For one thing, they've already beaten America de Cali and for another the two sides have contrasting fortunes of late.

A tight match

With our opening prediction touching on such differing form between the sides it might be easy to assume Atletico Mineiro will run out comfortable winners. We're not so sure. True, they have recorded big wins against Cerro Porteno and Tombense recently but there has only been three games in their last 10 that have had more than one goals breathing space in the result. Then there is the poor form of America de Cali; their last 10 though has only seen them lose by more than one goal once. Their head to head meeting on 27th April only finished 2-1 to Atletico Mineiro so it would be bold to suggest a huge margin of victory with America de Cali being the home side this time as well.

In his last three outings he's netted five goals for Atletico Mineiro. Four of them have come in the Copa Libertadores with a two of them against America De Cali. That game saw Hulk play just 45 minutes with none of his last three appearances seeing him complete the full 90. He knows how to make an impact though.

They only have a single point to their name and another loss would make even third spot look like a long shot.
