Atletico Mineiro to Win

One Brazilian team at least will play in the Copa Libertadores final and while both Atletico Mineiro and Palmeiras deserve a place in the final game, only one of them will reach it. Our money is on Atletico Mineiro, which is why our first prediction for this match is for Atletico Mineiro to win. They’ve been in better form the entire season and while Palmeiras is right behind them in Serie A, they are behind by eight points. Also, Atletico Mineiro beat Palmeiras in their previous meeting as a host.

Atletico Mineiro and Palmeiras to Draw at Half Time

Two of the previous five head-to-head duels between these two teams have been draws at half times, while in another two we’ve seen goals in the stoppage time of the first half disrupt the equilibrium. Since this game will decide who gets to play in the Copa Libertadores final, we expect both teams to be focused on not conceding in the first half.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

We’ve seen two goals or less in four of the last five h2h duels between Atletico Mineiro and Palmeiras, including the scoreless draw in the first leg. So, there’s no reason to expect a lot of goals in the second leg, especially since it’s the deciding match of the Copa Libertadores semi-finals and the teams will likely be even more cautious than usually.
