Nacional with 3 wins in 3 games in the group are not giving importance to this game, more points will come at home next as the 2 fixtures in Montevideo look not hard. At the same time Apertura is close to finish, Nacional are 2nd a point behind Rentistas so the weekend game with Liverpool is the real one. For this reason most of the regulars are not travelling to Venezuela - the topscorer and captain Gonzalo Bergessio, Guzman Corujo, Paulo Vinicius, Agustin Oliveros, Gabriel Neves, Claudio Yacob and Santiago Rodriguez. Some others probably will start on the bench.
Estudiantes managed to turn Alianza Lima from 0-2 to 3-2 last week and will try to use their chance at least to continue for Copa Sudamericana. Their moment is not easy, no football played in Venezuela since 6 months but in this situation they should get point or three to keep Alianza behind.
