Cursor line color covers bracket-matcher highlight

I have set the bracket-matcher included in Core to highlight matching {}(), etc, with a custom color. Brackets on the same line do not appear to match because the cursor line color is blocking them. I have tested this by setting:

.line.cursor-line {
    background-color: transparent;

both brackets are highlighted.

But if assign a color to it, only one bracket matches. The cursor line color seems to cover the bracket highlight.

I would love to have both, line highlight and bracket highlight. Is there a way to achieve this?
