Fútbol paraguayo, Apertura 2012: Week 20 Preview

Penultimate weekend of the Apertura (with a round of games scheduled for midweek) and a win for Olimpia on Saturday against Sol de América will mean they can secure the title before the superclásico. Carapeguá and Cerro de Franco will be desperate to try and earn more points to help stave of relegation while Luque and Tacuary have also found themselves dragged into the mire.

Nacional vs Independiente
Estadio Arsenio Erico
Prediction: 2-1

Nacional will be smarting from the 5-0 thumping handed out to them by Cerro de Franco on Tuesday, they also face an in form Independiente side who are now unbeaten in seven games following their 1-0 win over Rubio Ñu. However Nacional have usually prevailed against ‘smaller’ sides at home just like they did last weekend against Carapeguá. I think they can overcome Independiente but it will be close.

BEST BET: With the home win by no means a certainty you might want to look into Over 2.5 goals  (1,67) – games involving these sides have averaged 3.05 so far this season only Sol de América (3.2) have seen more goals on average in their matches.

Rubio Ñu vs Luque
Estadio La Arboleda
30/06/2012, 15:00
Prediction: 2-0

Luque preparing to visit Rubio Ñu 

Rubio Ñu are playing so badly they couldn’t even give their new manager, Blas Cristaldo, a win last week. Luque too are in disarray, increased fan violence (a knife was thrown onto the pitch) has seen them banned from their home stadium for the two fixtures after this game and the hooligan element sent a death threat to the head of referee’s this week. On the field Luque just aren’t scoring, only hapless Tacuary have less goals, and with defenders Ronald Huth and Claudio Vargas suspended it tips the scales in favour of the albiverde.

Sol de América vs Olimpia

Estadio Defensores del Chaco
30/06/2012, 17:30
Prediction: 1-2

L-R José Ortigoza, Enzo Prono, Lorenzo Frutos – the league’s highest scorers Sol de América 

Sol de América are the form side in the league and have the division’s most profitable partnership in José Ortigoza and Enzo Prono (21 goals between them) and they always give Olimpia a good game. However, they usually give them a good game then lose as has been the case in the previous five meetings. El Decano on the other hand can smell the title, their front three are playing very well and will be hugely motivated by the possibility to wrap up the title this weekend (if they win and Cerro lose). I can only see the nominal away side (game being played in national stadium in front of Olimpia fans) winning this.

Fútbol paraguayo

The political crisis in Paraguay meant Week 19′s games were moved from the weekend to Tuesday and Wednesday presuambly to avoid any crowd trouble. The major game’s are of course those at the top of the table, Cerro Porteño take on whipping boys Tacuary while Olimpia and Guaraní meet in the clásico añejo the oldest rivalry in Paraguayan football.

Cerro Porteno – Tacuary

Huge quality difference here. Cerro porteno fight for for title, fights to won apertura. They loose last game against good Libertad but played really good, if they played half like that they will beat Tacuary easly. he only big miss is Diego Barreto, the goalkeeper is still suffering dizziness after colliding with the upright against Nacional, Pablo Gavilán will continue and was a bit uncertain at times.

On the other side convincingly worst team in league, won just one game in 18 rounds and, scored just 12 goals, week defence, poor away (just 2 points). I bet last round on Olimpia (against them) and made big suprise, they took them points (0-0). Man of the match was their goalkeeper. Cerro has good attack and i belive Tacuary can twice in a row suprise.

 Sportivo Luqueño –  Guaraní  ah0 guarani @ 1,95 

Luque’s new coach Carlos Kiese has had time to get to know his squad in the break and has called up several youth team players because of the lack of quality he’s found. The auriazulhave won just one of their last five games. For Guaraní goals have been hard to come by this season but the side have only lost one in their last five games and keep getting better as time goes on under coach Pablo Caballero. They will have five players returning from La Paz none of whom played against Bolivia so they should benefit from having  trained intensively at altitude for a month. The aborigen are a better side and historically play well here, so it looks like an away win for them to stretch unbeaten streak away from home to four games.

Sol de América – Tacuary  -1ah sol @ 2,0

Sol de América could be missing topscorer José Ortigoza, other than that they have a clean bill of health with striker Lorenzo Frutos back from long-term injury and likely to resume his partnership with Enzo Prono up front. Before the break Sol were on a good run having recorded three consecutive wins. Tacuary needed this break more than any team, just eight points from their first 16 games this it is hard to understand what has happened to the team that qualified for the Copa Sudamericana last year. When these two met earlier in the year Sol won 6-2 having raced to a four-goal lead in twenty minutes, it won’t be as easy this time but they will win.
