Atlas suffered an away defeat in the first round against Club Tijuana with a 3:1 score. The first part, more or less, went by in balance between them as two goals were seen, one from both sides.

In the continuation, the home team took control of the ball possession and managed to raise their lead early. The home team looked a bit confused on the field that day, and with a setback in the 60th minute, when they received a red card, their fate in this one was sealed. With an own goal, scored by the guests in the added time, the final score in this one was set.

Atlas is at the 14th place in the overall standings, with no points, but this is the start of the season, and surely, many exciting matches await us in the weeks to come.
UNAM Pumas come into this match, after a pretty dynamic one in the last round against Queretaro, when they recorded a 3:2 home victory. They were able to score first in the 44th minute, and this goal proved to be the most important in this clash.

In the second part, a mixture of confusion and offensive play was seen, as both teams were effective, scoring both via own goals, but also once regularly each. As already mentioned, the goal from the first part made a difference in this one and brought Pumas the first victory this season.

They are at the 7th place with three points, and a one-game less, so they are in a good position to climb higher at the table with points in this one.
With a very tough win in the last round, the visitors are entering this one with positive thoughts. They are generally a more effective team, but, as we witnessed in the last round, can be unpredictable in the back, so there is a chance of a draw here.
UNAM Pumas 0 Asian Handicap
