Team News: Danubio
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just the sole fitness concern for the Danubio gaffer Esteban Conde to be concerned with from an otherwise complete group of players. Sergio Rodríguez (Knee injury) is sidelined.
Team News: Peñarol
Peñarol manager Alfredo Arias has multiple availability issues to deal with. Yonatthan Rak (Muscle injury), Camilo Mayada (Knee problems), Abel Hernández (Torn muscle bundle), Valentín Rodríguez (Muscle injury), Maximiliano Olivera (Muscle injury) and Hernán Menosse (Muscle injury) are not able to play.
Our thinking is that Danubio will do well to find the net against this Peñarol side who will likely be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
Our tip is therefore for a very competitive game with a 0-1 winning score for Peñarol at the end of this game.
