Football predictions – Atletico Nacional vs Clube Atletico Mineiro – Club Friendlies

Clube Atletico Mineiro have taken just one point from their last three Club Friendlies. matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Clube Atletico Mineiro are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions Atletico Nacional should prove no easy feat either – Clube Atletico Mineiro haven’t won against any Club Friendlies. leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

Atletico Nacional have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Atletico Nacional dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the Club Friendlies.’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

Atletico Nacional are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about Atletico Nacional and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in Atletico Nacional’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, Clube Atletico Mineiro are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Clube Atletico Mineiro took a point away from Atletico Nacional (1-1 draw).

Notably, Atletico Nacional’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Atletico Nacional have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four Club Friendlies. away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Clube Atletico Mineiro, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to Clube Atletico Mineiro getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though Clube Atletico Mineiro are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), Atletico Nacional hold the best away record in the Club Friendlies. (W8 D2 L1). Clube Atletico Mineiro’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with Atletico Nacional’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the Atletico Nacionalns could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 Atletico Nacional win at 15/2 with bet365.
