Atletico Goianiense vs. Nacional

The quarterfinals of the Copa Sudamericana showed that surprises are the order of the day and that the candidates to win the title could be eliminated with ninety minutes to go and the revenge matches. A clear example of this situation is that of Nacional, who must travel to Brazil in search of the epic to beat Atlético Goianiense by two goals or force penalties.

On the one hand, Dragao gave one of the blows in the quarterfinals of the Copa Sudamericana after winning 1-0 in Uruguay against Nacional, against all sports forecasts. The table is set for the Brazilian team to be among the best four teams in the competition, although they should not relax considering that the difference is minimal.

For its part, Nacional had the party prepared for its people and after the arrival of Luis Suárez to the Bag, the scenario was ideal to keep the three points and direct the classification to the semifinals. However, Nacional was surprised and left empty-handed, so now they must travel to Brazil in search of a comeback.

The historic player of the Brazilian soccer team, Jorginho, knows sporting glory up close. And after his successful passage as a player, he begins to replicate the hierarchy as technical director at Atlético Goianiense.

So far, Dragao would be qualifying for the Copa Sudamericana semifinals despite not being the clear favorite in sports forecasts for facing a historic Uruguayan Nacional. However, background doesn't matter in football and Goianiense stepped up as a visitor after a 1-0 as close as it deserved.

Previously, Goianiense had led group F with 13 points in six games played after four wins, one draw and one loss. In addition, at that time Dragao scored eleven goals and received only five goals.

In their debut, Goianiense thrashed Liga de Quito 4-0, beat Defense and Justice 1-0 away, lost 2-1 against Antofagasta, triumphed again Defense and Justice 3-2, beat Antofagasta 1-0 and tied 1-1 against Liga de Quito on the last day.

Already in the round of 16, Goianiense had to suffer to beat Olimpia from Paraguay after a 2-0 loss in Paraguay and the same favorable result in Brazil that forced them to define on penalties where the Brazilians won 5-3.

On the other hand, Goianiense shows the other side of the coin in the Brasileirao in the penultimate position of the standings with 17 points in 20 days, remaining in the relegation zone.

Pablo Repetto and his team cannot get out of their astonishment after the unexpected defeat in sports betting against Goianiense. It is that the arrival of Luis Suárez to the Bag had become one of the most important emotional boosts for one of the two most historic clubs in Uruguay.

However, Nacional did not stand up to their people and the adverse 0-1 turned into a headache ahead of the rematch in Brazil. Now, Nacional will be forced to go out looking for the goal from the start without neglecting their goal to level the series or force penalties.

It is worth remembering that Nacional advanced to the round of 16 of the Copa Sudamericana after occupying third place in Group C of the Copa Libertadores de América, a main objective that could not be fulfilled.

At that time, Nacional had garnered only seven points in six games played with two wins, one draw and three losses, finishing behind Estudiantes and Vélez.

Nacional lost 2-0 against Bragantino, drew goalless against Estudiantes, defeated Vélez 2-1, as a visitor, lost 1-0 against Estudiantes, 2-3 against Estudiantes and thrashed Bragantino 3-0.

Already in the round of 16 of the Copa Sudamericana, Nacional faced the always difficult Unión de Santa Fe, beating 2-0 in Uruguay and 2-1 in Santa Fe.
