Millonarios vs Atlético-MG LIVE ONLINE | Copa Libertadores

After coming back from the return match against Universidad Católica de Ecuador and advancing to the final of the Copa Libertadores qualifiers, Millonarios faces this tough series against Atlético Mineiro in search of the group stage of the most important tournament on the American continent. That victory in the Copa Libertadores was backed up with a new victory in the BetPlay League against Deportivo Cali the previous weekend (2-0), so those led by Alberto Gamero have now accumulated four victories in six official matches so far. from 2023 (E1, P1).

The strength in defense has also been a factor to consider, since Millonarios has conceded less than 1.5 total goals in five of those six games played, and even, when they failed to do so, they ended up winning the game (2-3 vs. Deportivo Pereira ). Now they will face the eighth Brazilian team in their history: in 17 matches against teams from this country, Millonarios barely won six of them (E2, L9). In total, they have conceded 19 goals from rivals from that country and scored just 13, so history is not on their side.

Atlético Mineiro, a team that already knows what it is to win the Copa Libertadores title, is undefeated in 2023 with an impressive mark of seven wins in the ten games it has played so far (E3), in addition to scoring in all least one of those commitments. Perhaps curiously, the only time Mineiro failed to score in this aforementioned streak was in the first leg of the second qualifying phase of the Copa Libertadores against Carabobo, from Venezuela, where he did not go beyond a goalless draw.

Away from home, the ‘Galo’ has been just as forceful: three victories (E2) in this 2023 keep him undefeated, a streak that extends to eight official matches (G4, E4). This state of form is what ‘Chacho’ Coudet’s team wants to maintain when facing another Colombian team, and that is that in 21 matches against clubs from the coffee country, Mineiro has won 11 games and has only lost five (E5). He has managed to score 33 goals and eight of them were scored against Santa Fe, another team from Bogotá.

Players to watch: One of Millonarios’ reinforcements for this season is Leonardo Castro, who already has three goals with the ‘Ambassadors’ – one of his goals served for the victory a week ago against Universidad Católica (ECU). With two assists and a goal, Paulinho led Atlético Mineiro to settle the series against Carabobo.

Highlight: In their two previous visits to Bogotá, Atlético Mineiro did not lose (W1, L1) and scored a goal each time.
