Nacional to win

Nacional is the clear favourite in this matchup and should get some points. The visitors are 3rd in the Primera Division after five games and with a game in hand. A win on Saturday should earn them the top spot, something which we think they can achieve. The hosts are weak defensively and sit last on the table with only 1 point after five matches.

More than two goals to be scored

We are also tipping more than two goals in this fixture. The home team has a struggling  backline that could be costly against the in-form Nacional. They welcome Nacional for the sixth game of the season after failing to secure a win in their last five matches. A poor start to the new season of four losses and one draw is why we feel Nacional should score at least two goals in this match. We are also backing hosts to score at least once because they have only failed to do so in on only one of their last ten games.

Nacional to find the net first

Nacional is the better side both defensively and offensively. The visitors have won four of their last five matches and should do so in this game. Moreover, Nacional is the second-best on the road after collecting six points in two away games so far.

Match Preview: Nacional Can Go Top of Sunday

After securing 12 points in five Apertura matches, Nacional has a chance to become table toppers. But can they achieve that feat on the road?

Boston River

A lacklustre defence that has let in 12 goals in five games is a big worry for Juan Ramon Tejera as he prepares his side for this fixture. Moreover, an attacking front that has netted only six times in five matches is equally worrying, especially against Nacional. The hosting manager averages 1.04 points per match after 23 games, which is equally another big headache for the Uruguayan tactician as he prepares to face Alejandro Capuccion who averages 1.92 points per match.

Nacional

The travelling manager, Alejandro Capuccion, should hope for a good result in this matchup. He faces a side that struggles at the back and should bank on his forwards to get a result on Sunday.  The manager has seen out 12 matches with Nacional during which he has won 7, drawn 2 and lost three times. Only one point separates Nacional from the first-placed Plaza Colonia and we think Nacional has the advantage to win this fixture.
