Fluminense vs Cerro Porteno Predictions


Fluminenese have a strong home record, and I expect them to have too much quality for their Paraguayan visitors. 

I'm on the hosts to score two goals or more, while I also like the chances of BTTS at the Maracana on Thursday. 

  • Fluminense scored 2+ goals in 8 of their last 10 home matches (Copa Libertadores)
  • Fluminense scored 2+ goals in their last 4 home matches
  • Fluminense have seen BTTS in 5 of their last 6 home matches
  • Cerro Porteno conceded 2+ goals in 3 of their last 5 away matches (Copa Libertadores)
  • Cerro Porteno have seen BTTS in 3 of their last 5 away matches (Copa Libertadores)

Head to Head


Fluminense and Cerro Porteno have faced each other on five previous occasions since 2009. The Brazilians claimed victory in their first four encounters before a goalless draw in Asuncion last month. 

Fluminense Form


Fluminense come into Thursday's Copa Libertadores contest winless in three Serie A matches after a 2-1 defeat at Sao Paulo earlier this week. Fernando Diniz's side have suffered a downturn in domestic form, which has seen them fail to win seven of their last eight league fixtures. 

The Tricolor Flu Fluzão have fared better in the Copa Libertadores. Unbeaten in their first four fixtures, Diniz's men top Group A with eight points collected. 

Holding a three-point lead over Cerro Porteño, Fluminense can clinch a knockout spot with a win on Thursday.

Fluminense Team News


Fluminense boss Diniz has a lengthy list of likely absentees this week. Douglas Costa, Renato Augusto, Samuel Xavier, André and Gabriel Pires are among eight players set to miss out. 

Cerro Porteno Form


Cerro Porteno arrive at the famous Maracana unbeaten in nine matches following a 1-1 draw with Olimpia in the Paraguay Division Professional. Manel Jiménez's side were also held to a share of the spoils in their most recent Copa Libertadores contest against Allianza Lima (1-1).

The Paraguayan champions have struggled in previous away fixtures in this competition. Cerro failed to win 10 of their last 12 away Copa Libertadores matches since 2021. 

Jiménez's men sit second in Group A, one point ahead of third-placed Colo Colo.

Cerro Porteno Team News


Cerro Porteno boss Jiminez is unable to call on a handful of players on Thursday. Federico Carrizo is likely to remain sidelined after he missed the weekend draw against Olimpia. 

Alan Benítez, Lucas Quintana and Bruno Valdez will also miss out for the Paraguayans. 

Verdict

Fluminense have been reliable in the goal markets in recent weeks.

I'm backing the Brazilians to score two goals or more and BTTS in a likely entertaining Copa Libertadores contest.
