City Torque and Penarol to Draw

With four draws in the first six matches of the new Apertura, Penarol certainly knows how to share points. Meanwhile, City Torque is without a draw in the first six rounds and we think it’s time for them to split the points with someone, hopefully with Penarol since that’s our prediction for this game. Also, we have seen two draws in the previous three head-to-head duels between these two teams.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Three of the last five meetings between City Torque and Penarol have gone under 2.5 total goals, so we expect this trend to continue in the upcoming game. Furthermore, these two teams are not among the teams that play high scoring games in the Uruguayan league – City Torque is averaging 2.00 goals per game so far, while Penarol averages 2.17 goals per match.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

It might be weird to recommend under and both teams to score at the same time, but we expect to see a game that might end with a 1-1 draw. In any case, three of the last five h2h duels between these two teams have ended with both teams scoring, so it’s not something unusual for matches between Penarol and City Torque.

City Torque vs Penarol preview: Another Montevideo derby

Two teams that finished in the Top 4 of the 2020 Uruguayan Primera Division will meet in the seventh round of the new Apertura season. So, let’s take a closer look at both teams ahead of this duel:

City Torque

Even before the new season in the Uruguay has began, City Torque played in the Copa Sudamericana group stages – just like their upcoming rivals. However, City Torque failed to qualify for the Top 16 of the competition after they finished 2nd in their group, three points behind Independiente. Still, it was a good showing for the team that started the new season in the Uruguayan league well, with four wins and two losses in the first six games.

Penarol

After securing a spot in the Top 16 of the Copa Sudamericana by winning their group, Penarol fans certainly hoped for a better start in the Uruguayan Apertura. However, the team started the new season with two wins and four draws, which is not the worst start since the team is undefeated in six games, but it is only good enough for the 7th spot in the standings right now. A win in the next round would certainly boost the confidence of the team for the rest of the season.
