Nacional are in a rich vein of form, having won three of their first four matches while registering a goal difference of +8. They will also be boosted by the goal-scoring form of their Colombian international striker Dorlan Pabon, currently averaging a goal a game.
Deportes Tolima, based in Ibagué in the Tolima department, have also seen a solid start to their Apertura campaign, sitting only two points behind the league leaders. Nacional will be wary of this Saturday’s opponents, who won their first two games of the season.
Another game that promises excitement is the clash between two newly-promoted teams, fifth-placed Patriotas and Deportivo Pasto, sixth.
