The first leg was for Nacional

Nacional took the three points this Wednesday during its visit to Puerto Cabello, within the framework of key 6 of the CONMEBOL – Copa Libertadores 2024 tournament. The first goal came in the 11th minute of the first half through Lucas Sanabria. Then, Osinachi Ebere sealed the victory from twelve steps for Nacional in the 41st minute of the same stage.

Álvaro Recoba’s team created danger with a shot from Lucas Sanabria, 54 minutes into the second stage, which ended up hitting one of the posts.

The best player of the match was Lucas Sanabria. The Nacional midfielder scored 1 goal, made 46 key passes and looked for the opponent’s goal 3 times.

Diego Polenta was also key. The Nacional defender had a good level for removing 3 balls and clearing 2 dangerous balls.

The process of the match was highly contested, with few spaces for game creation. There were a large number of reprimands: Osinachi Ebere, Gonzalo Carneiro, Facundo Cobos, Jimmy Congo, Richard Celis, Alexis Castro. Richard Celis was sent off after receiving his second yellow card, in the 50th minute of the second half.

Puerto Cabello coach Noel Sanvicente proposed a 4-4-2 formation with Giancarlo Schiavone in goal; Kendrys Silva, Carlos Rivero, Christian Moreno and Facundo Cobos on the defensive line; Miku, Jimmy Congo, Federico Bravo and Rubén Rojas in the middle; and Richard Celis and Stevy Okitokandjo in attack.

For its part, Álvaro Recoba’s team took the field with a 4-5-1 formation with Luis Mejía between the three sticks; Leandro Lozano, Juan Izquierdo, Diego Polenta and Gabriel Báez in defense; Lucas Sanabria, Alexis Castro, Antonio Galeano, Mauricio Pereyra and Osinachi Ebere in the midfield; and Gonzalo Carneiro up front.

Braulio Da Silva Machado was the referee who directed the match at the Misael Delgado stadium.

The victory achieved this Wednesday allows Nacional to arrive with some peace of mind to face Puerto Cabello next Wednesday, February 28, in the match that will define the passage to the Third Phase.
