set on making the last four.
Predicted Athletico Paranaense starting XI: Bento; Khellven, Santos, Heleno, Abner; Fernandinho, Erick; Canobbio, Bueno, Cuello; Roque.
|Goalkeepers||Pourtau, Zozaya, Andújar|
|Defenders||Rogel, Más, Valdez, Noguera, Paz, Núñez, Godoy, Rodríguez, Cacace, Fernandez|
|Midfielders||Morel, Zuqui, Castro, Piñeiro, Flores, Pellegrino, Orosco, Trombini, Lansade|
|Forwards||Díaz, Toledo, Lattanzio, Spetale, Boselli, Zapiola, Palavecino|
If a team needed a pickup in form for their run-in to the continental quarter-finals, Estudiantes were one such side - but just a single victory in their last five games has left them looking quite out of shape.
Knockout football has a way of lifting teams from the canvas though, and they'll hope to make the most of this road trip before they host the return leg next week on their own turf.
Predicted Estudiantes starting XI: Andujar; Godoy, Rogel, Lollo, Morel, Mas; Castro, Rodriguez, Zuqui; Diaz, Piatti.
