Atletico Mineiro to Win

While Emelec certainly has the quality to put up a fight against Atletico, at least on their home court, we still see the guests winning the game and taking the lead ahead of the second leg.

After all, Atletico Mineiro is the better team on paper and, more importantly at this stage, they are in full competitive form. Meanwhile, Emelec played their last official game nearly a month ago and we see that as a huge advantage for Atletico in this game.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

These two teams haven’t met in recent years, so we don’t have any h2h data for their upcoming duel. Despite this, we expect to see at least three goals in this game.

After all, both teams have been pretty efficient in terms of goals in the group stages since both Emelec and Atletico Mineiro averaged 3.50 goals per game in the six games they played in their respective groups.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

As we mentioned before, we don’t have any head-to-head date for this duel from recent years, but we expect to see goals and we expect both teams to score.

The reason lies in the fact that both teams scored in 67% of matches played by both teams in Copa Libertadores group stages, so we can see that being the case in this game too.

Emelec vs Atletico Mineiro preview: Can the home team upset the favourites?

Emelec

The first part of Ecuadorian league didn’t end that well for Emelec since they were only in the sixth place in the standings. However, that was a month ago, so their form is not really relevant for their upcoming duel with Atletico Mineiro in the Top 16 phase in Copa Libertadores – but the fact that they didn’t play competitive football in the last month certainly is and we will see how they manage to overcome this issue.

Atletico Mineiro

The reigning champions of Brazil reached the semi-finals in Copa Libertadores last season, so they are certainly one of the favourites to win the competition now. The team wasn’t as convincing in group stages as many expected since they only got the first place thanks to a better goal difference than Deportes Tolima.
