Club America vs Necaxa Predictions and Picks

How much trouble will Necaxa give America this Saturday?

Despite their propensity for constantly dropping points, Necaxa have proven to be an inconsistent yet challenging group during any given weekend. Most recently defeating Juarez 1-0 before the start of the international break, Los Rayos have also held teams like Monterrey, Pachuca, Chivas and Tigres to draws this season.

And yet, America will probably be just a step too far for them. America are thriving under the management of Santiago Solari, and regardless of an expected absence of their leading goalscorer, America’s numerous other attacking figures should be able to capitalize on a noteworthy absence of Necaxa’s own.

Although it isn’t strange to see some odd results after an international break, this should be a fairly straightforward one for the home team.


America for the win.

Let’s not read too much into America’s 2-0 friendly loss to Monterrey during the international break. With a number of substitutions, rotations, and a few backups thrown into a starting XI, the defeat felt more like a training ground practice for a team that was saving its energy for the start of April.

And there’s an obvious reason for saving that energy. Since the start of 2021, Solari’s men have gradually picked up their pace game by game, looking metaphorically and literally at full pace as they charged through consecutive victories in the mid-point of the season.

With nine wins in 12 Liga MX matches — and technically 10 wins if we’re counting the game that was overturned due to an ineligible player on their bench — it made sense for Solari to take it easy last week during their Texas friendly.

Now fully recharged, America can begin their dominance once again, and heading into Week 13, they’ll be facing an opponent that will have an extremely noticeable Achilles’ heel.

Editor’s Picks

Necaxa’s Best Player Will Likely Be Missing

Mexico’s latest run in Olympic qualifying was bittersweet for Necaxa fans. While many were proud of Malagon for earning a place in a national team that eventually went on to earn a place in this year’s Olympic Games, countless were also devastated to see the injury suffered by the goalkeeper in the group stage of the competition.

Barring some sort of miraculous recovery, the 24-year-old star who was seen wearing a brace earlier this week will be missing for Necaxa’s massive game against America.

Malagon is not only a young leader for Los Rayos, but also a vital shot-stopper that has helped salvage the very few points that they’ve collected so far this season. And without their most impressive player, that can only spell doom for them this weekend.

America’s Attack Will Be Eyeing Plenty Of Goals

Even without top goalscorer Henry Martin — who is likely to be in the stands and recovering from an injury — America can still count on a talented list of creators and finishers.

Richard Sanchez, Pedro Aquino and Leonardo Suarez have all helped amass six assists for Las Aguilas. In the final third, Aquino and Sanchez have also both found the back of the net with help from others like Roger Martinez and Sebastian Cordova.

Cordova deserves a bit of attention as well. As the top goalscorer in the aforementioned Olympic qualifying tournament for the Concacaf region, the young Mexican will have an immense amount of confidence before taking on Necaxa.

Sanchez-Aquino Partnership Is The Envy Of The League

Let’s give a bit more spotlight to Sanchez and Aquino. While it’s easy to simply look at some of the goals and assists that they’ve taken part in, what has truly made them standout is their absolute dominance in the center of the field.

Playing in the middle of what appears to be a 4-4-2 or 4-2-3-1, both are incredibly well-balanced figures who not only support the attack, but also control their area of the pitch with defensive interventions.

And although Tigres fans from afar might point to their own midfield duo of Rafael Carioca and Guido Pizarro as being the most talented in the league, at the moment, there is no midfield partnership in Liga MX that has been more outstanding than Sanchez and Aquino.
