Atletico Mineiro looks to extend its home unbeaten streak in the Copa Libertadores with a victory Wednesday at 8pm EST over Colombian side Sante Fe.
The winners of matchday one face each other tonight in Belo Horizonte as Ronaldinho and Atletico Mineiro take on Sante Fe at the Estadio Independencia.
The hosts are listed as 1.53 favourites over at William Hill to win outright on Wednesday, while the double result takes that up past evens to 2.20.
They are unbeaten in their last four games in all competitions, including a 1-0 away win at Zamora in Venezuela two weeks ago. Although they finished eighth in the Brazilian top flight last season, they were one of the most dominant teams at home; going 13-1-5 (W-L-T) while conceding less than a goal per.
A draw result is being offered at 3.60, while the away victory is at a heavier 6.00. Sante Fe is coming of a 1-0 home loss in the Colombian league to Millonarios, which is the only loss it's had in its past seven games in all competitions. Los Cardenales defeated Nacional Asuncion at home by a 3-1 score in their opening match, and they currently sit in first in the Colombian league with a 5-1-1 mark.
In the correct goal scorer markets, Brazilian international Jo struck last time out in this competition for Atletico and is listed at 2.20 to do the same on Wednesday.
If you're looking for an over/under pick it is difficult to tell where this will go, but I feel the under will crack and that can be taken at 1.73. Sante Fe has conceded a paltry three goals from its seven league matches and the last two times these clubs met each other, this result hit.
