Atletico Nacional vs Argentinos Juniors: Storylines
This game comes in bad timing for Atletico Nacional. Not only Colombia is living conflictive days with protests amid social and political tension, but the Medellín side has also been knocked out of the local tournament playoffs by La Equidad after drawing 2-2 at home (2-3 on aggregate).
Guimaraes' team finds itself in a better position in the international competition, though. Last week, they've tied 4-4 with Nacional in an eventful game. However, Argentinos Juniors arrive to this round in a much better way.
The squad coached by Gabriel Milito struggled in the Argentine Copa de la Liga, but somehow it began the Copa Libertadores perfectly. El Bicho beat 2-0 Universidad Catolica on the road in Matchday 2 and made it two wins from two so far. Will the one-time Libertadores champions keep with their great run?
