Season ticket holders at Estadio Luís Alfonso Giagni haven’t seen too many victories this season, with Sol de América languishing in the 9th position so far. The guesting Nacional Asunción will be hopeful to defend their higher league position in this one.

Insights:
  • Sol de América have the most dropped points from leading position (7) in Division 1
  • Nacional Asunción have scored at least twice as many goals as they have conceded away.

It’s a hectic schedule for the away team, as they were in action only four days ago in the Copa Sudamericana.

These teams are located so close to each other that their supporters eat in the same restaurants, hang out at the same night clubs and give birth at the same hospitals. This means added importance to the game and a vibrant atmosphere.
