Why you should back Leon

Club Leon has been the superior side to this point in Liga MX play during the 2022-23 season, and Leon is unbeaten in its last three home fixtures against Club America. Lucas Di Yorio is a key to the club's success, and the 25-year-old from Argentina puts pressure on any opponent. He is currently leading Liga MX with four non-penalty goals this season, and Di Yorio is No. 2 in Liga MX in goals overall.

He keys a very talented attacking unit alongside fellow standouts in Joel Campbell and Victor Davila. Leon has the edge in scoring double the goals of Club America this season, as the opponent has only three goals, the fewest in the league. Club America is also winless on the road this season in a small sample. The edge in playing at home could be pivotal in this critical fixture.

Why you should back America

While Club America is off to a bit of a rough start this season, the club sits atop the Liga MX coefficient table. America posted the best regular season record in Liga MX in 2021-22, losing only seven of 34 matches. Club America also posted a top-five record in road matches, with no fear in stepping away from the home venue. Club America had the best defense in Liga MX a year ago, allowing only 27 goals, and the club ranked in the top five with 45 goals and 28 assists. Overall, Club America was No. 2 in goal differential at +18, and the side's defense has been stout this season with only five goals allowed. 

Club Leon is also scuffling a bit in its own right, ranking in the bottom five of Liga MX in assists a season ago. Leon was also a below-average home side last season with only five wins in 17 matches. This season, Club Leon has only one clean sheet and Club America should be able to find its offensive footing.
