Why you should back Club America
Las Aguilas have been one of the league's most consistent teams and have certainly been tested to start the season. They held the ball for 64 percent of the match against Monterrey and had 55 percent possession against Atlas but couldn't find enough goals. Jonathan Rodriguez and Alejandro Zendejas scored Saturday. Rodriguez had been a prolific scorer at Cruz Azul and Santos before a brief move to Saudi Arabia. Meanwhile, Zendejas scored four goals in 14 games for Club America last season.
The team has plenty of firepower, with Alvaro Fidalgo (six goals in 2021-22) and Henry Martin (five) capable of big moments. Add in young players like Federico Vinas (two goals) and 19-year-old Roman Martinez, and Las Aguilas are very dangerous. The team also added Nestor Araujo to lead the back line, and Guillermo Ochoa is one of the league's best goalkeepers and a key leader for the team. America went 10-4-3 at Estadio Azteca last season, scoring 25 goals in those 17 games.
Why you should back Toluca
Los Diablos Rojos have added a ton of talent, and the team has started out on fire. Toluca showed a lot of grit against league champ Atlas, scoring three goals in the first 15 minutes then holding on for dear life. It was even down a man for the final 20 minutes after a Marcel Ruiz red card, but held on for the three points. Leonardo Fernandez, Fernando Navarro and Valber Huerta all scored in the match. Fernandez was the team's top scorer in 2021-22 with seven goals.
Toluca came into the Apertura as a popular dark horse after adding striker Carlos Gonzalez and goalkeeper Tiago Volpi, among others. Gonzalez was lost in the shuffle with Tigres but had nine goals in 45 games with them, starting just 26. Volpi was the Queretaro starter for four-plus seasons before moving to Brazil. Toluca took 22 points from 17 road matches last season and it is 2-1-1 in the last four meetings.
