Olimpia and Atletico Nacional to Draw
This is perhaps the most interesting duel in this round of Copa Libertadores qualifiers since both teams have the quality for group stages and experience in continental competitions.
So, we expect a closer and hard-fought game, which we can see ending in a draw. While Olimpia won both legs against Cesar Vallejo in the last round, they drew in two of the first three games in the Paraguayan league. Meanwhile, Atletico Nacional is currently second in Colombian Apertura after eight rounds, so a draw sounds like a reasonable outcome in this game.
Olimpia and Atletico Nacional to Draw at Half Time
Since we expect this match to end in a draw, we also expect the two teams to draw at half time because that is often the case at half times of matches ending without a winner.
That being said, Olimpia and Atletico Nacional didn’t meet at all recently, so we don’t have any h2h data to back up our prediction, so we have to rely on our gut feeling mostly.
Under 2.5 Total Goals
As we said, we expect a close and hard fought game between Olimpia and Atletico Nacional, so we can see this match ending with fewer than three goals being scored.
After all, Atletico Nacional averaged 1.75 goals per game so far in their domestic league. And while Olimpia averaged 4.00 goals per game in the first three rounds in Paraguayan league, both of their games against Cesar Vallejo in the previous round of Copa Libertadores qualifiers have gone under 2.5 total goals.
