Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on Chivas?
Chivas had their good run of games interrupted by the defeat to Puebla (0-1), in the last round. However, the players and the coaching staff know that it is not possible to let down everything that has been done so far because of a defeat.
Talking about the positive things about El Rebaño, we can’t forget midfielder Roberto Alvarado, who has contributed 3 assists so far and is the team’s lung, helping in defense and attack.
Alvarado’s partner in the midfield, Victor Guzmán, is the team’s top scorer. Attacking from further down the field, Guzmán has a great presence inside the area and finishes as well as a striker.
Chivas’ strong point is certainly the midfield, but, to face a team of the greatness of America, all sectors will need to be organized and concentrated to nullify the opponent and impose their style of play.
Why Bet on América?
América has the advantage of being superior in direct clashes against Chivas. In the last 20 games between them, América won 9, lost 5, and drew 6. The visitors will arrive full of confidence to face Guadalajara, as they beat the mighty Tigres away from home.
With 20 points conquered in 11 games, América still has good chances of fighting for the leadership and guaranteeing a comfortable position aiming at the elimination stage.
Experienced striker Henry Martin continues to score goals and lead América to victories. In the current season, the Mexican striker has already scored 10 goals and provided 3 assists for his teammates. His form since last year has been phenomenal, even in the good international friendlies that the Eagles have faced.
Against their traditional rivals, América fans hope that the good moment of their attackers continues and that the team can win another match.
Final Betting Analysis: Chivas vs. América
The confrontations between Chivas and América are always involved a lot of competitiveness, aggression, and goals. There are no clear favorites for this game, but the Azulcremas seem to be going through a better moment.
It will not be easy to stop Henry Martin, the top scorer in the Liga MX. Chivas will need a lot of disposition from their midfielders and a lot of attention from their defensive line and we believe that they’ll be incapable of doing so. Go for America’s victory in this game.
If you put $100 into America’s win, you could get $132 back for a total payout of $232
