Paraguay Primera Division, Clausura
Tacuary is suffering one of their worst seasons in quite a while, and by the looks of it, they will have serious troubles avoiding relegation in the next two seasons, unless they improve their play big time. They are safe for the moment, as Trinidense, Sport Colombia and 3 de Febrero have much poorer 'promedios', so the season can be as good as over for Tacuary, without any immediate objective. Not the same can be said about Nacional, who despite being 9 points behind the leaders Libertad and Cerro Porteno, they are still hopeful they can close the gap, or at least go for a Sudamericana qualifying spot, and that's the most realistic objective they can set, as they are just 4 points behind Olimpia. While not having a great season, Nacional shouldn't have any problems tonight, against their favorite sparring partners, Tacuary. In the last two years, Nacional and Tacuary faced each other 6 times, with Nacional winning 5 of them, and the scoreline usually goes high (they recorded two 4-0 wins, and another 3-0 win). Quality is on Nacional's side tonight, and with such recent dreadful performances from Tacuary (who despite having 2 wins in Clausura, they came against equally poor teams: 3 de Febrero and Sport Colombia), I'd be surprised if they won't lose by at least 3 goals. GL!
