Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

2019 Copa Libertadores master Flamengo travels to three-time winners Olimpia in the first leg of the quarter-final on Wednesday.

The Paraguayans have not won any of their last three home games in any competitions, while the guests have won each of their last four away games.


Prediction for this match

After Olimpia lost twice in the group stage this season and conceded seven goals against International, Olimpia realized how difficult it was against the Brazilians in the round of 16.

However, Sergio Orteman‘s men did well and got away with a goalless draw in the first leg before winning the second leg 5-4 on penalties after another stalemate.

This is the first time in eight years that the Paraguayan team have reached the quarter-finals of the Copa Libertadores after reaching the final in 2013.

Olimpia last met Flamengo in this competition in 2012, when they drew 3-3 in Brazil before securing a 3-2 win in their own country. Neither team made it into the group stage this year.

Orteman’s side enter the game on Wednesday after losing their last two league games, suffering a 2-0 home loss to Guairena and a 3-1 away loss at Guarani. With these defeats Olimpia slipped to ninth place in the Paraguayan first division, with only three points from the first four games of the Clausura.

As for Flamengo, an impressive streak of eight straight wins in all competitions – in which they scored 27 goals – ended dramatically when they were beaten 4-0 at home against none other than Internacional, whom Olimpia eliminated in the preliminary round the Copa Libertadores.

To Yuri Alberto Goals on both sides of the half and with Taison After a third in the 55th minute, the game swung massively in their favor as Flamengo’s star moved forward Gabriel Barbosa the second yellow card was shown in the 63rd minute.

Alberto completed his hat trick seven minutes later and sentenced the Scarlet to their fifth league defeat of the season.

Flamengo’s title defense has so far not gone according to plan as they are currently 10 points behind Brasileiro leaders Atletico Mineiro despite having two games ahead of them.

Renato GauchoThe men are hoping to get their Copa Libertadores form rather than their national form to the quarter-finals by the middle of the week. The Scarlet Blacks have five wins and three draws to lose from their eight games so far this season, so they can travel to Asuncion with confidence.

Both teams looked defensively vulnerable in the last few weeks and so we were able to score a few goals on Wednesday evening.
