America vs. Pumas: Recent form, summary of last match, odds, upcoming fixtures
America (last five league games: WWWWL) has made it nearly halfway through the Liga MX season still in the top four, and survived in the Champions League to make it to its big matchup versus Atlanta United. There is more good news for the club, as it seems Colombian striker Roger Martínez is back in starting contention this weekend. The number nine has been frozen out of the team so far in 2020, but has been given a second chance for Herrera after transfers to both Europe and MLS broke down. Martínez’s last appearance for the club was his substitution in the 88th minute of the 2-1 win over Monterrey in the second leg of the Liguilla Finals in December, which America ultimately lost 4:2 on penalty kicks.
Pumas (last five league games: DWWLL) and head coach Míchel are above the playoff line, and on course to make the Liguilla for the first time in three seasons. This upcoming May mark nine years since the last trophy for Pumas, and while the beginning of the 2010s saw a more club that more consistently made the playoffs, there have been just three appearances and five different managers since 2015. Míchel is off to a good 2020 start, but the crucial thing is to finally make the playoffs and show the rest of the country that Pumas can still compete.
According to DraftKings Sportsbook, as of March 5:
- UNAM Pumas: +160 (wager $100 to win $160)
- Club América: +180 (wager $100 to win $180)
- Draw: +210 (wager $100 to win $210)
America: Wednesday, March 11 vs. Atlanta United (Concacaf Champions League); Sunday, March 15 vs. Cruz Azul (Liga MX)
Pumas: Saturday, March 14 at León (Liga MX)
