Gremio preview: Hoping to finish at the top

While Gremio have secured the next stage of Copa Libertadores with a win over Huachipato in the last round, they can also overtake The Strongest at the top of the group if they beat Estudiantes. This would mean Gremio will play against Penarol in the next round instead of the reigning South American champions Fluminense.

Meanwhile, Pedro Geromel, Jhonata Robert, Andre Henrique, Cristian Pavon, and Lucas Mila are out with injuries at the moment.

Estudiantes preview: Hoping to end Copa Libertadores with a bang

With just four points from the previous five games in Copa Libertadores, Estudiantes are bound for a last-place finish in their group. While they started the competition with a draw and a win, they lost three games in a row, so their form has been on the downward trajectory for a while now.

When it comes to team news, Guido Carrillo and Javier Altamirano are on the team's injury list ahead of this game.

Predicted lineup: Mansilla (GK), Mancuso, Romero, Lollo, Benedetti, Ascacibar, Sosa, Zuqui, Cetre, Correa & Piatti

Player to watch: Franco Cristaldo

While Cristaldo has yet to score in Copa Libertadores, the attacking midfielder has already scored a couple of goals in Serie A and overall, he's one of the key Gremio players on the offensive end.
