Nacional de Football
Nacional de Football will be hoping to return to winning ways here after a 0-1 Clausura - Championship losing effort in their last game against Rentistas.
Bolsos have been conceding pretty frequently of late, but they’ve also found ways to score goals themselves. Looking at their last 6 games, Bolsos have been punished defensively in 6 of them as well as managing to get on the scoresheet in 5 of those games. That kind of trend won’t necessarily be continued here, though.
In their last game, Fénix drew 0-0 in the Primera División (Apertura) tie with Peñarol.
A succession of accomplished showings by the Fénix defence has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 2 from their past 6 fixtures overall. During the same period, the number of goals that they have scored themselves is 4.
Team News: Nacional de Football
Nacional de Football boss Gustavo Munúa has no fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this clash thanks to a fully injury-free group ready to go.
Team News: Fénix
Out of a mainly available group of players, there is just the sole fitness problem for the Fénix gaffer Juan Carrasco to contend with. Agustín Canobbio (Leg Injury) won’t be playing here. Andrés Barboza will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Our thinking is that Nacional de Football have it within them to be able to create a decent number of chances and shots on target.
At the same time, Fénix will be up against it finding the net themselves but do we see them managing to get on the scoresheet here.
We’re predicting a fairly comfortable 3-1 win for Nacional de Football come full-time.
