Atletico Nacional to Win
While Cortulua is back to Primera A after a few seasons in lower rank, Atletico Nacional is the reigning champion of Torneo Apertura. So, it’s clear why the guests are such favourites.
With that in mind, our prediction is for Atletico Nacional to win the game and start off their campaign of defending the title with three points. After all, Atletico Nacional did win two of the last three h2h duels against Cortulua.
Under 2.5 Total Goals
Four of the last five h2h duels between Cortulua and Atletico Nacional have gone under 2.5 total goals, so we expect the same outcome in their upcoming game as well.
Furthermore, Atletico Nacional averaged 2.25 goals per game in Clausura last season, while Cortulua averaged just 2.30 goals per game in the Primera B last season.
Both Teams to Score – No
Both teams scored in just one of the previous five head-to-head meetings between Cortulua and Atletico Nacional, so we won’t be surprised if that happens again on Saturday.
Of course, we would expect Atletico Nacional to keep the clean sheet in this game, so you can also try betting on that market if you want a bit better odds, or even try Atletico Nacional to win to nil.
