It's early days in the Liga Nacional and both Xelajú and Comunicaciones are still hoping for a flying start in order to set the tone for the season. Three points can make a big difference at this stage.

Both teams should be fairly well rested for this game, as they have had some quiet days to prepare. Hopefully this will translate into lots of action on the pitch.
