Atletico San Luis will look to rebound after the most recent Clausura campaign as they failed to qualify for the postseason. Finishing with 16 points through 17 matches was good enough for 13th place in the 2024 Clausura table.

Meanwhile, Club America are the reigning and defending champions sweeping the Liga MX calendar year winning both the Apertura and the Clausura. Club America once again will be favoured to lift another trophy at the season's end. Las Aguilas kicked their season off by defeating Tigres 2-1 in Supercopa de la Liga MX adding another trophy to their cabinet.

Here, we will break down the betting odds and share our favourite picks for Atletico San Luis vs. Club America.

Atletico San Luis vs. Club America Betting Prediction

Atletico San Luis Preview

Solidifying his presence at the back is truth-worthy defender Juan Sanabria. The 24-year-old was durable throughout the last campaign and will be tasked to shut down the league's most lethal strikers once again. In over 1400 minutes played before this new club campaign, the Uruguayan led his club in duels won with 88.

Sharing the top scorers lead within the club was 30-year-old Leo who bagged four goals in the 2024 Clausura. In 53 appearances with Atletico San Luis, he has managed to register 15 goals. The likelihood of San Luis making a postseason appearance will depend on if Leo can create the offence needed to get his side over the finish line when the regular season concludes.

Club America Preview

Las Aguilas will be missing a key piece on Saturday as Diego Valdes suffered an injury in the Copa America with Chile. The 30-year-old is expected to miss time till late July. The Chilean international had eight goal contributions in 21 matches in the former campaign. The attacking midfielder's absence will be missed with his control of the middle of the pitch.

After a disappointing exit with Mexico in the 2024 Copa America, striker Julian Quinones will be available for his club. Last season he put up monster numbers across the board finding the back of the net 23 times while adding 10 assists in 52 matches in all competitions played. Look for Quinones to put up similar numbers in the Apertura.

Atletico San Luis vs. Club America - My pick

The away squad is no doubt by far the superior side entering this encounter. The books are offering a decent number for a side that has dominated Liga MX in the past year. Club America already have competitive game action under its belt, think it will carry on from last year's form and have its way with one of the smaller spending sides on its players in the competition. Look for Las Aguilas to kick off their campaign in style securing a win Saturday evening.
