River Plate and Atletico Mineiro to Draw

Since it’s so difficult to predict this match, we have decided to suggest betting on a draw. River Plate is one of the biggest clubs in South America, but they’ve been inconsistent lately in their domestic league, while Atletico Mineiro is sitting at the top of Serie A at the moment. On the other hand, River Plate has a lot of experience in Copa Libertadores and they are playing at home, so a draw sounds like a reasonable prediction.

River Plate and Atletico Mineiro to Draw at Half Time

Most matches that end in a draw are also equal at half time, so that’s our next prediction for this match. Furthermore, Atletico Mineiro draw at half time in both of their matches in the previous round, while River Plate did it once. And since these are the quarter-finals, both teams are likely to enter the game in a cautious manner, which often means a draw at half time.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

We don’t expect to see many goals in this match for many reasons, one of which is the sheer importance of the duel. In addition to this, three of the four matches played by River Plate and Atletico Mineiro in the previous round of Copa Libertadores have gone under 2.5 total goals, so we expect to see the same in this game.

River Plate vs Atletico Mineiro preview: The derby of the quarter-finals

This is one of the more interesting matchups in the Copa Libertadores quarter-finals, so let’s take a closer look at both teams ahead of their first leg.

River Plate

After finishing second in the previous edition of the Argentine football league, River Plate started the new season pretty inconsistently. In the first five rounds, the team managed to get two wins, one draw, and two losses. In addition to this, River Plate was eliminated from their domestic cup after losing to their fierce rivals Boca Juniors on penalties. On the bright side, River Plate has reached the quarter finals of Copa Libertadores after they eliminated Argentinos Juniors.

Atletico Mineiro

This is shaping up to be a very successful season for Atletico Mineiro since the team is currently at the very top of the standings in the Brazilian league after going on a still active eight-game winning streak. The team also reached the quarter-finals of Copa do Brasil and the same stage of Copa Libertadores after they eliminated Boca Juniors on penalties. All in all, Atletico Mineiro obviously has the highest goals this season and they are on course of reaching them.
