Paraguay Primera Division, Apertura
Same principle here as last week, in Sol's match against Nacional. The thing is, although they lost that match, they didn't play that well, and there were some emotions before the 2-0 and after the 2-1. Sol showed that they aren't a defensive team, and they like to come out and play. And that should also suit Libertad, who have the tendency to do better against teams that leave some spaces behind, instead of closing in defense. Libertad are one of the best teams in Paraguay, and their record in 2012 definitely proves that, as they have lost only one match (at high altitude, in Ecuador), otherwise winning 5 and drawing another 2. Those two draws have been their latest results, one of them after leading Guarani by 2-0, so a win is a must today. Especially since this is their last 'easy' game, before a death-run against Olimpia, Cerro Porteno and a double-meeting with Vasco da Gama for Libertadores. History is also on their side, as Libertad have won their last 10 consecutive matches played at Sol, not losing since 2003 (although Sol left the Primera Division between 2004-2007). There are some fitness gambles over the players that were called-up to the national team, but I doubt the starting 11 will change too much from their usual line-up. GL!
