Atletico Nacional vs Argentinos Juniors
Copa Libertadores
Date: Friday, 7 May 2021
Kick-off at 00:00 UK/ 01:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Hernán Ramírez Villegas.

Atletico Nacional are simply on an amazing spell at the moment, and especially so at this venue. They are gunning for the top-most spot, and against the inconsistent Argentinos Juniors, they surely do have the upper hand.

Atletico are currently placed second in the table, and need to make up a deficit of two points to get to the first position. And coincidentally, their opponents for the day – Argentinos are placed at the top.

As such, a win this Friday will help Nacional to be on pole position to end up group champions.

Meanwhile, Juniors are finding it hard to string together a considerable number of wins. They have made it a habit of dropping points in almost every other fixture, and particularly on the road, the team has been performing below par.

Likely, expect an Atletico Nacional victory this weekend.
