One of the most fascinating ties of the quarter finals is Club Atletico Mineiro against Tijuana , Xolos were only formed in 2007 but have already earned their place amongst the best in Mexico. Atletico are one of the best sides in Brazil at the moment and are the tournament favourites.

Atletico Mineiro have experienced great success in the local state Minas Gerais championship (winning 42 titles) but have only managed the 1 win in Brazil Serie A. Mineiro have not had the best of years until recently. Finishing 2nd in 1999 was their only decent finish until last year. In 2012 with a fine squad assembled they challenged for the title for most of the long season. Fluminense prevailed in the end but Mineiro more than matched them. Mineiro in this seasons Minas Gerais state championsip have had a good warm up. In a weak regional section were only eternal rivals Cruzeiro challenges them they finished at champions again with an overall record of 12 wins, 0 draws and 3 defeats. Including in this run was a sequence of 8 consecutive home wins. In Copa Libertadores this season Atletico Mineiro without a doubt have been the most impressive side so far. With 7 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat they have breezed through the tournament scoring 22 and conceding 11. They have a very dangerous squad with Ronaldinho turning back the clock and totally dominating games. Accompanied by tournament top scorer Jo and assisted by crack striker Diego Tardelli and backed up with the exciting midfielder Bernard. Atletico have a clean bill of health and a superb squad of players to choose from.

Club Tijuana are a very young club in Mexico but have all the right infrastructure to go far. They have a single league Mexico Apertura victory from 2012 to their name. Tijuana have not had a good Clausera, indeed they finished 10th of 18 teams with 6 wins, 3 draws and 8 defeats. Struggling away from home for the majority of the closing season.Tijuana have been a revelation in this year’s Copa Libertadores however. With a record of 5 wins, 3 draws and 1 defeat, they remain undefeated at home so far despite facing up to the likes of Corinthians, Palmeiras and Millionares. Key men of Xolos are attacking midfielder Fernando Arce, winger Fidel Martinez and defensive mainstay Javier Gandolfini. Missing this game with a suspension is Pablo Aguilar.


A huge game for both sides and another game that I feel could be a cracking tie. I cannot look past Atletico Mineiro though. The home leg looked to have clinched the tie as yet again Xolos started soldidly and indeed raced into a 2-0 lead. Mineiro showed their class though and Diego Tardelli was the difference with a goal and an assist. I cannot see the Mexicans getting anything in Brazil and with a carnival atmosphere planned in Minas Gerais with thousands of Scream mask delivered it could be a horror show for Tijuana. I see an easy home win here and take Atletico Mineiro -1 goal at 1.73 with bet365 . The price on the home side is shortening, take the bet as soon as you can to get the top price.
