Olimpia faced defeat in their previous match, away at Sol de América (0-1).

Preceding that game was the home draw versus Libertad (after extra-time, 5-4 on penalties) that ended 1-1.

This is expected to be a close game, with Olimpia perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage.

With an average of more than two goals per home game in the league (19 in 9 games), Olimpia's attacking play is working. 13 goals have been conceded.
