After a weekend to remember, with a beating in the Mexican derby, Club América faces a complicated visit to Toluca on Matchday 9 of the Liga MX.
The ‘Diablos Rojos’ are coming off a 2-1 loss to Tijuana last time out, making Robert Morales’ second-half stoppage-time conversion useless.
The ‘Águilas’ thrashed Chivas de Guadalajara 4-0 at the Azteca stadium, thanks to a brace by Diego Valdés and goals by Alejandro Zendejas and Uruguayan Brian Rodríguez.
Sunday, September 24 at 2:00 pm ET in the Estadio Nemesio Diez
Club América +129
Where Can I Watch?
Why Bet on Toluca?
Toluca is historically a team that is always fighting for playoff positions and occasionally reaches the finals. This season has been no exception, as they are in seventh place.
On the last matchday, the Nemesio Diez team lost 2-1 in their visit to Tijuana, so Robert Morales’ goal was of little value. It must be said that in the first few matches the ‘Diablos Rojos’ have not had a regular performance, as they lost twice, won three times, and have three draws.
However, it can be said that Toluca’s squad includes one of the best strikers in Mexican soccer, Juan Domíguez, who has scored four goals so far.
In addition, the 10-time Liga MX champions have a favorable streak against the ‘Águilas’. They have not lost in their last three meetings.
Ignacio Ambriz’s men have taken seven points from 12 at home and are injury-free so far.
Why Bet on America?
América wants to be champion again in Mexico and this season they have been on a roll. The team is in third place with 14 points, two points behind the leader, which for the moment is Atlético San Luis.
On the last matchday, the ‘Águilas’ had a feast with their classic rival, Chivas de Guadalajara. They won 4-0, and more than that, completely dominated and obliterated their bitter rivals.
This victory came even though their best player up front, Julián Quiñones (4 goals), was not accurate in front of goal, but it can be said that the team from the capital is a good offensive team, scoring 16 goals, while they have only conceded 8.
Interestingly, this will only be the second away game for the ‘Azulcremas’, who in their only other outing beat Cruz Azul 3-2.
Defender Néstor Araujo should be available for Brazilian coach Jardine.
