América vs. Necaxa: Preview
Club América returns to Liga MX action this weekend at home against 11th-placed Necaxa, after Las Águilas advanced in the Concacaf Champions League over Guatemalan club Comunicaciones FC in a penalty shootout on Wednesday.
América enters Week 8 at the top of the table with 16 points, and has had a much better start this season than in the Apertura, when the club eventually made the playoff as a six seed and lost to eight-seed Monterrey in the Liguilla final. América enters the matchup just one point clear of León in 2nd, with UNAM Pumas in touching distance two points behind ahead of Clásico Capitalino in Week 9.

América vs. Necaxa: Recent form, summary of last match, odds, upcoming fixtures
América (last five league games: LWWWW) narrowly avoided an embarrassment in midweek when Victor Aguilera’s equalizer gave América life and set up the team’s ultimately victorious penalty shootout in CCL. Despite the slim margin of victory, the club rolls on, with a quarterfinal against Atlanta United looming large. América has been much better in the league, however, with four consecutive victories since the loss to Juarez earlier this month.
Necaxa (last five league games: WDLLL) is in need of a result as a loser of three straight, so the trip to Azteca could not come at a worse time. New head coach Alfonso Sosa has struggled since taking the reins from Guillermo Vásquez in January, and an ugly loss could put him on the hot seat. (The club on its fourth manager in 18 months.)
According to the DraftKings Sportsbook oddsmakers (as of February 28):
- América, -175
- Necaxa, +460
- Draw, +285
América: Friday, March 6 at UNAM Pumas (Liga MX)
Necaxa: Sunday, March 8 vs. Morelia (Liga MX)
