Atlas Preview – Can Atlas bounce back at home?

Atlas were handed a heavy 3-1 defeat away at Tijuana in their opening match of the new Mexico Liga MX Apertura phase as the domestic top flight season starts a new term following the earlier enforced finish to the previous campaign due to the lockdown.

This opening defeat became Atlas’s sixth league defeat in seven matches and wasn’t the kind of start they were looking for, but they return to their Estadio Jalisco for this Monday evening clash against UNAM Pumas where the hosts will be looking to bounce back with a win.

Atlas found themselves second from bottom in the Clausura phase before the season was brought to an early end having lost seven of their 10 matches so they won’t have been too disappointed with the early curtailment, but goals featured on a regular basis where Atlas were concerned with four of their last six matches seeing over 2.5 goals.

There’s also been goals when Atlas and Pumas meet too as six of the last seven meetings have produced three goals or more.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Pumas UNAM Preview – Can Pumas pick up where they left off?

By contrast, Pumas would have felt themselves a little hard done by as the visitors were placed 6th in the Clausura before the lockdown was imposed although they headed into the early curtailment of the season having failed to win any of their last four matches, losing three of these.

Nevertheless, Pumas made a good start to this new Apertura phase as they recorded a 3-2 home win over Queretaro and they’ll be keen to make it back-to-back wins on Monday evening when they make their way to face Atlas whom they’ve beaten in their last two meetings, 5-1 and 2-1 respectively.

However, results away from home have been generally pretty ordinary where Pumas are concerned as the visitors have won just one of their last 13 matches but four of Pumas’s last five away matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals.
