Expert Betting Tips
There is little doubt that Atletico Mineiro will win at home. Lately, the Galo has been playing well at home, beating Fortaleza (3:2) and, before that, beating Flamengo with scores of 2:0 and 2:1. Emelec also understands that it will be difficult for the Ecuadorians not to concede against Galo, in which case the visitors will have to score. We expect a reasonably productive game with goals for both sides and a final win for the home side.
