Atletico Nacional vs Racing Club Predictions and Free Tips from our expert tipsters when the teams go head-to-head in the Copa Libertadores on Friday, 4 August 2023.
The first four outcomes recorded by Atletico Nacional in the group stage helped them to advance it into the knockouts. The team lost their finals two matches but three wins and one draw secured them.
Going on, they have been recording decent displays of late. They are on a three-match unbeaten streak and won the last two games in a row. The team will play host to Racing Club in the Libertadores knockout clash on Friday.
Racing Club had an impressive run in their Libertadores group stage outings. The team lost just once and advanced to the knockouts being group winners. By the looks of things, we expect an interesting match-up between these two.
This will be marked as the first head to head meetings between these two teams.
Atletico Nacional is having a decent form at home of late. They lost just once in the past 10 home outings across all competitions.
Meanwhile, Racing Club is not having a decent form of late on the road. They were winless in five of the last six road trips.
Since they have not met in the past, we expect a win for Atletico Nacional considering the recent form of both.
Four of the total six group stage fixtures played by these two teams were high-scoring affairs. But both teams have been recording low-scoring matches in their latest outings. In that case, we don’t expect this match to have goals over 2.5 ft.
Racing Club have an unimpressive offensive side on the road of late. On the other side, Atletico Nacional have a decent defensive at home, leaking just three in the past five. In that case, we expect a one-sided match on Friday.
Atletico Nacional is likely to seal a win on Friday considering all these observations. An unimpressive Racing Club will add more to the chances for Nacional here.
We therefore like to place Atletico Nacional to win bet at 2.30 odds as the main tip. For the second tip, we like to place the under 2.5 goals tip at 1.60 odds.
