Luis Suárez put the icing on the cake in Nacional's 3-0 win over Rentistas, the first since his return to the Uruguayan club, but he wasted a penalty that could have increased the advantage at the beginning of the second day of the Torneo Clausura.
At 59 minutes, 14 minutes after jumping onto the pitch at the Gran Parque Central stadium, the striker took advantage of a cross from Brian Ocampo and scored the Tricolor's third goal with a powerful header.

Right away, number 9 celebrated with his teammates and greeted his daughter Delfina, who was celebrating her birthday this Friday.
El first missed penalty after his return to Nacional
About the end of the game, when Nacional won 3-0 thanks to the goals converted by José Luis Rodríguez, Juan Ignacio Ramírez and Suárez, the group led by Pablo Repetto had a penalty in favor of a handball by Fabricio Buschiazzo.
'El Pistolero' took the ball and immediately the vast majority of fans took their cell phones to record the moment. However, the goalkeeper Lucas Machado, who was playing his first game for Rentistas on this day, became the villain of number 9 by stopping his shot.
Later, in front of a spectacular pirouette by Suárez, the number 12 flew and again drowned out the celebration of the scorer, who greeted him.
In this way, Nacional achieved its first victory in the Closing Tournament and ensured that it remained first in the accumulated Annual Table.
