Player to watch: Maximiliano Silvera

As it stands, Maximiliano Silvera is the joint top-scorer in the Copa Libertadores, alongside Atletico-MG's Paulinho. The former Santos forward has bagged five goals in as many group matches so far, he also found the net nine times in his last 11 games across all competitions.

Silvera scored in his last two appearances for Penarol, and he'll look to extend that scoring streak to three matches.
