Boston River will be hoping to bounce back here following the 5-2 Primera Division (Apertura) defeat in their last game at the hands of Peñarol.
It’s been seldom in recent times where Boston River have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that El Boston have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 14 goals on the way.
Montevideo City Torque
Montevideo City Torque come into this encounter following on from a 2-0 Primera Division (Apertura) win against Fénix in their last outing.
For 5 of the previous 6 clashes featuring Montevideo City Torque, a notably low volume of goals have been hit between them and opposing sides. The overall average goals scored per game in that spell works out to a paltry 2.17, with the average goals for Celeste standing at 1. That sort of trend isn’t assured to be continued here, however.

Team News: Boston River
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just a single fitness concern for the Boston River gaffer Sebastián Abreu to be concerned with thanks to an otherwise robust group. Gastón Álvarez (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is sidelined.
Team News: Montevideo City Torque
In an otherwise full-strength squad, there’s only the lone fitness worry for the Montevideo City Torque boss Pablo Marini to be concerned with. Ignacio Neira (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.
Our assessment here is that Boston River could find themselves up against it to put one past this Montevideo City Torque outfit who we think will likely be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
We’re therefore tipping a good battle with a 0-1 victory for Montevideo City Torque at the end of the match.
Should be an interesting one.
