Santiago, Sep 19 (efe-epa).- Chilean club Colo Colo will field its top line-up for the opening leg of its Copa Libertadores quarter-final showdown against Brazil's Palmeiras.

El Cacique, which is looking to get back to the semi-finals of South America's premier club soccer competition for the first time since 1997, will be rested and healthy going into Thursday night's first-leg contest at Santiago's David Arellano Monumental Stadium thanks to a three-week break from domestic-league play.

"We're going to defend these colors to the death and we're going to try to have a good result at home and then go to fight in (the second leg) in Brazil," Argentine-born Paraguayan forward Lucas Barrios said.

"We have to guard against the counter-attack. We need to be strong at home," Barrios, who played for Palmeiras from 2015 to 2017, added.

Defender Julio Barroso appears to have recovered from injury and is expected to be back in Colo Colo's starting 11, while forward Esteban Paredes will line up alongside Barrios in attack.

Palmeiras, for its part, arrived in Santiago on Tuesday without two suspended players - midfielder Felipe Melo and forward Deyverson.

Colombian forward Miguel Borja is considered the most likely substitute for Deyverson in attack for the Sao Paulo club, which is expected to field roughly the same line-up it has been using for Brazilian-league matches.

Colo Colo will be the underdog against Palmeiras, which was the top team in the group phase of the 2018 Copa Libertadores.
