We usually get pleasant shocks from the Copa Libertadores, but on Wednesday in Caracas, it seems doubtful that we will. Carabobo has recently put on strong performances in its home league, but it hasn't been able to reciprocate those efforts in international events.Stats and team to team analysis suggests that it won't be able to do so again this time. Hence, Atletico MG will have the odds in its favor for winning. Moreover, Mineiro will walk in confident for scoring at least 2 goals. I am predicting both teams to score and the final scoreline to be 1-2.
