Club América has won the first two games of the new season, and is on top of the table with a +5 goal differential. This is a big week for Las Águilas, with two games in four days including a matchup with last season’s contender Santos Laguna.
Necaxa is off to a poor start this fall sitting in dead last in the league with 0 points, 0 goals scored and four goals allowed. It is a very difficult start to the season playing América and UANL Tigres in the first three weeks, but the performances need to improve and hopefully score more than zero goals in each game.
Here’s how América’s Starting XI looked in the last match (4-0 win vs. Tijuana):
- Ochoa; Reyes, Cáceres, Valdez, Sánchez; López, Gonzalez, Sánchez, Martínez; Viñas, Córdova
According to the oddsmakers at MGM, América is favored to win on Friday:
- América, -120 (bet $120 to win $100)
- Necaxa, +325 (bet $100 to win $325)
- Draw, +250
- vs. Santos Laguna, Thursday, August 13, 10pm ET

Stream Club América live: The best streaming services for Mexican futbol
When it comes to Club America and the rest of Liga MX, you need a guide to how to navigate all the streaming services carrying Mexican futbol. Here’s that guide:
If you’re looking for a streamlined, cost-effective streaming package, check out Sling TV. It offers two basic cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, each of which costs $30 per month. There’s also the third option of getting Sling Orange + Blue for just $45 per month. You’ll get more Sling TV channels by choosing Sling Blue, with its 40 channels including sports favorites like NBCSN and cable mainstays like Food Network and Discovery Channel. But Sling Orange brings must-haves Disney Channel and ESPN as part of its package.
To get FS1, Sling Blue is your pick, while Sling Orange + Best of Spanish gets you ESPN Deportes.
|Orange + Blue||$45|
FuboTV started as a streaming service geared toward sports fans, but it’s evolved into a broadly-appealing option with entertainment and news options alongside its robust sports choices. Depending on the package, you can access as many as 181 FuboTV channels. If you’re looking to be entertained, Bravo, IFC, MTV, and VH1 are options even at Fubo’s most basic tier. The Fubo channel list still includes plenty of sports, including the Fubo Sports Network, which has original programming mixing sports and humor. The FuboTV cost starts at $54.99 a month, and with Disney Media favorites like ABC, ESPN, and the Disney Channel coming on board in 2020, some who were on the fence about Fubo are giving it another look.
Fubo is a soccer lover’s playland, and you’ll get a lot of Liga MX there. The Standard tier gets you FS1 and TUDN, plus Telemundo in some local markets, with Fox Deportes available with a sports add-on. Expect ESPN Deportes to come online when the Disney Media channels join Fubo later this summer.
AT&T TV Now
If you’re already looking to AT&T for your wireless needs, you might consider AT&T TV Now to cover streaming for you. AT&T TV Now channels start with Plus and Max, which even include HBO. Then, AT&T plans expand from there, approaching cable selection and pricing with AT&T TV Now’s biggest packages. AT&T streaming also comes with Cloud DVR, letting you record up to 20 hours of TV per month.
FS1 and Telemundo are available at the baseline Plus tier, with ESPN Deportes and Fox Deportes available for Optimo Mas customers, TUDN available for Optimo Mas or Ultimate subscribers, and Univision available at anything above the Max level (starting with Optimo Mas and Entertainment).
Vidgo offers a package for under $40 a month that pulls together more than 60 English-language channels into its National English Package. Vidgo channels include ABC, Fox, the ESPN family of channels (including ESPN Deportes), and it’s one of the few streaming services that carries BeIN Sports. But it’s like Fubo in that, even though it started out for streaming sports, it carries a lot more now. Vidgo’s Social TV platform also adds to the fun.
Core and Plus English subscribers get Fox Deportes and ESPN Deportes as well as FS1, whereas both Latino packages bring Fox Deportes and ESPN Deportes.
