Atlas vs Queretaro FC
Mexico Liga MX Apertura
Date: Saturday 21st July 2018
Kick off at 03:00 UK/ 04:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Jalisco (Guadalajara).

The Mexican league kicks off at the weekend and in this fixture Atlas will take on Queretaro FC.

The teams clashed near the end of the last campaign only in April where Atlas who were again at home won the match 1-0 but it was a very narrow win and that result really could have gone either way.

Being this is the first game Atlas will want to get off to a positive start and will most probably deploy a three man attack and take a few risks. Queretaro FC will pack the defence line and try to get their goal on the counter attack.

There is no doubt in bookmakers minds that the home team are the favourite to win this game but they are still good value to do so.

Atlas vs Queretaro FC: Prediction

We are going to back the home team in this game to get the job done at the beginning of the season. The away side do not have a great record over Atlas for a few seasons now and Atlas do have a stronger squad.

There is only a 3 hour travel for the home side so that won’t be a problem but they will be the underdogs in this game to get anything so we will go for a close home win.
