City Torque to Win

The guests are simply the better team of the two and they are in much better form, despite their two losses in the previous two rounds. After all, Villa Espanola is still without a win after eight games have passed in Apertura and we don’t see them getting a positive result against the team that was fourth in the aggregate standings last season. Furthermore, Villa Espanola lost the last three duels against City Torque.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Only one of the previous four matches played between Villa Espanola and City Torque have gone under 2.5 total goals, so we expect the same thing to happen on Saturday. In addition to this, both teams average 2.25 goals per game this season, so it makes sense to bet on a low-scoring game.

Both Teams to Score – No

Since we don’t expect to see many goals in this match, we also don’t expect both teams to score. After all, both teams have scored in just 38% of City Torque matches in the league this season, while the same is true for 50% of the matches played by Villa Espanola. Additionally, both teams have scored in just one of their last five h2h meetings.

Villa Espanola vs Torque City preview: Can Villa Espanola get their first win?

While the home team is struggling in the league, the guests are doing well, so let’s take a more detailed look at both teams ahead of their upcoming duel.

Villa Espanola

After eight rounds in Apertura, Villa Espanola is without a win still and sitting at the bottom of the standings with just three draws and five losses. So, it seems obvious at this point that they are one of the candidates for relegation at the end of Primera Division and that they will have to perform at a much higher level if they want to avoid relegation.

Torque City

The team that finished fourth in the Uruguayan Primera Division last year has been a bit inconsistent in the new season, but they are not that far from those results. After they lost their first two games, City Torque has gotten into a bit of a rhythm with four straight wins. However, they broke that streak with a couple of losses in the last two rounds and they’ll be looking for an opportunity to get back to the winning track.
