Atletico Mineiro v Peñarol - Copa CONMEBOL Libertadores 2024
Atletico Mineiro and Caracas square off in the Copa Libertadores on Tuesday

Atletico Mineiro and Caracas draw the curtain on their Copa Libertadores group-stage campaign when they square off at Arena MRV on Tuesday. The Venezuelan side have endured a disappointing campaign and sit rooted to the bottom of Group G with just one point from their five matches.

Atletico Mineiro failed to return to winning ways as they fell to a 1-0 defeat against Sport Recife in the second leg of their Copa do Brasil third-round clash last Wednesday.

However, a 2-0 first-leg victory saw Gabriel Milito’s men win the tie 2-1 on aggregate and book their spot in the fourth round.

Atletico Mineiro now turn their attention to the Copa Libertadores, where they won each of their opening four matches before suffering a 2-0 loss against Penarol on May 14.

With 12 points from five matches, Atletico Mineiro currently sit at the top of Group G, three points above second-placed Penarol.

In stark contrast, Caracas find themselves rooted to the bottom of the group, having picked up just one point from their five matches so far.

The Venezuelan outfit’s underwhelming campaign has been due to their struggles at the defensive end of the pitch, where they have shipped a staggering 15 goals so far while scoring just three.

Caracas head into Tuesday’s clash without a win in 16 consecutive matches across all competitions, stretching back to a 1-0 victory over Rayo Zuliano on February 11.
