The 14th round of the closing tournament of football is set to unfold from Saturday to Monday, in what could be a decisive turn of events. Liverpool stands on the precipice of being crowned champions, with all eyes set on their performance. The matches, spread across three days, offer sports fans multiple opportunities to follow the competitions and support their favourite teams.
Liverpool on the Verge of Victory
Following their 2-0 triumph against Boston River, Liverpool is just one game away from securing the championship of the Uruguayan Closing Tournament. With a five-point lead over Racing, their nearest competitor, Liverpool could clinch the title as early as this Saturday. A win in the match against Deportivo Maldonado would seal their place in the final of the Uruguayan Championship.
Contributing to Liverpool's victory were key performances from Luciano Rodríguez, the champion of the U20 World Cup, and Thiago Vecino, who scored after an assist from Paraguayan Miguel Samudio. Leading with 29 points, Liverpool could be crowned champions with a victory. Their championship could even be confirmed earlier, depending on the outcome of the match between Peñarol and Racing.
Closing Stages of the Tournament
As the Closing Tournament draws to a close with just two rounds left, Liverpool and Peñarol are vying for the title and the not-so-insignificant Annual Table. Further down the table, Defensor Sporting and Nacional are battling for Uruguay's third and fourth spots in the Copa Libertadores. Below them lie the Copa Sudamericana qualification spots, and at the very bottom, the relegation table, which has already determined that Plaza Colonia will play in the B next year.
