Why you should back Club America
Las Aguilas have won five straight, including a 2-0 victory against the Philadelphia Union in the Concacaf Champions League. They kicked off with a 0-0 draw with Queretaro but have outscored league foes 7-2 since then. Depth has been the club's strength, with Roger Martinez able to fill in while top scorer Henry Martin was off helping Mexico win bronze at the Tokyo Olympics. Martinez and Alvaro Fidalgo both scored last week and lead the team with two goals apiece.
Martin scored a team-high 15 goals last season, and the team's depth also allowed him to rest last week along with other key players like Sebastián Córdova and Mauro Laínez. The creative midfield is the engine of the team, with Cordova, Fidalgo and Richard Sanchez able to take full advantage of the attacking skills of Martin, Martinez and Lainez. Las Aguilas have lost just once to Tijuana in the last 12 meetings (7-4-1) and will be wary of letting the visitors pull off an upset.
Why you should back Tijuana
Los Xolos come in off consecutive 1-1 draws after starting the season with three straight losses. They took the lead in the games against Puebla and Juarez but allowed them to equalize. Lucas Rodriguez, who scored six goals in MLS for D.C. United in 2019 before playing sparingly with Estudiantes in Argentina last year, scored both goals over the past two games. Brayan Angulo came over from Puebla, and the 31-year-old provides leadership and creativity at left back.
Club Tijuana was founded in 2007 and made its debut in the top division in 2011, then won the Apertura the following year. It hasn't had much success since then, and finished 15th in the Apertura last year before ending up 14th in the Clausura. It has seen significant turnover and has yielded eight goals and scored four in the five games.
