Team News: Nacional de Football
Nacional de Football manager Gustavo Munúa will be happy not to have any fitness worries at all ahead of this match with a completely injury-free group to pick from.
Team News: Danubio
From a largely healthy squad, there’s just the lone fitness problem for the Danubio gaffer Mauricio Larriera to be concerned about. Matías Jones (Knee Injury) won’t be in action.
In our opinion, Nacional de Football should dominate possession and create several successful chances.
In contrast, Danubio might well find it a difficult task finding the net themselves but we do fancy them hitting back at some stage here, too.
We can therefore see a controlled 3-1 margin for Nacional de Football at the end of the 90 minutes.
