Club América will visit Estadio Victoria on Saturday for the Liga MX (Apertura) showdown with home team Necaxa.
Our full set of predictions, statistics and match poll for Necaxa v Club América can be seen below - as well as the best betting odds.
Necaxa will be looking for an improved result here after a 1-0 Liga MX (Apertura) defeat in their last game at the hands of FC Juárez.
In that match, Necaxa had 60% possession and 10 shots on goal with 4 on target. FC Juárez got 7 shots on goal with 5 on target. Erick Castillo (61') was the scorer for FC Juárez.
It’s been all too rare in recent games that Necaxa have shown defensive steel. In fact, Lightning Bolts have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 10 goals during that time.
Taking a look at their past results, Necaxa:
- have not lost a league tie with Club América in their previous 6 games.
- are without a win at home for the past 4 league games. Their supporters are understandably frustrated.
Club América head into the meeting following on from a 4-0 Liga MX (Apertura) win to defeat Club Tijuana in their previous match.
In that match, Club América managed 48% possession and 22 attempts on goal with 9 of them on target. For Club América, the scorers were Richard Sánchez (37'), Bruno Valdez (57') and Henry Martín (79', 84'). For their opponents, Club Tijuana got 7 attempts at goal with 2 on target.
During their six most recent matches, Miguel Herrera's Club América have found the net 10 times therefore yielding them a goals per game average of 1.67.
Their previous form shows that Club América:
- have not won against Necaxa when having played them away from home in the previous 7 league matches. They really have not been travelling well at all.
- are undefeated in their last 9 league matches away from home. Impressive, to say the least.
