Emelec vs. Atlético Mineiro: an interesting Libertadores clash

A great Copa Libertadores match awaits us this Tuesday 6/28, the day on which the competitive Emelec of Ismael Rescalvo will face the increasingly powerful Atlético Mineiro of the Argentine, Antonio 'the Turk' Mohamed.

On the Ecuadorian side, they are going through somewhat turbulent institutional times, especially if we consider that the continuation of the current DT is not assured. In addition to that, it is necessary to highlight that they have not competed for more than 1 month in an official way, for which it is evident that the Brazilians will arrive with a very important advantage at this meeting.

For his part, Mineiro will put 'all meat on the grill' to get a good away result and try to secure at least a small part of the classification. Players like Hulk and Nacho Fernández are truly fearsome for their rivals.

Last 10 Emelec matches

Although the new edition of the local championship has not yet started in Ecuador (Emelec plays the first date on 7/2), we can analyze the last 10 matches they were playing, which include the domestic tournament and the highly prestigious Copa Libertadores.

In this section, we find ourselves with a highly irregular team, and it is that of those matches they were able to win 4, lose 4 and draw 2. One of the defeats was predicted by the sports forecasts since they suffered it in the Libertadores and against Palmeiras by 1-3, but the loss against Orense with a 2-0 loss was quite unexpected by the fans of Los Millonarios. After those two falls they faced the Brazilians again but this time as visitors, where they played a good game but could not prevent losing 1-0.

However, it is not all bad news for the Ecuadorians, as they also managed to score goals three times. We are talking about the 1-4 against Táchira in a key game to go to the second round of the Libertadores, they scored 4 against Mushuc Runa with an imposing Sebastián Rodríguez who scored a double. A little over a month ago, they made history by scoring no less than 7 goals against the Bolivian team Independiente. In all these matches, they scored 10 goals and scored 19, which leaves a positive balance of 9 goals in favor.

Last 10 Atletico Mineiro matches

As for the record of the last 10 games, the reality is that there is not a huge difference in terms of numbers as one might suppose. They knew how to win 5 times, tied 3 and lost the remaining 2.

One of the defeats broke the sports predictions since it occurred against Deportes Tolima by 1-2 at home thanks to a goal about the time of the soccer player Lucumí, and the other occurred in a true great match against Fluminense, which concluded with a festival of 5-3 goals in favor of Fluzão with 2 assists and 1 goal from Luiz Henrique.

In terms of victories, they scored 3 against Independiente del Valle (Hulk's double) and recently beat the always difficult Flamengo in a very solid way, 2-0 with a great performance by 'Nacho' Fernández.

They faced Palmeiras away and were able to neutralize their offense by drawing 0-0, and the same with Santos who finished 1-1. In these last 10 games, they were able to score 15 goals and concede 10, reaching a positive balance of 5 goals.

Background between both

Although they have never met face to face, the truth is that Emelec has a long tradition of confrontations against Brazilian clubs, with a total of 44 matches played with 26 losses, 9 draws and 9 wins. On the Mineiro side, they only played 6 times against Ecuadorians, with 3 wins, 2 losses and 1 draw.

This will be the first meeting between these two good teams, and sports betting shows the Brazilians as the candidates to win the series.

The magnifying glass on...

The electricians will have the presence of their star footballer, the Uruguayan midfielder Sebastián Javier Rodríguez. 'El mago', a nickname he received because of his class when dealing with the ball, is the team's top scorer in this edition of the Libertadores, reaching 5 goals in 6 games.

Creative midfielder Alexis Zapata has 3 assists in this tournament and, together with area 9, Mauro Quiroga, they form a dangerous trident that, according to Copa Libertadores predictions, could make the Brazilians very uncomfortable.

The magnifying glass on…

The Frenchman will most likely have the imposing Brazilian crack Hulk on the field, who is currently the team's top scorer with 6 goals in 11 games for the Brasileirao and 3 goals and 1 assist in 6 games for Libertadores.

Ignacio Fernández is the other star of the team, scoring 3 goals and 3 assists in the Brazilian Serie A and 2 goals in the current Copa Libertadores. Eduardo Vargas and Matías Zaracho will be important triggers from the bench.

Sports bets

On the side of the always sought after sports bets, we must mention that, as we have anticipated above, they are very much in favor of the Brazilian team and rightly so, if we consider the difference between the offensive power of both. If the Ecuadorians qualify, they will pay you almost 4, while in the case of Mineiro that same pick is quoted at approximately 1.25.

As for the game itself, Emelec's victory is at 4.8 and the Frenchman's at 1.85, a bet that is undoubtedly very attractive to try as a simple bet. If you trust Emelec, you will like the double chance 'Emelec-tie' as it is valued at 2.1.

To conclude this section, due to the difference in quality between these teams, the Copa Libertadores predictions show that it can be very remarkable 'total more than 1.5 goals' to combine with another that is to your liking.
