Nacional (Montevideo) lost the league title last season

“Pockets” proved to be the strongest club in the country 48 times. Including managing to take 1st place in both 2019 and 2020. But last season, the grand slam finished only 2nd, with Peñarol higher up. By the way, even now, Pablo Repetto’s side have a bad start in the Primera and are still stuck in the middle of the table. And, most importantly, not the best results in the Copa Libertadores (where, by the way, the Uruguayans have won three times). In four games they managed to win only once, namely away against Velez Sarsfield, and pick up four points. However, now it’s a home game against the worst club in the quartet – when to take the maximum, if not in this meeting?

Velez Sarsfield are unimpressive even now

The Fortics are memorable because Jose Luis Chilavert played here and were coached by Carlos Bianchi and Marcelo Bielsa. Now there also seems to be a sensible coach, Mauricio Pelegrino, with experience of working in the top leagues of the Old World, and a fairly promising squad. But the results continue to be quite mediocre. There is a risk of not reaching the play-offs of the Diego Maradona Trophy, where the top 4 clubs from both groups will each go. And the main failure was suffered by the Argentines in this Copa Libertadores. Remarkably, both games against the Brazilians, the Red Bull Bragantino, were draws. But in doing so, Velez Sarsfield have managed to lose both to Estudiantes in La Plata and, most importantly, to Nacional at home. A new misfire will be fatal, moreover, the visitors now need to fight for a win.

Previous Matches

The first time the teams played each other was a decade and a half ago, in 2007. The Nacional were also stronger then, 1-1 away and 2-0 in Montevideo.

Match prediction

Velez Sarsfield are flat out failing in this Copa draw. And if they beat the Argentines away, then Nacional should do so at home as well. But we’ll take our chances with a zero handicap (odds 1.69).
