This matchday 8 of the Liga MX opening tournament will be full of very exciting matches that will completely paralyze millions of Mexican fans. This time, we will have the so-called Tapatío Classic, which pits the two teams from the city of Guadalajara, Chivas vs. Atlas.
Both teams must take to the field, ignoring the bad start of the season they have had if they want to return to the path of victory and thus be able to fight for the positions that grant a pass to the next Liguilla. Both Atlas and Chivas are closer to the bottom than to the top of the table and this match could be the turning point in the future of both teams.
The Tapatío Classic between Chivas and Atlas will be played this Saturday, August 13, 2022, at Estadio Akron, home of Chivas.

Why Bet on Atlas
The current two-time champions of Liga MX, Atlas, arrive at this half of the tournament without showing a shred of what was once that devastating team that managed to win two consecutive championships. Right now, Atlas is ranked #14 in the standings with a poor record of 2 wins, 1 draw, and 4 losses.
Atlas is coming off a very good win in their last game against Querétaro, with a crushing score of 3-1. Both the fans and the team themselves hope that this will be the awakening of the champion.
Why Bet on Chivas
At the halfway point of this opening tournament, Chivas de Guadalajara still does not know what a victory is, despite having a schedule where they had not faced the big teams. Their low level of play, together with the absence of some players due to injuries, has caused Chivas to be located in the penultimate place in the standings, with a record of 5 draws and 2 defeats.
Chivas is coming off a 1-2 loss in their visit to Mazatlan.
Final Betting Analysis: Atlas vs. Chivas
Although on paper neither team is in great shape, there is no doubt that the fact of playing a Tapatío Classic will always make them give more than what they have, and that is why we can expect to enjoy the best version of each team.
At MyBookie.ag we can see that there is a Moneyline that favors Guadalajara at +118, while Atlas starts at +265.
Although throughout history the Tapatío Classic has been dominated by Chivas de Guadalajara, in recent years Atlas has managed, with very good results, to counteract the hegemony of its rival.
Despite this, for this match, our winner’s chip is for Chivas and we predict a score of 2-1.
Look for a straight win on the Moneyline Chivas. If you put $100 on Chivas at +118, you’ll be looking at a $118 win with a total payout of $218.
