Atletico Goianiense to Win

Both teams have certain disadvantages ahead of this match – while Newell’s Old Boys are in poor form and last in their domestic league, Atletico Goianiense hasn’t even been playing competitive matches outside of Copa Sudamericana and their regional championship since the Brazilian league is due to start this weekend. Still, Atletico Go seems to be in a bit better form and they have a better chance to reach the next stage if they win, so we expect them to deliver.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

The first match between these two teams ended in a scoreless draw, so our prediction is under 2.5 total goals in this game as well. In addition to that first game in the group, there are other reasons why this is a smart bet. For example, three of the last five Atletico’s matches in all competitions have gone under 2.5 total goals and they have gone over 2.5 total goals just once in the Copa Sudamericana. Also, three of five Copa Sudamericana matches by Newell’s Old Boys have gone under 2.5 total goals as well.

Both Teams to Score – No

Since we don’t expect to see many goals here and since the first match between these teams has ended without any goals, we don’t expect to see both teams scoring here. Both teams have scored in just one of Atletico’s five Copa Sudamericana matches, while the same is true for just two of five Newell’s Old Boys games.

Newell’s Old Boys vs Atletico Goianiense preview: An important game for both sides

Both Newell’s Old Boys and Atletico Goianiense have a chance to finish at the top of their group and progress into the next stage, but they need Libertad to slip against Palestino, the worst team in the group. In any case, it’s an important match, so let’s take a look at the teams:

Newell’s Old Boys

The start of the season in Argentina has been rough for Newell’s Old Boys and the things haven’t exactly been great in the Copa Sudamericana either. In the Argentinian league, the team has struggled a lot and they are currently in last place with 11 points from 13 games. The Old Boys have only managed to win twice in their last eight games in the league, along with four draws and two losses. In the Copa Sudamericana, Newell’s will likely end their journey in group stages, although they may get to the next stage if they beat Atletico Goianiense and Palestino beats Libertad by at least two goals.

Atletico Goianiense

The Brazilian team is second in Group F of the Copa Sudamericana with 9 points, one point behind Libertad. So, they need to win and wait for Libertad to slip up in order to win the group and progress to the next phase. Meanwhile, the team has been staying in competitive form until the start of Brazilian Serie A by playing the regional Campeonato Goiano, in which they’ve been eliminated by Gremio Anapolis after penalties in the semi-finals.
