Guairena to Win

Both Guairena and Nacional are struggling at the start of the new season in the Paraguayan Apertura since Guairena is without a win in the first six games, while Nacional has five points.

However, Guairena won the first leg between these two teams and now they have an advantage of one goal for the second leg. However, we can see Guairena winning the second leg as well, especially since they’ve already beaten Nacional in four of their last five h2h duels.

Guairena and Nacional to Draw at Half Time

The game between Guairena and Nacional might very well end up in a win for the hosts, as we expect. However, we also think that it’s going to be a close game.

With that in mind, we can see the match being decided in the second half and the teams being tied at half time. After all, three of the previous five h2h meetings between Guairena and Nacional have been draws at half times.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Four of the previous five head-to-head meetings between Guairena and Nacional have gone under 2.5 total goals and we can see that being the case once again in their next game.

After all, Guairena averaged just 1.83 goals per game so far in their domestic league, while Nacional averaged 3.07 goals per game in the Paraguayan Apertura this season.

Guairena vs Nacional preview: Can Nacional overcome the deficit?


The team from Asuncion is not doing well at all at the start of the new Apertura in Paraguay since they have three draws and three losses after the first six rounds. This puts Guairena in the 11th spot in the standings in a league with 12 teams and that’s worrying. On the bright side, the team is entering the second leg of Copa Sudamericana qualifiers against Nacional with an advantage of one goal.


Similarly to their Copa Sudamericana qualifiers opponent, Nacional also didn’t have the best of starts in the Paraguayan Apertura, but the team at least managed to get one win in the first six rounds and collect five points. However, Nacional lost at home to Guairena in the first leg of Copa Sudamericana qualifiers, so now they will have a tough task in the rematch.
