Penarol to Win with Handicap (-1)

We would like to see Villa Espanola get their first win in the Primera Division soon, but we doubt that will happen in this game. Penarol is too good for Villa Espanola and they are still undefeated in the league. Also, Penarol won their last two matches in the league, so it seems that they are finding their winning form. So, our prediction is for Penarol to win by at least two goals, but you can try a straight win if you don’t mind the odds and want a safer bet.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

It’s been a toss up between over and under when it comes to our prediction for this match, but we chose to go with under 2.5 total goals since both teams are not playing high-scoring game often. In fact, Penarol is averaging 2.00 goals per match in the league, while Villa Espanola has averaged 2.29 goals per game. With that in mind, under 2.5 total goals sounds like a reasonable bet.

Both Teams to Score – No

Since we don’t expect to see many goals here, we also don’t see both teams scoring in this one. In fact, we suggest betting on Penarol to win to nil if you want better odds. In any case, Villa Espanola scored in just three of their first seven games, while both teams have scored in just two of the first seven games played by Penarol.

Penarol vs Villa Espanola preview: Can Villa Espanola win their first game?

The home team is undefeated after seven rounds, while Villa Espanola is without a win still. So, it’s clear who the favourite is, but let’s take a closer look at the teams ahead of their upcoming duel.

Penarol

The team that finished last season in the third place in the aggregate standings has started the new Apertura in Primera Division in a similar pace. In the first seven games of the season, Penarol is still undefeated, but they have also won just three of those seven games. In any case, that is enough for the fourth place in the standings, but Penarol could keep climbing if they can beat Villa Espanola, which would be their third win in a row.

Villa Espanola

After seven rounds in the Uruguayan Apertura, Villa Espanola is still looking for their first win of the season. The team is sitting at the very bottom of the standings with two draws and five losses, so it’s clear that they will be hoping for better performances in the rest of the Apertura. In any case, the newly-promoted team is one of the main candidates for relegation and they will have to show much more than they did so far to avoid it.
