Nacional Asunción form and stats

The story so far for the visiting team on their Division 1 travels is 3 wins, 5 draws and 1 defeat.

Nacional might have something to prove in this game as they lost at home in their previous match. Cerro Porteno proved too strong as Nacional Asunción slumped to a 1-5 defeat in front of their own fans at Estadio Arsenio Erico. As you can see from the result above, the defeat against Cerro Porteno was particularly ugly (1-5). The humiliation is still top of mind.

Preceding that game, the 0-0 draw paying a visit to Guairena.
