In the match of the 5th round of the group stage of the Copa Libertadores, the Uruguayan “Nacional” will host the Argentine “Veles Sarsfield”. The meeting will take place at the “Grand Park” in Montevideo.
Representatives of Montevideo occupy the 3rd place in table C. In 4 rounds, they scored 4 points thanks to one win and one draw.
Nacional was able to get a point in a goalless draw with the leader of the quartet Estudiantes and score 3 points in the match with Vélez Sarsfield.
The third line allows the hosts to qualify for the playoffs of the Copa Sudamericana, however, if they win the remaining 2 matches, they will have a good chance of reaching the playoffs of the Copa.
In the last match of the tournament, the Tricolors lost to Estudiantes (0:1), and then won two championship victories – 1:0 with Phoenix and 2:0 with Defensor.
The guests do not have a single victory at this stage of the tournament. They have 2 points to their credit only thanks to draws.
As a result, “Veles” is unlikely to shine in the playoffs in the Kopa, but you can still get into the tournament with a lower rank. If Vélez wins, they will overtake Nacional in the table and take their third place.
After the defeat from Veles, the team got a point in the game with the second team of the Bragantino table. At the same time, the Argentines were leading up to 84 minutes.
In their last match, Veles beat Colon Santa Fe away in the Pro League Cup match.
