Stadium: Manuel Ferreira (Asuncion).
The encounter between Olimpia and Internacional will conclude the first leg of the Copa Libertadores Cup last 16. Despite the field factor, Olimpia are quoted as the underdogs of the encounter. That said, the Paraguayans have been without game practice for a long time.
Olimpia current form
Olimpia have won their last three official matches, but the last time Olimpia played was at the end of May, so it’s hard to say what form the Paraguayans are in at the moment. Let us remind you that Olimpia made it to the play-offs of the Copa Libertadores thanks to their second place in Group B, ahead of Deportivo Táchira and Always Ready. Olimpia lost the first leg to Internacional, with the first leg in Belo Horizonte going 6-1 to the Brazilians.
Internacional current form
The Brazilians have no problem with the game practice. However, the Red’s tone itself is questionable, as Inter have not won since June 25 and the match against Chapecoense. Since then, the Red have played five Brazilian league games, three of which have been drawn and two defeats. Such results have resulted in the Internacional even dropping out of the South American Cup zone. The Red are now in 15th place in the Serie A standings. However, it is worth noting Inter’s good away statistics in the Brazilian league. In six games away from home, the Colorados lost only once, at the start of the competition, to Fortaleza.
