Liverpool, a failure and a dream

East of the 2021 season he discovers again that when his aspirations to retain the Uruguayan Championship title and win the three-time championship seemed reduced to a miracle, finally the options for that miracle to happen.

Peñarol’s downturn (he lost six of the last nine points he played, after adding his third consecutive draw) and a pending ruling on the first date of the match against Cerro Largo, places the tricolores in the uncertainty that this Monday or Friday When the Appeals Commission announces its decision, it can be found first in the Closing and Annual tables.

For that, something has to happen that Nacional could not sustain regularly in this last tournament, win this Friday afternoon against in Belvedere, and that the court give him the victory on the first date. On the Goyenola Stadium court they equaled 1-1, but a complaint that Cerro Largo’s coach, Danielo Núñez, could have participated at halftime when he was suspended, generates the expectation in the tricolor of achieving victory at the desks.

The Clausura standings until this Thursday, after Cerrito’s triumph over Deportivo Maldonado and the draw between Peñarol and Progreso, was like this:

If the court gives the three points to Nacional and removes the unity of the tie from Cerro Largo, the table will remain like this, with the three points below the leader Peñarol:

Meanwhile, the Annual table until this Thursday is like this:

And it could be this way if the court gives the victory to the albos:

With this uncertainty, the dispute is completed on the penultimate date of the Clausura Tournament, which keeps Peñarol at the forefront, for the moment.

For Nacional, the game that he will play against Liverpool in Belvedere this Friday at 4.30 pm offers a reward that he would never have imagined three dates ago.

In the event that the tricolor win over the black-blue ones and the court gives them the triumph, they will be first in the Annual Table in a solitary way.

Outside the field of possible scenarios, Nacional this afternoon has a commitment to its fans and that goes through once again showing that they are going to fight until the end of the season, even when their performances are deficient in football, although productively successful, as in his last presentation against Cerrito, when a heart above the game ended up winning the hour.

Those led by Martín Ligüera won three of their last four games, against City Torque (2-0), Villa Española (2-1) and Cerrito (1-0), and regrets the defeat they suffered on date 12 against Villa Española (0-1).

What Nacional has not achieved in the 13 games it has played so far is a good performance and its game is reduced to individual actions that can direct Nacional’s football to reach the rival goal, the balls that they send from the bottom to the head of Bergessio or the runs of Leandro Fernández, or the still balls.

Everything he lacks in football he makes up for with the attitude of a team that showed its character by its mental disposition to prevail on the field.
