RB Bragantino to Win
After reaching the final of Copa Sudamericana last season, RB Bragantino will now try to do equally well in Copa Libertadores, which is a much tougher task.
Their duel with Nacional in the first round of group stages can be tricky for then since Nacional is a good team, but Bragantino has the quality to claim the three points from this game.
RB Bragantino and Nacional to Draw at Half Time
As we said earlier, this can be a tricky game for the home team, especially since this will be their first truly competitive game this season since Brazilian Serie A is starting next weekend.
Meanwhile, Nacional already played six games in Uruguayan league, so they are probably in better shape. With that in mind, we can see the two teams being tied at half time.
Under 2.5 Total Goals
This will be the first-ever meeting between these two teams, so we don’t have any data from previous duels to help us project possible number of goals.
That being said, RB Bragantino has gone under 2.5 total goals in four of their last five matches in all competitions, and the same is true for Nacional as well. So, we expect this match to go under 2.5 total goals as well.
RB Bragantino vs Nacional preview: Home team to make debut in Copa Libertadores
Having Red Bull as your sponsor is clearly the recipe for sucess in football, as we can see on the example of RB Bragantino who went from lower leagues in Brazilian football to Copa Sudamericana final last season. Now they will also make their debut in Copa Libertadores after finishing sixth in Serie A last season and we expect them to do well.
One of the most popular Uruguayan clubs finished last season as second in both Apertura and Clausura, so they were also second in aggregate standings and they secured a spot in Copa Libertadores group stages thanks to it. Nacional started the new season in Uruguayan Apertura with seven points from nine matches, so they are not in the best of forms right now.
