Cerro Porteno made it two wins from two in the Copa Libertadores group stage, while Universidad Chile and Libertad opened their accounts on Tuesday.
A brace from Diego Churin helped Cerro Porteno to a 2-1 victory over Defensor Sporting in Group 1.
Churin headed in the opener in the ninth minute, but that was cancelled out by a Carlos Benavidez strike.
But the Paraguayan hosts claimed all three points in dramatic fashion, Churin poking in a Santiago Arzamendia pass in the 96th minute for the winner.
Luis Zubeldia’s Cerro Porteno sit top of the group on six points, while Defensor Sporting were left on one point.
