Grêmio FB, last year's fourth-place finishers in Brazil's Serie A, looks to complete their first step toward a possible fourth CONMEBOL Copa Libertadores championship by protecting a 2-0 aggregate lead on the road against 20-time Paraguay champions Club Libertad, as Soccerway documented. But in the underdog Paraguayan side, Grêmio faces an in-form team that has won six of their last seven competitive matches. In fact, the club's only defeat came in the first leg of their Copa Libertadores tie against Grêmio. Libertad has also won their last two matches at home, though Thursday's match will be only their third at home since May, and will live stream from Paraguay's capital city of Asunción.

Grêmio will have to win without veteran central defender Pedro Geromel, who was sent off for a reckless, studs-up challenge in the 51st minute in the first leg against Libertad, as BeIn Sports reported. The 33-year-old will serve his suspension in the second leg on Thursday. But his absence in the first leg did not prevent 10-man Grêmio from tallying both of its goals late, on scores by Diego Tardelli and David Braz in the 71st and 84th minutes, respectively.
