The Aguilas return home, looking to keep their unbeaten start to the 2018 Clausura alive against the struggling Rojinegros

After losing all three games to start the season, the road doesn't get much easier for Atlas on Saturday when it faces Club America at the Estadio Azteca. 

The Guadalajara club named Ruben Omar Romano manager earlier in the week after it sacked Jose "Profe" Cruz a week earlier. 

Romano will hope to turn things around in his third stint at the helm of the club, but faces a difficult task in his first match in charge.

GAME PREVIEW


Henry Martin Club America

Club America is unbeaten in three games to start the 2018 Clausura, but goals have been hard to come by for Miguel Herrera's men. 

The Aguilas have just three goals in three games so far, but their opponent on Saturday could prove to be the perfect remedy. 

Atlas has the second-worst defense in Liga MX through three matches, conceding eight times en route to three consecutive defeats.

Ravel Morrison has been one of the lone bright spots for the Rojinegros so far, and the English attacker will look to make it three straight matches with a goal in Saturday's game at the Estadio Azteca. 

America will be without the suspended Mateus Uribe but will be hoping to see new signing Jeremy Menez debut after the 30-year-old joined the club earlier this month from Turkish side Antalyaspor.

Anything less than three points will be seen as a disappointment for Herrera's side, who were able to rest in midweek while Atlas had a Copa MX match against Tampico Madero.
