Nacional and Plaza Colonia to play out draw

On Sunday night, Nacional host Plaza Colonia in the Uruguayan Primera Division, as both teams look to kick-start their league campaigns.

Nacional have made a poor start to their league campaign, picking up just three points in their first five matches in the Primera Division. The home side has failed to win in any of opening five league games. In fact, they have won just one of their last ten matches in the Uruguayan top-flight dating back to last season.

A 2-0 defeat last time out in the league means that Nacional have now conceded at least two goals in three of their last four league matches.

Nacional have a poor recent home record in the Uruguayan top-flight, winning just one of their last six league matches on home soil. The home side has also kept just one clean sheet in their last six home outings in the Uruguayan top-flight.

Plaza Colonia have experienced a mixed start to life back in the Primera Division. However, the visitors have picked up four points from their last two league outings. Last time out they recorded a 1-0 home win over River Plate.

The win last time out means that six of their last seven league matches spanning two spells in the top-flight have produced under 2.5 goals.

Plaza Colonia have a poor away record in recent seasons in the Primera Division, winning just one of their last 18 league matches on their travels, including failing to win in their last 11 away games in Uruguayan top-flight.

The visitors have struggled to keep the opposition out on their travels in the Primera Division, keeping just one clean sheet in their last 14 away games in the Uruguayan top-flight.

Neither team has started the campaign in great form, so unsurprisingly, Forebet is predicting that this clash will finish in a low scoring draw.
