The storied Mexican clubs are only seperated by six points and will both by looking at landing three vital points.
With the big news of the week in Mexico being the breakaway of the clubs to form their own league, many have forgotten about the big match today at the legendary Estadio Azteca when Club America hosts Cruz Azul.
Coming into the match, America has won its last three and scored three goals in each of its last two matches againt Santos and Puebla respectively. The club currently sports a record of 9-3-4 (W-L-T), which sees it in a three-way tie for third in the Mexican Primera standings. But more impressive is its away record, currently at 5-1-3, which is no easy task in the often hostile Mexican league. America at 2.00 is not a bad selection at all.
The draw is currently set at 3.20 as is the Cruz Azul away win on Ladbrokes.com. Cruz Azul's home record is 4-2-3.
Cruz Azul is 6-4-6 on the season and was impressive in its last three matches, which saw it win by three goals in each of them; a 3-0 away victory at Toluca, a 4-1 beating of Paraguayan club Nacional in Copa Libertadores action, and a 5-2 home victory over U.A. de G. Los Cementaros' goal scoring prowess has been spread evenly between its forwards, but Edixon Perea in particular looked strong, having scored a pair in the last match.
The home/home halftime/fulltime result sits right now at 3.40, while the draw/home would see a 4.50 payout. The draw/away is at a high 9.00, while the away/away is at 6.00.
