Atletico Mineiro vs Godoy Cruz – Serie A
Wednesday 17th May 01:00, Estádio Raimundo Sampaio
Match Preview and Betting Tips
Group 6’s top two sides go head to head in this Copa Libertadores tie, and there is a place in the knock-out stages for the potential winner.
Argentina’s Godoy Cruz top the group with 11 points from their five games, with Atletico Mineiro just behind them on 10. The other two teams in the group, need to win both of their last two games to stand any chance of making into the qualification places.
Mineiro head into the game as the form favourites after they remained unbeaten in their last six in all competitions, picking up four wins and two draws. Godoy are unbeaten in their last five, but have only managed two wins from their last six, with three games ending in a draw.
Veteran striker and former Brazil international Fred top scores for Atletico Mineiro in the Copa Libertadores with 5 goals to his name thus far, and you wouldn’t bet against the target man getting on the scoreboard once again tomorrow.
I’m putting my money on a home win and under 2.5 goals being scored, with that man Fred to net the first goal of the game.

Atletico Mineiro vs Godoy Cruz Stats
These two sides met for the very first time back in March, and on that day the honours were even as the sides played out a 1-1 draw.
The Argentine hosts went 1-0 up in just the 2nd minute when Correa a Giménez pass, but the game appeared to slow down after an initial frantic start.
Fred Levelled from the penalty spot after just 7 minutes of the second half, and the visitors went from strength to strength from then on and could have won the game late on after the hosts were reduced to 10-men following a straight red card for Paraguay’s Ortiz.
The game ended 1-1 but I expect Mineiro to have taken a lot of confidence from that game, and they should now go one better tomorrow night.
