Atletico Mineiro to Win with Handicap (-1)

Even though Emelec managed to avoid defeat in the first leg against the reigning Brazilian champions and Copa Libertadores semi-finalists, we don’t see how they can avoid elimination after the second leg in Brazil.

In fact, we agree with the bookies and their assessment that Atletico Mineiro is the absolute favourite in this game, especially after their string of good results lately. So, we can see the home team winning this game by two or more goals.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

The first leg between Atletico Mineiro and Emelec ended with two goals being scored, but we expect more goals to be scored in the second leg, which Atletico will host.

After all, Atletico Mineiro averaged 2.57 goals per game in the competition so far, while Emelec averaged 3.29 goals per game in Copa Libertadores this season.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

We’ve seen both teams score in the first leg between Atletico Mineiro and Emelec, so we expect to see the same in their rematch as well, especially since we expect the home team to be very offensive in this match.

In addition to this, both teams scored in a whopping 86% of matches played by Atletico Mineiro in the competition this season, while the same is true for 71% of all Emelec games in Copa Libertadores so far.

Atletico Mineiro vs Emelec preview: Can the guests cause a huge upset?

Atletico Mineiro

The current champions of Brazil got to the semi-finals of Copa Libertadores last season and they are one of the main favourites to win this competition now. However, Atletico Mineiro wasn’t that convincing in group stages since they only finished first thanks to a better goal difference than the next team, Deportes Tolima. They also enter the second leg against Emelec tied with them, which is also surprising.

Emelec

The first half of Ecuadorian league wasn’t that great for Emelec since they only managed to get the sixth place in the standings. And while the team had a break before playing in the first leg against Atletico Mineiro, they did well in that match and managed to stay undefeated, which gives them hope that they can reach the quarter-finals of Copa Libertadores.
