Atletico Mineiro and Deportes Tolima are both in contention to make the play-offs in the Libertadores Cup. However, while the hosts are unlikely to move any further than first place, the visitors could well drop to third place and qualify for South America’s second most important international club tournament. Full statistics and current odds for the match can be found at 1xbet.ng app download.
The Brazilian team did not lose once in their five matches in the group stage, but managed to win only three times. However, Atletico are highly likely to remain in first place, as they will only lose in their next match by a margin of three goals or more. Of course, this is an extremely unlikely scenario. Interestingly, there are some good acquaintances in the Mineiro squad – Diego Godin, Hulk and Otávio (ex-Bordeaux).
The Colombians can either quietly qualify for the Libertadores Cup play-offs or drop into the South American Cup. In theory, Tolima could even squeeze out of the top spot, but to do so they would need to beat the group leader on the road. But for Deportes, it is more important not to lose their current position in second place. For that, the club will only need to avoid losing. But if they do, and Independiente del Valle beat the weakest team in the quartet, America Mineiro, then the Colombians will drop to third place.
In the first leg, Atlético Mineiro won comfortably 2-0, scoring a goal at the end of each half. And Deportes Tolima played decently and were good. But the Brazilians made the most of their chances, which is why they got three points.
The hosts have lost only one match in their last 24 games, while the visitors are on a ten-game unbeaten streak. “Atletico Mineiro lost quite unexpectedly a couple of weeks ago to America, but in the Brazilian championship, followed by a draw and then three straight wins. In general, fans certainly do not have to worry about the team’s current form.
Bet: Heads-up 1 (-1)
