Top 2021 Copa Libertadores predictions 

Gonzalez is taking the under 2.5 goals in the Boca Juniors vs. Atletico Mineiro matchup. He’s confident conservative offensive play will be featured in Tuesday’s round of 16 clash. Further hampering the scoring efforts for Boca Juniors will be the absence of midfielder Edwin Cardona, who just finished playing with the Columbian national team in the Copa America tournament. Picking up the offensive slack will be forward Sebastian Villa, who has three goals in five appearances for Boca Juniors. Midfielder Agustin Almendra has a goal and an assist in five matches as well.

Atletico Mineiro has not been in action since May 25 and will look to avoid any rust. In Group H, Atletico Mineiro dominated, going 5-0-1 by outscoring its opponents 15-3. Givanildo Vieira de Sousa, known as Hulk, has been the heart of the offense, scoring six goals and adding one assist in six matches played in the tournament. Another key component has been forward Jefferson Savarino, who has two goals and three assists in five appearances.

“With this being the first leg of the round of 16 and both teams looking to give themself life ahead of the second leg, I expect a low scoring match and for the under to hit,” Gonzalez told SportsLine.

Gonzalez also has two other best bets, including one with a plus-money payout. He’s only sharing his 2021 Copa Libertadores picks at SportsLine.
