Atletico Mineiro to Win

As we expected, this matchup proved to be a very close one, but the first-leg win gives Atletico a nice advantage before the rematch. Still, Atletico Mineiro is in such a great form since they’re on a nine-game winning streak in the Brazilian Serie A and we expect them to keep the run going with another win against River Plate.

Atletico Mineiro and River Plate to Draw at Half Time

While we expect Atletico Mineiro to win the game at the end, we don’t expect them to have an easy job against a great team like River Plate. With that in mind, our next prediction is for Atletico Mineiro and River Plate to draw at half time, just like they did in the first match in Buenos Aires.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

We don’t expect to see a lot of goals in this game for many reasons, including the sheer importance of the match that will decide who will get to the Copa Libertadores semi-finals. In addition to their first game ending with just one goal being scored, three of the four games played by these two teams in the previous Copa Libertadores round have also gone under 2.5 total goals.

Atletico Mineiro vs River Plate preview: Another interesting duel awaits us

After a close and exciting first leg, we expect the rematch between these two teams to be equally entertaining, so let’s check both teams in more detail right now:

Atletico Mineiro

After nine straight wins in the Brazilian league, Atletico Mineiro is sitting at the top of the standings with five points more than the next team. In addition to this, Atletico Mineiro also reached the Copa do Brasil quarter-finals and they are very close to getting into the Copa Libertadores semi-finals, so the team is currently having one heck of a season.

River Plate

After the first six rounds in the new season in the Argentine league, River Plate has three wins, one draw, and two losses. They are currently seventh in the standings, which doesn’t match their ambitions exactly. In addition to this, the loss to Atletico Mineiro in the first leg of the Copa Libertadores quarter-finals put River Plate in a dangerous and difficult position ahead of the rematch, so we have to wait and see if they can find their way out of it.
