Nacional to Win

The reigning champions of Uruguay are also doing well in their domestic Apertura, but Penarol is not far behind them. Nacional is currently third, while Penarol is sixth, with three points fewer than Nacional. However, the two teams met less than two weeks ago and Nacional won that match 2-0, which is basically the same thing that we expect to see in this match as well.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Our prediction here is based on the recent head-to-head history between Nacional and Penarol since four of their last five duels have gone under 2.5 total goals. That being said, Nacional averaged 2.83 goals per game in Copa Libertadores this season, while Penarol averaged 2.67 goals per game in Copa Sudamericana. Still, we expect to see a low-scoring game here.

Both Teams to Score – No

Three of the previous five h2h duels between Nacional and Penarol have ended without both teams scoring. With that in mind, we don’t expect to see both teams score in this match either. Furthermore, both teams have scored in just two of the six Penarol matches in Copa Sudamericana, while the same thing happened in just 33% of the Nacional matches in Copa Libertadores this season.

Nacional vs Penarol preview: The Uruguayan derby in the Top 16 phase

It’s a rare occasion to witness an Uruguayan matchup in the later stages of continental competitions, so let’s take a closer look at Nacional and Penarol ahead of their upcoming duel:

Nacional

The reigning champions of Uruguay have reached the Top 16 phase of Copa Sudamericana after they were third in their Copa Libertadores group, so this isn’t really something they planned and wished for. In any case, the team is in solid form and they are currently in the third spot in the Uruguayan Apertura after ten rounds have passed in this competition.

Penarol

One of the biggest clubs in Uruguay is Penarol, but the team failed to qualify for this year’s edition of Copa Libertadores, which was a disappointment for them. On the bright side, they topped their Copa Sudamericana group to secure a spot in the Top 16 phase and a match with their fierce rivals Nacional. In the domestic league, Penarol is currently in the sixth place, six points behind the top team in the league.
