Nacional will welcome River Plate to Estadio Gran Parque Central for a matchday 9 fixture in Uruguay Primera División. The last meeting on 4th December 2021 ended in a Nacional 4-2 win. Both sides have met twenty-two times in the most recent seasons. Nacional has won 12 matches, and River Plate triumphed in 5. Recent outings average 2.82 goals, while both teams score 50% of the time.
Nacional’s latest fixture against Boston River ended in an away 6-0 win. Bolsilludo was very effective while counter-attacking. In the end, it was enough to make the difference between the two teams. Nacional scored in both halves in the 1st, 15th, 45th, 63rd, 81st and 83rd minute.
River Plate’s recent game against Albion ended in a home 4-1 win. Darseneros dominated the game and deserved the win. River Plate had good chances in both halves and scored in the 1st, 7th, 77th and 85th minute.
So far, Albos plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.75 points per away game on average compared to 1.25 points at home. Bolso’s good defensive display is key to their success. They didn’t concede in 50% of home games.
River Plate has picked up 10 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. River Plate wins 1.50 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Bolsilludo is currently unbeaten at home in three games. Since the start of the season, they have lost at home on just one occasion.
Darseneros is winless in one away game, having tasted defeat on their previous visit. However, they will need plenty of luck to avoid another one against Bolsilludo.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory.My prediction is Nacional to win.
I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.5 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 38% of Nacional’s home and River Plate’s away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.
Both sides are dangerous going forward. Nacional has scored in 75% of home games. River Plate is a decent match and has scored in all away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
