Plaza Colonia to Win
The biggest surprise of the season in the Uruguayan Apertura is Plaza Colonia, the team that nobody expected on top of the standings at any point, but they are there with only five games left to play in the league. They have been amazing so far with seven wins, two draws, and one loss, so our prediction is for them to beat Deportivo Maldonado in the upcoming game.
Deportivo Maldonado and Plaza Colonia to Draw at Half Time
While we expect Plaza Colonia to win this game, it won’t be an easy match. So, we expect the half time to be equal. After all, Deportivo Maldonado has drawn at half time in five of their ten matches so far in the Uruguayan Apertura, while the same is true for six of ten matches played in the league by Plaza Colonia.
Under 2.5 Total Goals
three of the last five head-to-head matches between Deportivo Maldonado and Plaza Colonia have gone under 2.5 total goals, and we expect to see a similar thing in their upcoming duel.

Deportivo Maldonado vs Plaza Colonia preview: Can Plaza Colonia stay on top?
While the home team is not having the best of seasons in the Uruguayan Apertura, the guests are sitting at the top of the standings. So, let’s take a closer look at both teams ahead of their duel.
The team that finished last season in the 11th spot in the aggregate standings is doing pretty much the same in Apertura this season. After ten rounds, Deportivo Maldonado is tenth, with three wins, three draws, and four losses. All in all, it’s not a bad situation for them, but they could’ve done better with a bit more consistency. The team is also on a run of three games without a win and hosting the league leaders should bet a great motivator for their next game.
Nobody expected so see the team that finished the last season in tenth place in the aggregate standings to lead the league after ten rounds in the Uruguayan Apertura, probably the players themselves. However, Plaza Colonia is doing so great that they are currently first in the standings with three points more than the closest rivals, five games before the end of Apertura. Plaza Colonia has seven wins, two draws, and one less in ten matches they played this season.
