Guaraní and Sportivo San Lorenzo measure forces at Estadio Rogelio Lorenzo Livieres, in a match for the 1st round of the Professional Division. In this stadium, the history of direct confrontations is favorable to the home team, which records 2 wins and 1 draw in the last 3 games.

The goals of the match were scored by C. Báez (5 ‘), F. Fernández (12’) and J. Ortigoza (82 ‘), for Guaraní, and C. Paredes (90′), for Sportivo San Lorenzo. In this match the home factor may be decisive, since both teams have considerable differences in the results won at home and as a visitor.
This is the first game in this edition of the house team competition, which finished the previous edition in the 4th position. This is a team that curiously has been stronger as a visitor than in their home games, since in the last 30 matches it records 6 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses as a visitor; against 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses in his stadium. In the last match he played, for the Professional Division, he lost to the National Assumption at home by (0-5). In its last 10 home games the Guaraní records 4 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses. His defense has not been very solid, since he suffered goals in 8 of the last 10 games. In 15 games, he suffered the first goal 6 times and only got 1 comeback. In the last 20 home games for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: he scored 12 of his 33 goals between minutes (76’ ‑ 90 ‘).
The season is about to begin and the Guaraní has already defined its path. The team, once again, wants to be among the top four in the general table, so it intends to be regular from now on. As he will play at home in the debut, the probability of winning increases and he certainly does not want to stumble. Therefore, it is expected to act with attitude and without errors, since this way you can approach the three points. Of course, there must be respect for his rival, as he has his own interests, but it is in front of his fans that he will play. Therefore, you must impose yourself and not make mistakes if you want to eliminate the risks of being surprised. In this match, the best players available will be on the field.
