The Atlante vs Dorados 2013 Copa MX match will be this Tuesday, January 15, 2013 (10:00 PM EDT) at the Estadio Andres Quintana Roo. Atlante has had a poor start to their Clausura 2013 Liga MX season, therefore a win against Dorados of Sinaloa in the domestic cup could help them obtain form. Dorados is the reigning champion as they won the Apertura 2012 Copa MX and Tuesday could be the beginning of another title run.
Atlante is ready for a win, even if it is in the Copa MX and with their bench players. This is a team that has a weak bench and a poor youth system, therefore the cup will show just how good their substitutes really are. The team coached by Ricardo Lavolpe is not a favorite in the Liga MX, and neither are they in the Copa MX. In other words, the team from Cancun will use this tournament to keep their ‘B’ players busy in case they are needed in the first team.
Dorados of Sinaloa made a great run in the Apertura 2012 Copa MX when they defeated Correcaminos in the final to win the cup. On Tuesday another journey begins in which they will attempt to win their second consecutive title. This cup will be important in terms of form, because just as first division teams, Ascenso MX squads use this tournament to give their reserve players some minutes on the field.
Atlante vs Dorados Prediction
Dorados is a good Ascenso MX squad who could be the next team in the first division. Undoubtedly a good team, they will give Atlante ‘B’ a good fight. However, Atlante is urged to obtain a victory due to their poor start in the Liga MX. The Atlante vs Dorados 2013 match will have a 2-1 score for the home side.
