The ‘Sabalero’ will be arriving as they have the advantage of winning the first leg in Santa Fe by 2-1. Atlético Miniero will also try to stress the fact that they want to reach the finals anyhow. They also want to get glorified in a milestone that will be unprecedented in its international history of games. The Sabalero will be playing against Ecuador’s Independiente Del Valle for advancing into the final round of the competition. The Ecuadorian team had beaten Corinthians in the semi-final round in Brazil.

Columbus is on the opposite side and they will be arriving at the match with confidence to make history at Mineiro. Before, just two of the teams from Argentina, Libertadores and Boca Juniors, have won matches playing against Atlético Mineiro. The team will be led by Andres Rojas and he will be assisted by Dionisio Ruiz and Alexander Guzmán, his countrymen. Colon has lost their Colombian player, Guillermo Celis after getting injured against crucial rupture of his ligament. He will be leaving with the team who played against the Brazilian team in Sante Fe.
