Progreso will be hoping to bounce back here after the 2-1 Primera Division (Apertura) defeat last time out to Fénix.
It’s been all too rare in recent games where Progreso have kept a clean sheet. The facts show that Los Gauchos Del Pantanoso have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, leaking 11 goals in the process.
Boston River will go into the meeting after a 1-0 Primera Division (Apertura) win against Cerro Largo in their previous fixture.
The stats don’t lie, and Boston River have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, conceding 6 goals overall. At the back, El Boston have clearly had some problems. We will find out whether or not that trend will be continued on here.

Team News: Boston River
With a completely healthy group ready to go, Boston River manager Sebastián Abreu doesn’t have any fitness worries at all coming into this match. Sebastián Gorga will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Our assessment here is that Boston River might well have a job on their hands to hit the back of the net against this Progreso outfit who should just have the edge.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a hard-fought 1-0 victory for Progreso at the conclusion of the game.
