After making their Copa return, last playing in the 2018/19 season, Cerro Porteno were drawn in Group G with Colón, Olimpia and Peñarol subsequently finishing second though level on points with third place Olimpia but their superior goal-difference was enough for El Ciclón to sneak into the knockout phase. Francisco Arce’s men would only claim two wins, both of them coming at home against Colón (3-1) and Peñarol (1-0), Fernando Romero who netted a brace in the former ended as the club’s leading group stage marksman on two goals. Cerro Porteño went into the opening leg having won three of their previous home Copa games while losing the other two. They’re also on a four-game winless streak on the road (two draws and two losses) while registering one goal and conceding on three occasions.
