Wednesday evening, we will see another instalment of the El Super Clásico as Club America travels to Estadio Akron to take on Chivas Guadalajara. This first leg of the semi-final will be this bitter rivalry's 255th all-time encounter. The previous 38 clashes in all competitions have seen Club America collect 18 wins while sharing the points on 10 occasions. The most recent El Súper Clásico saw both clubs failing to hit the scoresheet in a scoreless draw back on March 16th.

Chivas Guadalajara scraped by Toluca, winning 1-0 on a two-legged quarterfinal skirmish. Saturday's result for the Rebaño Sagrado they picked up their fifth straight clean sheet. Playing defensively sound soccer has had its consequences up front as Chivas have dried up in the goals department only netting five goals in their last five.

Meanwhile, Club America narrowly squeaked past Pachuca winning the two-legged scuffle on away goals. The 2024 first-place Clausura side has limped along in recent weeks only managing to collect one victory in their last six matches in all competitions. The compressed schedule for Las Aguilas is affecting this side with signs of fatigue on display.

Here, we will break down the betting odds and share our favourite picks for Chivas Guadalajara vs. Club America.

Chivas Guadalajara vs. Club America Betting Predictions at bet365

Chivas Guadalajara Preview

Finishing at the top of the leaderboard in the goals department for the 2024 Clausura campaign is Victor Guzman netting six goals. The pressure will squarely be on the midfielder as his goal contributions have evaporated, the 29-year-old has only registered one goal in his last 11 games in all competitions.

Playing in the best form of his career, Chivas is experiencing superb goalkeeping from Jose Rangel. His last eight starts have seen the 24-year-old pick up seven clean sheets. During the 2024 Clausura regular season, Rangel was one of the busiest keepers making a total of 60 saves.

Club America Preview

Like his counterpart on Chivas, Club America is also receiving first-rate net minding from Luis Malagon. In 17 starts during this year’s Clausura season, the 27-year-old has only conceded 13 goals. Malagon maintains one of the best save percentages in Liga MX with a 79.4 percent average.

Terrorizing the oppositions goalkeepers all campaign long is Julian Quinones. The 27-year-old finished with the highest total of goals on this squad in the 2024 Clausura with six goals. Bagging a goal last weekend against Quinones put his goalless drought to end at five games.

Chivas Guadalajara vs. Club America - My Pick

El Super Clasico during the regular season is hostile enough, with this two-legged semi-final with a trip to the finals on the line, expect both sides to bring their best game. Chivas where a dominant home side in 2024, only walking away with zero points once in eight games at Estadio Akron. Their goals-against average at home was 1.13, with that stingy home defence it could be a long frustrating night for the visitors.

On the other hand, Club America did have the best away record in the Clausura collecting 17 points in nine home games. That said they still on four occasions didn’t catalogue a win. Las Aguilas only have one away win in Liga MX play since March 2nd. Think we see Club America struggle in this first leg, Chivas have more than what it takes to hang around for 90 minutes.
