Max Points for Club America?
Fernando Ortiz’s Club America are riding high in Liga MX right now, 19 points in their opening 10 matches. If results continue to go their way, they might move to the summit.
Gabriel Caballero’s Mazatlan have had a tough campaign, just two wins in their 10 fixtures.
Can Lowly Mazatlan Cause a Stunner?
Mazatlan, founded two years ago, have had a predictably tough season. The club from Sinaloa mustered just two wins from their opening 10 matches, drawing five while losing three. (12 goals and conceded 13).
So, after beginning the season with back-to-back losses (Puebla and Tigres), the Mazatlan fans might have been feared worse outcomes. They’ve suffered just one reverse since.
The home team head into this one unbeaten in four, victories over Guadalajara and Leon, then draws against Queretaro and Juarez. This will no doubt be a stern test for Mazatlan at the Estadio de Mazatlan. As underdogs, the Gunners are priced at +350.
Club America Too Strong?
Club America are the record winners of the top division in Mexico, winning an unrivaled 13 titles. However, last season, they finished fourth in the standings, then beaten in the semifinals.
Club America have made a steady start in 2022-23. Fernando Ortiz’ troops are in third place, behind Monterrey and Toluca, 19 points from 10 matches. The Blue-Creams have a half-dozen victories, three defeats and a draw.
After a shaky start to the new campaign which saw them lose three of their opening five (jfour points from a possible 15 total), Club America are in red-hot form right now. The Eagles make the trip to the Estadio de Mazatlan, having won five Liga MX games in a row.
