Atlético Nacional vs Libertad – Libertadores :Atlético Nacional and Libertad face off at the Atanásio Girardot Stadium
In the city of Medellin, in the 2nd leg of the 3rd round of the Copa Libertadores on February 28th.
In the 1st leg, Libertad came out on top by 1-0 at home. Now, the Colombian side has the difficult task of beating the Paraguayan team if they want to advance onto the Copa Libertadores’ group stage.
The team is coming off 2 consecutive losses and they haven’t won any of their last 5 matches.
On their last 5 matches, they have gotten 3 draws and 2 losses, drawing against Atlético Huila, Deportivo La Guaira and La Equidad during that period, besides losing to Libertad and Unión Magdalena.
On the last 10 times they’ve played as hosts, they had a record of 4 victories, 5 draws and 1 loss, scoring 8 goals and only conceding 3. One of their main stand-out players is the attacker Hernán Barcos.
Meanwhile, on the other side, we have Libertad, that even away from home comes into this match confident they will be able to hold on to the advantage they’ve obtained in the 1st leg.
However, on their last match, they have lost at home against Olimpia by 2-3.
On the last 5 matches, they have gotten 3 victories, 1 draw and 1 loss. During that period, they have beaten General Díaz, The Strongest and Atlético Nacional, besides drawing against River Plate and losing to Olimpia.
Atlético Nacional vs Libertad – Betting Tip and Prediction: :
On the last 10 times they’ve played as visitors, they had a record of 2 victories, 5 draws and 3 losses, scoring 13 goals and conceding 16. One of their main stand-out players is the attacker Oscar Cardozo.
In the 1st leg, I’ve already backed the Paraguayan team, because I don’t think that Atlético Nacional deserves this much favouritism. The current team is not at all reminiscent of that side that won the Copa Libertadores and that is visible on the difficulties the team has been having against weaker opponents.
Libertad has an experienced team, capable of exploring the Colombian desperation playing away from home and Atlético needs to revert the negative result obtained in Paraguay, which will generate some additional exposure here.
Therefore, I believe that the handicaps favouring the Paraguayan side have value here.
