América vs. Cruz Azul: Recent form, summary of last match, odds, upcoming fixtures
América (last five Liga MX games: WWWLD) displayed a dominant performance in its last appearance, winning 3-0 at the Azteca over MLS powerhouse Atlanta United in Concacaf Champions League play. Roger Martínez was on the bench but was not needed, as United allowed three goals in the first half. América and coach Herrera, who bested Atlas 2-1 in its last Liga MX tilt—one that was just 10-on-10 for more than a half of play—will be facing a much tougher opponent on Sunday.
Cruz Azul (last five league games: WWWWW) has been a scoring machine in 2020, already at six games with three goals or more in all competitions this year. Cruz Azul's showdown in LA was postponed Thursday night due to the COVID-19 outbreak, so the squad will be fresh this weekend after having no games this week since the Tijuana victory. A victory in the Clásico on Sunday would work wonders for Cruz Azul in terms of morale, and would also put the club four points ahead of everyone besides León heading into the final stretch of the regular season.
According to DraftKings Sportsbook, as of March 13:
- América, +140 (wager $100 to win $140)
- Cruz Azul, +200
- Draw, +210
América, Saturday, March 31 vs. León (Liga MX)
Cruz Azul, Saturday, March 31 at Puebla (Liga MX)
