Nacional to Win
As we already said, this is a very close match since both teams are doing well, but Nacional is the better team and reigning champion, along with being the top team in the standings at the moment as well. With that in mind, and taking into account the fact that Nacional won the last five duels against City Torque, our prediction is for Nacional to win this game.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
Four of the previous five meetings between City Torque and Nacional have gone over 2.5 total goals, which is why we expect to see the same in this match as well. Furthermore, Nacional is averaging 2.67 goals per game in Apertura this season, while City Torque averages 2.56 goals per game in the league. So, they should be able to combine for at least three goals between themselves.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
Just like our previous prediction, this suggestion is also based on the recent head-to-head history between these two teams since both teams have scored in four of their last five duels. Also, both teams have scored in 67% of all Nacional matches in the league, while the same is true for 44% of all City Torque games in Apertura this season.
City Torque vs Nacional preview: The derby of the round in the Apertura
With both teams in good form at the moment, this match could be very close and exciting. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at the teams:
The team that ended in the fourth place in the Uruguayan Primera Division last season has been a bit inconsistent at the start of the new Apertura After they lost their first two games, the team went of a four-game winning streak. However, City Torque broke that streak with a couple of losses but they won their last game and that could be a good sign for the upcoming matches.
The current champions of Uruguay are doing pretty well in the new Apertura season since they are sitting at the very top of the standings at the moment, with six wins, two draws, and a loss. Also, they haven’t lost in the last six games, so they are in great form at the moment and they will be looking to keep the run going in the upcoming duel with City Torque.
