Atlas vs Toluca
Mexico – Liga MX Guard1anes
Date: Friday, 14 August 2020
Kick-off at 1:00 UK/ 2:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Jalisco (Guadalajara).
Atlas is slowly building up their form in the campaign, and the 1-1 draw on the road against San Luis last time out after two consecutive losses is a comforting stat for the team returning home. All three fixtures in the schedule have seen both teams score.
Playing at home has been the strongest suit for Los Zorros in their overall schedule. The draw from the last match will be a ray of hope for the host to make a comeback. Toluca, on the other end, will have trouble in the game with their poor away form.
With just one win from their three league clashes so far, Los Escarlatas is slightly ahead of the home team in the table. But the 2-1 loss on the road in their previous match against Mazaltan FC will hold them back in the encounter at Jalisco stadium.
Atlas vs Toluca Head-to-head (h2h)
- The visitor has recorded three of the last five wins.

- Both teams have scored in the recent three fixtures.
- The host has won two of the last three matches at home.
Atlas vs Toluca Prediction
Atlas will search for their maiden win in the league this season, but will still have the advantage of playing at home. It is only their second home match this season, and Diego Cocca still has time to pick up his team from the previous defeat at home.
Toluca hasn’t won their last dozen outings in the schedule across all major competitions. So, their poor away form will probably reflect in the upcoming match. To be safer, the double chance favoring Atlas will probably serve as the best bet for the punters.
With a 3 point lead over the host, Los Escarlatas will not back up without a fight. The tip for BTTS will probably come in handy while expecting goals from both teams in ninety minutes. Since the host is the favorites to win, the tip for Atlas to hold a +1 handicap will also be a suitable option.
