Atlas, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 0-1 Liga MX (Clausura) triumph vs Pachuca.
In that game, Atlas had 36% possession and 17 shots at goal with 6 on target. The scorer for Atlas was Ignacio Malcorra (31'). On the other side, Pachuca had 8 shots on goal with 2 of them on target.
Fewer than three goals per game were seen in 6 of the past 6 fixtures where Atlas have taken part. Breaking down the goal split from that period, their opponents scored an aggregate of 6 while Los Zorros managed a tally of 2.
Their past results show that Atlas:
- haven't beaten Club América in their previous 2 matches in the league.
- are without a win at home for the past 7 league matches. That's never good.
Club América head into the match after a 2-1 Liga MX (Clausura) win versus Querétaro FC in their previous outing.

Team News: Atlas
Julio Furch (Ankle Surgery) and Edgar Zaldívar (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will be missing for Atlas manager Diego Cocca.
Team News: Club América
Thanks to a completely injury-free squad ready to go, Club América manager Santiago Solari does not have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this game.
Atlas might well have a job on their hands to score against this Club América side who we think will likely manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
We therefore see a good tussle with a 0-1 winning margin for Club América at the end of the 90 minutes.
