Nacional take on the visitors Internacional in the round 5 match of Copa Libertadores group stage. The match will be played on Thursday, June 8th at Gran Parque Central (Montevideo).
Nacional are not against achieving a prestigious milestone this season, but they also haven't forgotten about the Copa. The "Bolsos" are considered one of the best clubs in Uruguay, not only in a historical retrospective but also at present. They secured the "gold" in 2019, 2020, and 2022, bringing their total number of titles to 49. In the new cycle, they will strive to win another trophy, although it won't be easy, especially with Liverpool Montevideo as their strong contender. In the Copa Libertadores, Nacional had a powerful start with two victories against Metropolitanos and Independiente Medellin, but since then, they only managed a draw against the Brazilians and suffered a 1-2 defeat in Colombia.

Internacional have been alternating between good and unsuccessful results recently. The "Colorados" had a strong start to this century, even winning the Copa Libertadores multiple times. However, in 2016, they faced the shame of relegation to Serie B. They quickly returned from there and even managed to secure top placements in the Brasileirao three times. But their finishes in the top three were followed by noticeable declines. Currently, the vice-champion of last year has slipped beyond the top 10 in the current table and was eliminated from the cup by penalty shootout against America Mineiro. However, Internacional has performed well in the Copa Libertadores. They have a mix of victories (although both times against Venezuelan Metropolitanos) and draws. The next victory will be decisive.
A total of 9 matches have been played, all within the framework of the Copa Libertadores. Nacional has only won once, while losing 5 times to Brazilian teams. However, in this cycle, Internacional settled for a 2-2 draw at home. Expect a highly entertaining and evenly contested match. Under these conditions, betting on "both teams to score" seems reasonable.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score.
