National vs. Union: to take advantage

The round of 16 of the South American Cup begins and there are more than interesting confrontations between candidates and surprises. Indeed, next Tuesday Nacional de Uruguay will receive Unión de Santa Fe at his home.

On the one hand, the bag of the technical director, Pablo Repetto, wants to ratify his candidacy in the sports predictions to advance to the phase and be the protagonist in the second most important tournament on the continent. To do this, he must take advantage of the Great Central Park that allows him to travel to Santa Fe comfortably.

For their part, Unión de Santa Fe was one of the revelations of the tournament and after culminating as leader in their group, they will now seek to repeat the blow against one of the rivals with the greatest history and background on the continent.

Last National matches

It is clear that the primary objective of Nacional was not fulfilled and the fans remain somewhat disappointed. It is that the Bag did not manage to qualify for the round of 16 of the Copa Libertadores and now he will have to settle for a good campaign in South America.

It is true that Nacional ran into a complicated group with Estudiantes de La Plata, Vélez and Bragantino. This is how little by little they fell by the wayside until they finished in third place, which allowed them to reach the round of 16 of the Copa Sudamericana, as sports forecasts anticipated.

Nacional debuted in the Copa Libertadores with a 2-0 loss against Bragantino, to later equalize goalless, at home, against Estudiantes de La Plata. Subsequently, they beat Vélez 2-1 as visitors, lost 1-0 against Estudiantes, lost at home to Vélez 3-2 and closed with a 3-0 win against Bragantino on the last day.

Indeed, Nacional garnered seven points in six games played with two wins, one draw and three falls with seven goals for and seven against.

On the other hand, in the domestic tournament, Nacional de Uruguay remains the leader of zone 2 with a perfect score, after two victories in the same number of matches. El Bolso beat Defensor Sporting 1-0 as a visitor on the first day and thrashed River Plate 3-0 on the second date.

It is clear that Nacional is a solid team in the double competition and was only one point away from qualifying for the round of 16 of the Copa Libertadores, despite the fact that they scored goals on the last date. Likewise, in the Uruguayan tournament he is still the main candidate to win the title along with City Torque, the other group leader.

Last Union matches

Gustavo Munúa and his team, achieved the objective of the first semester against all the sports bets that gave it as clearly eliminated. It is that Unión had to share a group with Fluminense, Junior from Barranquilla and Oriente Petrolero from Bolivia and, despite this, managed to prevail.

Subsequently, the Tatengue won 3-1 away against Oriente Petrolero, drew goalless against Fluminense in Brazil, defeated the Bolivian team 2-0 in Santa Fe, tied again 0-0 against the Brazilian team and closed their participation in Group H with a 4-0 win in Colombia against Junior.

On the other hand, in the Professional League, Unión arrives with a hard blow after the 5-1 loss against River Plate, at home. Previously, Unión had debuted with a painful 2-1 loss against Tigre, tied 2-2 in the Santa Fe classic against Colón and defeated Barracas Central 2-1 as a visitor. Indeed, the Tatengue is located at the bottom of the standings with just four points in the same number of games, with six goals scored and ten goals conceded.
