Nacional VS Emelec

Preview

Analysis of Atlético Nacional

Nacional de Medellín have already won this competition in 1989 and are usually very competitive.
 
in the first stage they have lead group 7, with Estudiantes, Libertad and Barcelona de Guayaquil. Moreover, they have presented offensive power and have always privileged offence over defence in their matches. Therefore they struggled against Emelec in the first leg, since in this away match they have not been able to present defensive quality and have suffered two goals and conceded many goal opportunities.
 
now they need to use their best weapon, offence, to score the goals they need to qualify, which probably will not be too hard. However they must also improve their defence, since in the first leg match they have been constantly threatened by Emelec.

Confirmed Lineup: C. Vargas, F. Nájera, E. Calle, A. Henríquez, O. Murillo, F. Díaz, H. Otálvaro, J. Valencia, L. Ruiz, O. Berrío, J. Copete.
Coach: R. Rueda.

Analysis of Emelec

Emelec ended group stage in second place, only three points behind leaders Internacional. The team has got strong and fast players, who have done well in the first leg of the first knockout round.
 
With the 2 goal advantage from the first match, we expect Emelec to present a defensive strategy once again, but also believe they will try to take advantage of any counterattack opportunities, since they are aware that by scoring a goal they will force Nacional to score 4 goals to qualify.
 
This could be an interesting match for a team that likes to play fast and has scored goals in two of the last 3 away games, including 2 goals in the 3-2 loss against Internacional. Therefore we don’t expect Emelec to dedicate entirely on defence, since they are likely to try to score a goal which will almost certainly guarantee qualification.

Confirmed Lineup: E. Dreer, J. Guagua, J. Narváez, G. Achilier, O. Bagüí, F. Gaibor, O. Lastra, P. Quiñónez, E. Herrera, M. Bolaños, Á. Mena.
Coach: O. De Felippe.

Betting suggestion:

Both teams have got tremendous offensive quality. Moreover, the home team needs to score early to have a shot at qualifying, but Emelec is aware that by scoring a goal they will almost certainly guarantee qualification, Since Nacional would have to score 4. Therefore, we expect many goal opportunities for both teams.
