Fluminense vs Cerro Porteno build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
While the rest of the last-16 second legs were concluded two weeks ago, this tie was rescheduled due to the death of Cerro Porteno manager Francisco Arce’s son. The unfortunately delay might be a boost for Fluminense who went through a poor run of form following their victory in the first leg. After a 2-0 win, Fluminense lost three straight matches in the league and cup, beaten by Gremio, Palmeiras and Criciuma. However, they returned to winning ways at the weekend, getting revenge over Criciuma in the second leg of their Copa do Brasil last-16 tie.
Cerro Porteno have also been winless since the first leg, but their run also extends to include the previous defeat against Fluminense, with the Paraguayan side going five games without victory. In the weeks since the first leg, Cerro Porteno have started the Paraguayan Primera Division, drawing their opening three games. Luqueno, Libterad and River Plate (not that one) have all been held two draws, with the former and latter stalemates ending goalless.
- Fluminense (vs Criciuma): Felipe; Xavier, Manoel, Luccas Claro, Egidio; Martinelli, Yago Felipe; Luiz Henrique, Nene, Gabriel Teixeira; Fred.
- Cerro Porteno (vs River Plate Asuncion): Jean; Espinola, Duarte, Patino, Rodriguez; Carrascal, Villasanti; Gimenez, Aquino; Boselli, Morales.
Neither side has any fresh injury concerns.

Player to watch: Nene (Fluminense)
Fans of European football will remember Brazilian midfielder Nene who represented the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, West Ham United, Monaco and Espanyol, becoming something of a cult favourite despite never playing for his national team.
Well, that Nene is still playing at the age of 40, as part of Fluminense’s midfield and he isn’t being carried by his team-mates. Nene has been directly involved in 10 goals for Fluminense across the season so far, including four in the Copa Libertadores. The 40-year-old has scored two goals and recorded two assists and opened the scoring in the first leg against Cerro Porteno, putting Fluminense in a good position.
