Nacional vs Real Garcilaso
South America – Copa Libertadores
Date: Wednesday, 25 April 2018
Kick-Off at 23:15 UK
Venue: Estadio Gran Parque Central (Montevideo).
Nacional made their way to the last 16 round in the precious term, but they’ll have a mountain to climb in order to match such an accomplishment tis time out, The Uruguayans picked up just two points from three opening games in the Group 6 and they have an imperative to clinch the spoils on Wednesday evening when they play group’s underdogs Real Garcilaso.
Nonetheless, the Peruvians proved they can be a tough nut to crack on their day as Tabare Silva’s side clinched four points so far. They kept clean sheet against both Santos and Nacional and they have realistic chances of shocking everyone and making it to the knockout phase from such a complicated group.
They had a great chance to clinch a massive three-pointer last time out, but they just could not break the deadlock past Nacional in spite of being much better side on the court.
Nacional vs Real Garcilaso: Head-to-head
This will be the fourth head to head encounter between Nacional and Real Garcilaso.
None of past three H2H games saw more than one goal (only two in total).
They met in the last 16 round of Cop Libertadores back in 2013 when Real Garcilaso advanced on penalties after both teams snatched narrow home wins (1-0).
Nacional vs Real Garcilaso: Prediction
The visitors from Garcilaso won’t come into this in high spirits. They conceded as many as five goals in last two league games, including three in the weekend’s demolishing loss to the table-toppers Sport Huancayo who are now as many as six points away from them in the Peruvian Primera Division standings.
Additionally, Real Garcilaso have a devastating record in away fixtures in Copa Liberators. They scored just one goal during the five-loss run on travels in the most elite continental competition. Given they are now up against Nacional who shipped just one in last seven games in all competitions, we have to back the Uruguayans to keep a clean sheet here at the odds of 1.72.
Under 2.5 goals FT should be a genuine banker if we take a look at both the H2H trend as well as the current form. The bookies will pay 1.50 for such scenario.
