The National Classic 327 between Municipal and Comunicaciones will take place this Saturday, November 18 at the Manuel Felipe Carrera “El Trébol” Stadium and will be another chapter in the intense rivalry between the two most successful soccer teams in Guatemala.

This Classic holds great importance for the final standings of the 2023 Apertura Tournament as both teams aim to secure a top position and advance to the final phase.

Throughout history, these teams have faced each other 326 times, with the most recent encounter taking place on May 7 of this year. On that occasion, Comunicaciones emerged victorious with a 1-0 win over Municipal, courtesy of a goal from Azarias Londoño.

This victory propelled Comunicaciones to the top of the Clausura 2023 standings, accumulating 45 points.

To find Municipal’s last triumph against their eternal rival, we have to go back to February 2, 2022, when a brace from Matías Rotondi sealed the match.

Since then, the red team has endured a winless streak of 7 matches against the albos, resulting in 5 losses and 2 draws.

Historical Balance between Municipal and Comunicaciones

Comunicaciones holds the upper hand in the upcoming Classic as the team with the most victories between the two, boasting 113 wins compared to Municipal’s 109. Additionally, they have drawn 104 times.

The match is scheduled to kick off at 3 p.m. on Saturday, November 18 at El Trébol, as a rescheduled fixture from matchday 12 of the Apertura 2023.
