Pumas UNAM are currently sitting in ninth place in the table and are undefeated in their last three. With last weekend's victory over Leon, it was the first time in 2024 that Pumas were able to string together back-to-back victories.

Pumas UNAM Preview

More or less it’s a must-win match for Pumas on Saturday to ensure they can book their place in the Clausura playoffs. Currently possessing a three-point advantage over the last playoff mark, Pumas will have to do something they haven’t achieved in over two years, which is win three matches in a row.

Taking on a juggernaut like Club America, Pumas will need a brave performance from goalkeeper Julio Gonzalez. In 15 matches the 32-year-old has accumulated seven clean sheets. Last weekend's performance saw Gonzalez put in a man-of-the-match showing, manufacturing a total of four saves including making two diving saves.

Club America Preview

Surging throughout the 2024 Clausura, Club America has maintained their elite level through 15 Liga MX matches. They own one of the most potent offences in Mexico averaging 1.8 goals per match which is tied for third in the competition. More impressively they are flourishing on the backend only conceding an average of 0.6 goals per match which is tops in the tournament.

Within this Las Aguilas squad, sizzling at the moment is midfielder Diego Valdes. In the last five matches played in all competitions, the 30-year-old has bagged four goals and two assists. The Chilean international most recent putting saw him hit the scorer’s sheet twice, added an assist and registered four shots toward the target in 77 minutes of play.

Pumas UNAM vs. Club America - My Pick

This is a massive game with high stakes for each club, but we should see the superior team walk away with the victory giving Club America that clinched top seed in the table. Feel like this could be a fixture where Pumas will play not lose rather than going for it. Club America is the more established side and with all that winning pedigree, think they can pull through here as they are one of the most in-form clubs in Mexico. As stated above it’s been a while since Pumas has strung together three wins in a row, and getting into a collision course with the top side in Liga MX could halt the home squads winning run.
