Millonarios vs U. Magdalena Prediction & Betting tips
In his own El Campin in Bogota, Los Millonarios takes on the night of Thursday-Friday against doctoral candidate Union Magdalena from Santa Marta. The home club is the towering favorite for various reasons.
Los Millonarios from capital Bogota is one of the biggest clubs in Colombia. The club won fifteen times as national champion and is together with the arch rivals Santa Fe and Atletico Nacional as the only club continuously active at the highest level. Also this season the blue shirts have started well, so the team of trainer Jorge Luis Pinto is of course also this year again among the list of major title candidates.
Especially in his own El Campin, Los Millonarios with five official home wins in a row is very strong. That is not surprising, because many opponents have trouble in the mountain air of Bogota, which is located at more than 2600 meters above sea level. If you think of Colombia, then you probably think of beautiful white beaches and impenetrable tropical rain forests, but in the capital there is a very different climate. In addition, the team has a very nice team. The young Venezuelan goalkeeper Wuilker Farinez, according to the website Transfermarket.com with a value of three million euros, is the most valuable player on the Colombian fields. With a total value of 18.5 million euros, the capitals have the fourth most valuable selection of the country. Of course you have to take such amounts with a good grain of salt, although it does say something about the strength of a team.
PhD student Union Magdalena is back at the highest level after an absence of thirteen years. That’s nice, because the club from Santa Marta is a real football institute. Not only is El Ciclon Bananero the very first club of Caribbean Colombia, it is also the very first club of Carlos Valderrama, one of the best footballers the South American country has ever produced. It is not for nothing that there is a beautiful statue of El Pibe in front of the stadium in Santa Marta.
It will be quite a job for Union Magdalena to maintain at the highest level. With the young striker Ricardo Marquez (five goals in five games), the redblue has gold in his hands, but the rest of the team is not exactly of quality. The team will have this season mainly from her home duels, because on the Caribbean coast the mercury can obviously increase significantly. According to the aforementioned Transfermarket, Union Magdalena needs a miracle in any case, because with a total value of only 6.3 million euros, it has the least valuable selection of this Apertura.
