River Plate cannot win over three matches, but whether Atletico Mineiro will become another obstacle for the “millionaires” on August 12 – the answer is in the forecast. Who will win?
River Plate found themselves in a tough group with Fluminense and two Colombian clubs, Junior and Santa Fe. Despite the fact that the team of Marcelo Gallardo was considered the clear favorite of the quartet, they managed to finish only on the second line with a modest margin of two points from Junior.
In the 1/8 finals, the “millionaires” met with “Argentinos Juniors” and at the “Monumental” they scored a 1: 1 draw with an opponent. However, in the return leg, River Plate won a 2-0 win and moved on. In the Argentinean championship, the “millionaires” lost 1: 2 to “Godoy Cruz” in the last round, but in this meeting only Franco Armani, Milton Casco and Julian Alvarez appeared on the field – Gallardo intends to throw all his forces into the Copa Libertadores.
Atletico Mineiro is having a great season – in the Copa Libertadores, Cook ‘s team has not lost a single match in the group, winning it with 16 points out of 18 possible. However, in the 1/8 finals, the story in this tournament for the “cockerels” could have ended – after two zero draws with Boca Juniors, it came to a penalty shootout. However, the Argentines that evening beat disgustingly – only one accurate blow out of four.
In Brazilian Serie A, Atletico Mineiro is also great – after 15 rounds, the team leads the table, two points ahead of the second Palmeiras. The 2: 1 victory over Juventude in the last round was the eighth in a row for the cockerels in the championship. Today they will be able to play and strengthen the team Guilherme Arana , who returned with a gold medal from the Tokyo Olympics, and Eduardo Vargas, who missed the return match with Boca due to disqualification.
River Plate has been preparing for this meeting for more than two weeks, sacrificing championship matches. At home, the “millionaires” will obviously only play to win and there are definitely chances for success – Atletico Mineiro has recently visited Buenos Aires and barely got away from the weakened Boca Juniors. Away, the “cockerels” are vulnerable and the “River Plate” will certainly take advantage of this.
We believe that guests have no chance. Forecast – the victory of “River Plate” . In 1xbet download, such an outcome is offered with odds of 1.98
River Plate does not rush headlong into the attack in the Copa Libertadores – the “millionaires” even play cautiously at home, paying attention to defense. Atletico Mineiro will also not dare to play open football at a party, and in general, in the playoffs, the “cockerels” have problems in attack, having not yet scored a single goal from the field, so this meeting is hardly worth the scoring extravaganza count.
Our second bet will be under 2.5 goals total . This bet can be placed for 1.64
