Libertad vs Atletico MG: Preview & Prediction
Paraguayan Libertad must chase victory against offensive Atletico MG with routine Robinho and Fred in front. Atletico MG comes with tired legs, which can slow down the offensive actions, but both teams have shown defensive weaknesses.
It speaks for the game:
Libertad has just one point after 2 matches and has to go after victory at home in Asuncion.
Libertad leads the Paraguayan league and 8 of their 12 league matches end with over 2.5 scores.
In the first Libertadores match, Libertad got 3-3 against Sport Boys and then lost 1-2 home to Argentine Godoy Cruz.
Atletico MG is an offensive crew with Robinho and Fred as the absolute stars of the Belo Horizonte club.
In the recent Libertadores match, Atletico MG was behind 1-2 for Sport Boys, but four full-time finishers of Fred secured a 5-2 win.
Atletico MG lacks keeper Victor and midfielder Erazo.
Keep an eye on:
It is the 5th match in April for Atletico MG, and there may be some fatigue brazilians who start Estádio Nicolás Leoz.
Atletico MG comes from a disappointing 1-1 in the semifinal of the state championships against URT.
Libertad also does not come with great self-confidence after two 1-2 defeats.
It may be thought that Atletico MG will be happy to pick up a single point and therefore choose a more retracted position.
Libertad has a profile-poor squad and is struggling to break through the Brazilian defense.
