Note that these odds are subject to change before kick-off so always confirm your bet slip with Betfred, our recommended bookie for this fixture.

Draw at the break

Our first tip is a bold draw at the break. While Deportivo Maldonado has lost one game since the start of the new Apertura season, they have been able to keep three clean sheets in five games, two of which have been barren draws. The hosts have kept two clean sheets in five games and have seen four of their last six games end 0-0. With such impressive defensive records on both ends, we think a draw is the most plausible outcome at the break.

Victory for the hosts

We are tipping the hosts to win this fixture, albeit, narrowly. These teams are defensive and should play to deny either side a scoring chance going by their recent fixtures. However, home advantage is why we think Penarol will get a win here. The hosts have not lost at home this season after three games, during which they have collected five points from two draws and one victory. Penarol has hosted Deportivo Maldonado twice before and bagged a draw and victory in those games.

A low scoring match

Given the good defensive records of both teams this season, we expect only a few goals in this fixture. The hosts have scored six and conceded three goals after three home fixtures. On the other hand, Deportive Maldonado has netted twice and kept clean sheets in the two away games played so far.

Match Preview: PenarolHosts Deportivo Maldonado for the Third Time in a Row

Penarol will host Deportivo Maldonado for the third time in a row. The hosts defeated Deportivo Maldonado 4-1 and drew 1-1 in the first and second consecutive fixtures at home.

Penarol

Penarol sits 8th and only a point behind Deportivo Maldonado. While the hosts have scored as many goals as Deportivo Maldonado (6) since the start of the new season, they are doing better defensively. Penarol has leaked three goals, two less than the away team. A defensive prowess is why they should hope for a good result in this game, especially against an equally defensive side. The hosting manager, Jose Mauricio Larriera Dibarboure averages 1.89 points per game after 28 games in charge. The Uruguayan has lost only three games since taking over in January.

Deportivo Maldonado

The visitors are two places above Penarol but with only one point difference, we expect them to fight for points in this match. Deportivo Maldonado has lost one game since the start of the new season. Moreover, they have not lost on the road after bagging a win and a draw in two away matches so far. An impressive defensive record has seen them keep clean sheets in both games.  The visiting manager, Francisco Palladino, averages 1.44 points per game since taking over Deportivo Maldonado in February 2019.
