Cerro Largo, who won their previous game, will hope for a similar result following the 3-1 Primera Division (Apertura) victory against Villa Española.
It’s been seldom in recent times that Cerro Largo have shown defensive steel. The reality is that Cerro Largo have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 7 goals along the way.
Nacional de Football
After a loss in their previous game against River Plate in Primera Division (Apertura) action, Nacional de Football and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
The trend of at least one side getting a clean sheet in games featuring Nacional de Football has become evident of late. Looking at their last 6 meetings shows that it has happened 6 times. In those clashes, their opponents have hit a goal total of 7 while Nacional de Football have scored 6. That trend might not follow through into this next game, however.
Team News: Cerro Largo
There aren’t many selection issues, with just one fitness concern for the Cerro Largo gaffer Danielo Núñez to be concerned with thanks to an almost full-strength set of players. Martín Ferreira (Fractured Rib) misses out.
Team News: Nacional de Football
With a completely healthy group ready to go, the Nacional de Football manager Alejandro Cappuccio doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of before this game.
We think that Cerro Largo will have a tough ask to put one past this Nacional de Football outfit who we think will likely gain the upper hand.
We therefore fancy a good tussle with a 0-1 winning score for Nacional de Football when all is said and done.
A close call.
