Nacional Potosi vs Fluminense: Preview and Predictions

Nacional Potosi vs Fluminense
Copa Sudamericana
Date: Friday, 11 May 2018
Kick-Off at 01:45 UK / 02:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Victor Agustin Ugarte, Potosi.

Fluminense gained a huge lead after the first leg of the opening round in the new Copa Sudamericana season. The Brazilians confirmed the gap in quality over Nacional Potosi, beating them 3-0 in the first leg played exactly a month ago at Estadio Maracana.

Even though most teams from the rest of the continent generally have troubles playing at the high altitude in Potosi, a true miracle should happen for Tricolor to drop out such a massive cushion here. Abel Braga can generally be satisfied with his team’s form at the start of the season in Serie A as well, since Fluminense climbed up to seventh place in the league ladder claiming seven points in last three rounds.

Pedro is the man who inspired the good run as he was usually the one responsible for the finishing touch in Fluminense’s successes. He bagged two goals in four league games so far as well as one of team’s three in the mentioned thumping of Nacional Potosi in the first match of the Copa Sudamericana tie.

Nacional Potosi vs Fluminense: Head-to-head

This will only be the second head to head tie between Nacional Potosi and Fluminense, following the one played a month ago at Maracana.

As described above, Tricolor snatched a demolishing 3-0 victory thanks to goals from Pedro, Pablo Dyego and Gum.

Nacional Potosi vs Fluminense: Prediction

Nacional Potosi just don’t seem able to keep things quiet at the back these days. They lost four of last five games in all competitions conceding two or more in each of last six outings. Given they are up against Fluminense’s in-form attacking line, we would not be surprised to see the Brazilians scoring multiple goals once again here. The value is huge in backing the visitors to win at 4.75.

You can also back the visitors to net two or more goals at 3.50 as well as goals at both ends at 1.80. Fluminense or Draw Double Chance does not look to be a poor call either at the 2.15 odds.
