This game is a duel that many people have been waiting for. Club América will receive Monterrey this Sunday with many changes for both teams if we compare them with their own versions back on their last match-up.
After the COVID-pause, a new season has just started and so far, América are placed 1st with 3 victories, 1 draw, and 1 loss. In the meantime, Monterrey are 11th after 1 victory, 3 draws, and 1 loss as well. These results are just a small detail to consider as the season is on the first steps.
The last time that both teams saw each other in this historic stadium was in the final of the opening leg of this league, where Monterrey took the victory in the penalty kicks. Later they played again this year and América took revenge. Now, after the virus, everything is different.
For start, the Azteca Stadium will be closed for the fans, which means almost 100 thousand people not supporting the home team. Also, América will have some important absences like Jorge Sanchez who tested positive for COVID a few days ago, and Richard Sanchez who received a red card in the last match. Finally, the team is coming from a humiliating 4-1 defeat from last week against. Now, talking about Monterrey, they are the current champions but they seem to have lost the magic touch. After their championship, they have been able to win only once. It was at home and against Toluca, a team that almost faced relegation last year.
This hasn’t been the best start for a champion and certainly, they won’t feel too much confidence this weekend. The rival, América, will miss some good players, but their bench is well equipped. Besides, they started the season with a good rhythm and this is a perfect chance to impose their game against a great rival and maintain themselves on the top of the table. For those reasons, I will place my bet for América with a -0.25 AH. If you want to enjoy the best odds and highest limits on the market, you should also register on the best betting software.
