Why you should back Club America
America’s dip in success isn’t easily traced back to one particular problem. Statistically, they haven’t been outplayed by recent opponents, the issue has simply been that their shots have not gone in, while their opposition’s have. The poor luck in its own defensive third wasn’t as much of an issue in America’s last match against UNAM Pumas, as both sides put just two of their eight shots on frame and neither scored.
Queretaro is a bit thinner on its back line, without Arelibetsiel Hernandez available for the match following a straight red in his last start. He was in-and-out of the starting 11 for Queretaro, but he’ll be altogether unavailable while on suspension. Queretaro’s only decisive recent win came against 15th place Mazatlan two matches ago, 2-0, but the team has otherwise conceded in four of its last five outings.
Why you should back Queretaro
Queretaro seems to have found something with forward Angel Spulveda, who came to the team following the Apertura regular season. He finished with just two assists for Club Necaxa and zero goals, but since coming to Queretaro, he’s scored three times. Queretaro desperately needed the infusion of goal-scoring after finishing Apertura with the fewest goals scored (11).
Although America was able to take a draw from its last match, it has struggled to contain opposing attacks. In five of its seven matches in Clausura, Club America has allowed multiple goals. Against Pachuca on February 20, Club America conceded three times, and veteran goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa has a save percentage of just 68.9 in his last five starts.
