Banfield vs Nacional: Being a traditional Argentinian team, Banfield is one step away from returning to the Copa Libertadores’ group stage
And for that, they need to eliminate Nacional from Uruguay and they know that their best chance is if they win the 1st leg at home, where they are very strong and will count with the packed stands to impose pressure on the visitors.
Banfield has great players on their roster and they are on a good moment of form, like the experienced Dátolo and Mouche, who are used to playing in these important matches and should take on the responsibility to score goals tonight.
Nacional: Also with a lot of tradition, Nacional from Uruguay has eliminated Chapecoense on the previous round with two 1-0 wins.
But their performance wasn’t very impressive, since Chape has a very limited team and was still superior to the Uruguayans during the entirety of the 1st leg and a good portion of the 2nd leg, when they needed to get a positive result.
Nacional has a very experienced roster, but they don’t count with players in great moments of form, and I don’t know if the experience alone will be enough to hold off the Argentinians’ momentum.
Banfield vs Nacional – Betting Tip and Prediction:
We know that the home advantage is very important in the Copa Libertadores, even more between two traditional teams, and since Nacional have shown some weaknesses on the encounters against Chape and Banfield is on a good moment form.
I prefer to go with the -0.25 handicap favouring Banfield tonight.
