Atlético Nacional form and stats

The story so far in the Liga BetPlay for Atlético Nacional, who have the most scored goals (29) in Liga BetPlay, at their home stadium (Estadio Atanasio Girardot) is 2 wins, 3 draws and 2 defeats.

A good away victory last time out for Atlético Nacional, who won 3-2 against Rionegro Aguilas (placed 14th). In the match before that, Atlético Nacional hosted Junior and drew the game 2-2.

The hosts are modest favourites in this match, with the bookmakers estimating the chance of a home win at about 50% +- five percent. It's interesting to look at how Atlético have performed under similar circumstances, so here are some numbers: When modest favourites like this (we found six games) they have won one time, drawn two and lost three.

The Atlético fans have had their share of opportunities to cheer home goals this season, having seen 12 goals in 7 league matches. With more than 1,5 conceded goals on average, the Atlético defense is not exactly impregnable. 11 goals conceded from 7 games. You can find more goal stats on the Statistics tab above.

América de Cali form and stats

América de Cali have only collected 4 points from their away games in the Liga BetPlay, after 0-4-3 (7 played). América has drawn their two previous away games.

It's another away game for the visitors, as they travelled to Junior (placed 8th) in their previous outing. The Liga BetPlay match ended in a draw 1-1. Prior to that match, a home win 3-0 against Patriotas Boyaca.

América are the outsiders in this one, but not by much. Their performance in similar games (being the away team and moderate outsiders) is five wins, two draws and seven defeats. From a total of 14 matches.

There might be some complaints about the fixture list from the América manager A. Borges Guimarães as the team has another away game coming up in only four days, this time against Gremio.

The attacking power of América when travelling is not overwhelming with 6 goals scored from 7 league matches away. As opposed to that, América de Cali have seen the ball go into their own net 10 times on the road.

Head 2 Head

Head-2-head stats last ten meetings: seven - one - two (Atlético wins - draws - América de Cali wins). As for goals, three matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), seven had two or less.
