Tip Reasoning

Tuesday’s Copa Libertadores second round qualification, second leg clash sees Brazilians Atletico Mineiro doing battle with Uruguayans Danubio. The hosts are expected to advance to the next qualification round with few issues..

Although Atletico Mineiro will be disappointed to have lost the lead twice in last week’s 2-2 draw in the first leg between the two, two away goals still has them in a strong position and those taking to the pitch on Tuesday will be confident of finishing the job off in front of an expectant home crowd. Galo are hopeful of putting together a deep run in the competition and making the group stage is simply the minimum expectation, so the side cannot afford to slip up here.

Considering how strong they are on home soil, the hosts don’t look like doing that and their prospects appear bright going into the game. Atletico have won their last 5 home games without even so much as conceding a goal and having also gone 12 Libertadores home games unbeaten, winning 10 times in the process, their power on home territory is more than apparent.

Meanwhile, Danubio competed well in the first leg and showed good fighting qualities to come back from behind twice, but they’ve still left themselves with an incredibly difficult task. The Uruguayans were expected to lose this tie comfortably and whilst that still may be come the end aggregate score, up until now they’ve given Atletico a run for their money.

Nonetheless, needing to score at least once to have any hope of going through, Danubio’s weak away record does little to inspire confidence. They’ve failed to score a single goal over their last 5 away games and having also lost 8 of their last 11 Libertadores away games, an upset really doesn’t appear to be on the cards.

Ultimately, this is a game we are expecting Atletico to win relatively comfortably and their extra quality should show with the backing of the home crowd. The hosts are very strong on home territory and the visitors just don’t look like having the quality needed to stand up to the challenge.

All things considered, it’s backing a home win to nil that’s captured our attention as far as the betting goes and said market is exactly where our money is going. Atletico haven’t conceded in 5 games at home, Danubio haven’t scored in 5 games away and we think the hosts will run out 2-0 winners as a result.
