Palmeiras vs. Atlético Mineiro: for a place in the semifinals

The Copa Libertadores de América enters its last chapters and the definitions of the quarterfinals are red hot between some leading teams and others that seek to give a soccer blow. Indeed, one of the most anticipated confrontations will be that between Palmeiras and Atlético Mineiro, who will face each other again next Wednesday.

On the one hand, Verdao continues to be one of the top favorites in sports predictions and wants to repeat the two-time championship. To do this, they must become strong as a local, taking into account that they rescued a favorable 2-2 away result.

For its part, Atlético Mineiro wants to give one of the soccer blows of the Copa Libertadores and leave the champion of the contest on the road. In short, it will be ninety minutes of high-flying football where anything can happen.

Last Palmeiras matches

The draw in extremis tasted like victory for Verdao who with a minute to go were left empty-handed on their visit to Mineiro. However, the saving appearance of Danilo in the last play of the game allowed Palmeiras to salvage a valuable draw and position themselves better for the rematch at home.

It is clear that Abel Ferreira was not entirely satisfied with Palmeiras' performance during the ninety minutes. It is that his team suffered in defense and was not effective enough in attack. For this reason, Verdao will have to give a plus next Wednesday to advance to the semifinals as sports forecasts anticipate.

After being champion in the last edition, Palmeiras won again in Group A with absolute calm and with a perfect score after 6 wins in the same number of games played. Beyond the 18 points, Verdao scored 25 goals and only conceded 3 goals, being one of the best in the group stage.

Verdao thrashed Deportivo Táchira 4-0, thrashed Independiente Petrolero de Bolivia 8-1, beat Emelec 3-1 as a visitor, the Bolivian team 5-0, Emelec 1-0 and Táchira 4-1 in the last day. Already in the round of 16, Ferreira's team had no problems beating Cerro Porteño 3-0 away and 5-0 in Brazil.

It is worth noting that Palmeiras also remains the leader and favorite in the Brasileirao after accumulating 42 points in 20 games played with 12 wins, six draws and two losses. In addition, Verdao converted 33 goals and received 14 points.

Last Atletico Mineiro matches

Antonio Mohammed's departure surprised locals and strangers. It is that the Galo had been champion of the Brasileirao under the management of the Argentine coach, but the leaders were not satisfied with some management and with the football style of the team, so they decided to resort to an old acquaintance of the house.

Indeed, the arrival of Cuca became a mood boost for Atlético Mineiro who wants to give one of the greatest blows of sports betting in the Copa Libertadores, eliminating in the quarterfinals neither more nor less than the current champion.

In the group phase, Atlético Mineiro had to suffer more than necessary to prevail in Group D, which it shared with Deportes Tolima, Independiente del Valle and América Mineiro. Although it was a complex pairing, better performance was expected from the Galo who qualified as group leader by goal difference after obtaining 11 points just like Tolima.

Atlético Mineiro debuted with a resounding 2-0 away win against Tolima, and then drew 1-1 against América MG and Independiente del Valle, defeated América MG 2-1 away, beat Independiente del Valle 3-1 and lost 2 -1 against Tolima, on the last day.

On the other hand, in the Brasileirao the present of the Galo leaves much to be desired. He is in seventh place in the standings, ten points behind the leader of Palmeiras and outside the qualifying zone for the Copa Libertadores.

Background between both

Palmeiras and Atlético Mineiro met three times in the Copa Libertadores with three draws. That is to say, neither team could win in cup crosses, so next Wednesday's clash can break the hegemony of draws between the two.

One thing to keep in mind when it comes to sports betting is that the last match between the two at the Allianz Parque Stadium was a goalless draw during the semifinals of the 2021 Edition of the Copa Libertadores.

Rony and Rafael Navarro are Verdao's top scorers in the Copa Libertadores with seven goals each. Also, Raphael Veiga accumulates six goals, while Scarpa and Cerqueira have three goals each and can surprise at any time.

The magnifying glass on…

Sports bets

The main bookmakers agree on Verdao's favoritism for next Wednesday's clash. Indeed, the victory of Palmeiras offers 1.85, placing the tie at 3.30 and the victory away from Mineiro at 4.20.

If both teams convert, the amount to be received will be 2.05, while the correct score of 1-0 in favor of Palmeiras is the favorite result with a price of 6.00. In addition, an interesting combination is that of Palmeiras 1-0 at halftime and the final result whose quota amounts to 11.00.

Finally, Hulk's goal at any time offers an odd of 7.00, while Rafael Navarro's goal at any time has an odd of 2.87.
