Cerro Porteno and General Diaz remain unbeaten in the Paraguay Division Profesional after claiming wins on Sunday.

Francisco Arce's Cerro Porteno are still two points clear after a 3-1 win at home to Deportivo Capiata.

After a neat one-two just inside the area, Matias Corujo put the hosts ahead on 17 minutes with a fine finish into the top corner.

Jose Ortigoza doubled his team's advantage 10 minutes into the second half as he finished into an open goal.

Fabio Escobar pulled a goal back from the penalty spot for the visitors with 15 minutes remaining, but Cerro Porteno sealed victory when Angel Romero struck late on after a counter-attack.

General Diaz kept the pressure on with a 2-1 win at home to Sportivo Luqueno.

First-half goals from Sergio Gomez and Cristian Martinez led the hosts to the win, with Rodrigo Lopez's 40th-minute penalty not enough for Luqueno.

Nacional Asuncion claimed their third straight win by defeating Guarani 1-0 but remain six points behind second.

Jorge Achucarro scored the only goal of the game in the 41st minute.

Rodolfo Gamarra's 27th-minute goal saw Libertad edge Rubio Nu 1-0 and Olimpia proved too good for Cerro Porteno PF 3-1.

Sol de America returned to winning ways, snapping their three-game winless run in the league by beating Deportivo Carapegua 3-2.
