Veracruz vs Atlas – 10:00 PM – Azteca America
Veracruz (9th) fell 2-1 to Santos Laguna last weekend and they could find themselves in last place in the relegation standings with another loss here. Although the Tiburones Rojos are perfect at home so far this season, they did struggle there in the Apertura, and they have four losses in their last six home games in all competitions. They will also be without the suspended Cristian Penilla for this match. However, although it’s early, Veracruz has looked much better this season than last and they will look to get back to winning ways in this one.
As for Atlas (12th), the Rojinegros beat Tigres UANL 2-0 last weekend to give them their first win of the season. They will now look to make it two in a row when they go back on the road. Their first away game of the Clausura was a bad one – a 4-1 loss – but they did have a numerical disadvantage for most of that match. They’ll look for a better road performance in this game as they look to continue climbing up the table.
