Event: International Club Friendly (Florida Cup)
Start time: 01:00
Game: Bayer Leverkusen v Atletico Mineiro
Pick: Over 3,25 goals @2,10 or more!
Bookies Offer: Pinnacle @2,14!
Only one pick worth taking, we will count on quality difference here: Bayer Leverskusen are in the middle of the season, a short New Years break, while all the important players of Atletico Mineiro are still on holidays. That means, Mineirao came to Florida with their youth team.
On the other side, for Leverkusen this is an important competition, they continue with the season in two weeks and so, they brought their best team to USA. Also, they will give more importance to result, the season so far was not so succesfull, so they need to pump confidence. Even injured players like Volland and Bender train and will be prepared for football soon.
My first thought, before I checked the teams was, there must be value on Brasilians, but now with the team they sent to USA, there is no value surely. It is very tough to judge the quality of these players and although I don`t rate Bayer Leverkusen highly, they should have too much for Atletico.
But there is another good bet: on goals. Germans for sure will go for a win and will try to enjoy themselves, scoring as many as possible. But also I count on Brasilian talent, for sure they are able to penetrate this defence and that can only result in an over.
At the end of the day, both to score, Leverkusen to win, my call is 3-2!
