Defensor Sporting - El Tanque Sisley

Uruguay Primera Division, Clausura

This could be a great day for Defensor Sporting, as their fate in this championship is in their hands. A win today would make them the Clausura winners, thus earning a spot in the final of the league, and they could also become the new leaders in the Anual Standings, if Nacional fails to win. So really, everything is up to them, and I have high confidence in them being able to deliver the expected. They are on a roll currently, and their only absence in this game will be the lateral defender Pablo Pintos, who saw the red card in their last match. Other than that, nothing will change, and I don't see how a defensive absence would count too much against a team that will most likely defend throughout the match. El Tanque plays for nothing, as they are already safe from relegation. Nothing else for them this season, as they are far behind the places that qualify for a continental competition. They say they want to win, but they are quite a limited team, and they shouldn't pose too many problems to the title contenders. The line is quite high, and rightfully so, but Defensor should be more than able to cover it. GL!

Defensor (-1.5 AH) @ 2.05, 3/10
Result: 3-0, WON
