Progreso to Win
Both teams have the same number of points after the first ten rounds and they are only one point ahead of the last team in the standings. So, this match could push one team a bit further from the very bottom of the league. We believe that it could be Progreso, despite the fact that Boston River is in a better form at the moment. However, Progreso is the home team and that’s why we are giving them advantage in our prediction.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
Even though only two of the last five head-to-head meetings between these two teams have gone over 2.5 total goals, our prediction is for that to happen in this game. Both teams have averaged 2.6 goals per game this season in the Uruguayan Apertura, so they should be able to combine for at least three goals in the match.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
Both teams have scored in 60% of all Progreso matches in the Uruguayan Primera Division this season, while the same is true for 70% of all Boston River matches in the league. In addition to this, both teams have scored in all five previous h2h meetings between these two teams, so this seems like a pretty safe bet.
With both teams in poor form this season, we expect to see a very close and unpredictable duel here. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at both teams.
After finishing in the 14th place in aggregate standings last season, Progreso seems to be going in the same direction this year as well. The team has been poor in Apertura so far, winning only seven points from the first ten games. In the last five games, Progreso has one win, two draws, and two losses, so that’s a bit of an upgrade compered to the first half of their Apertura season. But they still need to get a few more good results to stay away from relegation.
Just like their upcoming opponent, Boston River also has seven points from the first ten rounds in the Uruguayan Apertura. However, they have lost only one game of their last six, along with one win and four draws. This indicates that they are not in the worst form at the moment and that they could rise on the standings if they can keep this run going.
