Atletico Tucuman looking to mount a comeback

A trip to the gruelling altitude of La Paz to face The Strongest was always going to be a tough one for Argentines Atletico Tucuman and so it proved, as they fell to a 2-0 defeat in last week’s first leg. Nonetheless, the side were fully expecting to lose said game but will be confident of coming back in front of their passionate home support.

Indeed, El Decano are typically very strong on home territory and now back at a regular altitude, they’ll be hoping to make their superior quality compared to The Strongest count. Atletico have won 3 of their last 4 Libertadores home games and have also scored twice in 4 of their last 5 matches as hosts, so confidence certainly won’t be in short supply this Wednesday and there’s a real feeling that the tie isn’t over.

The Strongest hoping to hang on

Meanwhile, The Strongest arrive happy to be in the lead but also wishing it was a more substantial one. A 2-0 lead would normally be a strong one in continental competition but the Bolivians are a weak force when their altitude advantage is taken away and that is a big concern heading into this trip to Argentina.

Indeed, the visitors have lost their last 5 Libertadores away games whilst conceding a huge average of 2.8 goals a game and the fact they’ve only scored once over said fixtures tells you everything you need to know as regards their strength on the road. Having also let in an average of 2.2 goals a game over their last 5 away games, confidence is in short supply in visiting ranks coming into this match.

Atletico have to be fancied

Ultimately, this is a match Atletico will be going all out to win from the first minute and we fully expect them to put The Strongest under constant pressure. The visitors will merely be looking to hang on but 90 minutes in a rocking Estadio Monumental José Fierro is a tough ask for any team, never mind one as weak as the Bolivians are on their travels in the competition.

All things considered, backing Atletico Tucuman on the -1 handicap looks to provide excellent value as far as the betting is concerned and is something we’re more than happy to do. We can’t see the Argentines having any issues in winning the match on the night and feel they’ll be able to come back and force penalties via a 2-0 margin of victory.
