Las Águilas have kept it tight, resulting in the total number of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper during their last six outings standing at 3. That sort of trend isn’t assured to be carried forward into this match, though.

Team News: Club América
Club América boss Santiago Solari will be thankful to have no fitness concerns whatsoever before this game thanks to a fully healthy squad available for selection.
Team News: Pachuca
Pachuca manager Paulo Pezzolano has not got a full squad to pick from. Romario Ibarra (Collarbone fracture) and Víctor Guzmán (Knee Injury) are those who can’t be considered.
Our thinking is that Pachuca will need to apply a lot of pressure to put one past this Club América outfit who we think might well get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
We’ve gone for a very even contest with a 1-0 advantage for Club América at the conclusion of the game.
Should be an interesting one.
