Scroll down for all of our predictions, poll and stats for the Rentistas v Peñarol game (including the best match odds).
Rentistas won’t want a repeat of their last result here after the 2-1 Primera Division loss in their previous game against Deportivo Maldonado.
It has been a rare occasion in recent times that Rentistas have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that Rentistas have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 13 goals along the way. Previous results aside, we will just have to wait and see whether the trend might be sustained in this next match or not.
Peñarol will go into the meeting following a 3-0 Primera Division win against Montevideo Wanderers in their last outing.
A succession of resolute displays from the Peñarol defensive unit has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 4 from their last 6 outings overall. Over that same period of time, their own forwards have managed to score 12.
Team News: Rentistas
The Rentistas manager Martín Varini does not have any fitness worries whatsoever coming into this match thanks to a fully injury-free squad available to select from.
Team News: Peñarol
Peñarol manager Diego Forlan has a number of players out of action. Rubén Bentancourt (Muscle Injury) and Martín Correa (Muscle Injury) are not able to play. Ezequiel Busquets cannot play in this game through suspension.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Rentistas could well find it tough to breach the defence of this Peñarol outfit who we reckon will end up scoring and staying ahead.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a good battle with a 0-1 victory for Peñarol at the end of the 90 minutes.
Hopefully it’s a good one.
