Danubio vs. National: duel of the powerful

The Uruguayan tournament is more exciting than ever and the intermediate phase is looking for the two finalists of the contest. Indeed, next Sunday Danubio will host Nacional in an unmissable confrontation considering that they are two teams with a lot of history.

On the one hand, Danubio wants to find his first victory in the intermediate phase and although he does not have the sports forecasts in his favor, he will seek to keep the three points that will allow him to become the leader of group 2.

For its part, Nacional wants to continue at the top of the group and to do so they must add their second consecutive victory. In addition, you should not neglect your classification for the next edition of the Copa Libertadores.

Last Danubio matches

Marcelo Méndez's Strip wants to hit the sports predictions by staying with group 2 of the intermediate phase. And for this, he will have to improve his performance considering that Nacional and River Plate have already won in their first presentation and begin to escape from the rest of the teams.

So far, Danubio is in fourth place in the standings with one point after the draw on the first day against Cerro Largo, a team clearly inferior to La Franja, but who knew how to rescue a valuable point.

Previously, Danubio had finished Apertura 2022 in sixth place in the standings after collecting 24 points in 15 games played. At that time, La Franja had six wins, the same number of draws and just three losses with thirteen goals scored and nine conceded, which reflects some defensive weaknesses.

Danubio's last matches were as follows: they tied goalless against River Plate, away, defeated Cerro Largo 2-0, tied 0-0 against Fénix, lost 2-1 against Defensor Sporting, defeated by the same result Albion and Nacional, on the last day and against all the sports bets that gave him a clear loser. Subsequently, Danubio equalized against Cerro Largo, already in the intermediate phase of the contest.

It is worth noting that Danubio remains in sixth place in the general table and for now it would be achieving one of the goals set to qualify for the Copa Sudamericana. La Franja garnered 25 points in total with six wins, seven draws and three losses in 16 games played. To reach the Copa Libertadores zone, they must deduct the three points that Boston River and Deportivo Maldonado have, who have accumulated 28 points and today would be the last to enter the most important contest on the continent.

Last National matches

El Bolso is always one of the favorites during each season start, just like Peñarol. So far, the team led by Pablo Repetto remains one of the leaders of Group 2 along with River Plate, as they were the only ones who added three points at the start of the intermediate phase.

Nacional beat Defensor Sporting 1-0, as a visitor, showing passages of good football, although they also knew how to suffer to avoid a draw. Previously, Nacional had culminated as an escort for Liverpool in the Apertura Tournament after a very good campaign with 28 points obtained in 15 games played with eight wins, four draws and three losses. In addition, he converted 28 goals in favor of being the highest scoring team and one of the least scored with just 10 goals conceded.

The last clashes of Nacional in the local tournament were as follows: they defeated Cerro Largo 2-0 as a visitor in tune with sports betting, beat Fénix 1-0, 2-0 Defensor Sporting and Fénix, thrashed 3- 0 to Cerrito and fell 2-1 against Danubio, on the last day.

It is worth noting that Nacional is second in the general table with 31 points in 16 games played after nine wins, four draws and three losses. Likewise, he converted 29 goals and barely received ten.

Background between both

Danubio and Nacional played 41 matches in the Uruguayan league with 22 wins for the Purse, three draws and 16 wins for La Franja. Likewise, at the Jardines del Hipódromo stadium, 22 matches were played with 10 victories for each one and two draws.

One thing to keep in mind when making Uruguay League predictions is that the last clash between the two was a 2-1 victory for Danubio in this year's Apertura, where La Franja gave one of the biggest hits of the tournament.

Previously, Nacional and Danubio had more than emotional clashes such as the one that occurred during the Clausura 2020 tournament when the Strip won 2-1 against El Bolso. To find Nacional's last away win, you have to go back to the 2019 intermediate tournament when Nacional kept all three away points after a tight 2-1.

The magnifying glass on…

Nicolás Rodríguez is the main hope of La Franja considering that he was Danubio's top scorer in the Apertura 2022 tournament where he scored three goals. In addition, Fernández, Hernández and May accumulated two cries each and can unbalance at any time.

The magnifying glass on…

Felipe Carballo, Manuel Monzeglio and Franco Fagúndez are the favorites of the Uruguay League predictions to open the scoring against Danubio. This is because the three of them scored four goals each in the Apertura 2022 tournament. Likewise, Gigliotti and Zabala scored three goals each and can be a surprise.
