Delfin vs Atletico Nacional: Preview and Predictions

Delfin vs Atletico Nacional
Copa Libertadores
Date: Tuesday, 15 May 2018
Kick-Off at 23:15 UK / 00:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Jocay, Manta.

Atletico Nacional have the chance to secure the top spot in the Group 2 with a result against Ecuadorian Delfin on Tuesday evening away at Estadio Jocay. The Colombians, who won the competition two years ago, look determined to fix the poor impression from the previous term when they could not go further than the group stage in the title defense quest.

Jorge Almiron’s men got off to a flying start with three wins and a draw in four matches so far. Such record is good enough to keep them four points clear at the top of the group standings with just two games left to play.

Delfin, on the other side, grabbed their historical maiden win in the most elite football competition on the continent in early-April when they stunned Colo-Colo 0-2 on the road. Nevertheless, they failed to capitalize on such win in the reverse fixture with the Chilean outfit as the home defeat 1-2 kept them at the very foot of the Group 2 ladder.

Delfin vs Atletico Nacional: Head-to-head

This will only be the second ever head to head encounter between Delfin and Atletico Nacional.

Los Verdolagas were brutal towards the Ecuadorian outfit when they trashed them 4-0 in the second
round of the competition.

Moreno, Torres and Lenis (bagged a brace) inspired the win at Estadio Atanasio Girardot.

Delfin vs Atletico Nacional: Prediction

The quality is no doubts on Atletico Nacional’s side. Furthermore, they obviously seem to love playing Ecuadorian opposition as they defeated Estudiantes del Valle in the final to clinch the aforementioned trophy two years ago in Copa Libertadores.

Fabian Bustos’ troops have troubles keeping things tight at the back and we doubt they’ll be able to improve the poor defensive record against one of the most talented attacking lines in the competition. The value is definitely strong with Atletico Nacional not to lose at 1.53.

We’ll ally try with the BTTS option, expecting the hosts to bag at least once in front of the home fans. The odds are certainly worth trying, set at 2.00.
