Crouching: Rubén Bustos , Luis Noble , Carlos Franco , Jorge Armúa, Julio Correa.
Huracan Buceo rarely played First Division football, so they may had been happy to just remain in the league.
Abajo :Daniel Aparicio Godoy , José Moreira, Roberto Roo , Julio Noble, Carlos Luthar.
Yet, Danubio deserves a note – they were steadily progressing. So far, not very great, solid performances, and keeping their ground. National team players emerged from the club, most importantly young talent: 4 of their players were in the Uruguayan Under-19 national team winning the South Amwerican juvenil championship – Daniel Martinez, Nelson Alaguich, Ricardo Viera, and Roberto Roo. Danubio was on its way to becoming major factor in Uruguayan football – on its way, but still at the beginning of the road.
Defensor Sporting clinched the top of the bulk - 4th place. Not bad – the surprize champions of 1976, disturbing the duopoly ruling Uruguayan football, were apparently consistent. The team was pretty much the same as in 1976, but it was not a squad with enough class.
That was pretty much the general picture of the league.
