Necaxa vs Club America
Mexico Liga MX Apertura
Date: Monday, 23rd July 2018
Kick-off at 2:00 UK/ 3:00 CET
Estadio Victoria (Aguascalientes).
Necaxa had a decent 2017/18 season despite falling short of play-off qualification by narrow 1 point margins in both Apertura and Clausura. However, the pick of the performances came in Cup competitions as they won the Copa MX and later Supercopa to round up a fine season.
Still, the accolades haven’t impressed the board and they opted for a managerial change this term. The former Mexican international Ignacio Ambríz
is removed from the role and he is replaced by former Zacatepec
head-coach Marcelo Michel Leaño.
On the other hand Club America had a solid season, but ended up without a silverware. They finished 3rd and 2nd in Apertura and Clausura and their title quest ended in the semifinals.
The former Mexican national coach or rather the controversial Miguel Herrera who took over the club last season will be hoping for a better season this term. The team had a decent pre-season and round up the proceedings with a morale boosting 1-1 draw against English Premier League outfit Manchester United on Thursday night.
Necaxa vs Club America Head-to-head
Necaxa are one of the few teams that managed to trouble America on a consistent basis. They bagged an away win and draw in the two fixtures last season.
Also, Necaxa are unbeaten in the last six league games at home against Club America. However, the latest three in the list are 1-1 stalemates, followed by three wins.
Necaxa vs Club America Prediction
There is a big difference in the quality of playing squad and stature of the two clubs, with Club America one of the best established in this highly competitive football league.
However, this is not a cake walk for the visitors, since history proves that Necaxa is capable of edging out results against elite teams on their own backyard.
Moreover, the hosts had lost just 1 of their last 17 games in the league and thus we are looking at Necaxa not to lose the match.
