The Atlas vs Santos match will be this Saturday, March 16, 2013 (11:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Caliente.  The ‘rojinegros’ want to remain at least in the 2nd spot of the standings.  To do this they will have to tie a difficult Santos Laguna, while a win leaves them with a good opportunity of reaching the 1st place.

Club Atlas has had a tremendous memorable season which began with the fight against relegation.  Not only are those talks gone, but this team has not lost since Week 3 (against 1st place Tigres), and they are currently in 2nd place with 23 points.  This is a team that does not have great all-stars, but they have a great coach and a winning mentality. On Saturday they will play one of their most difficult matches of the week when they face Santos.

Santos Laguna is finally in top form, and they are winning games.  They are on a 3 game winning streak, and are in 4th place with 18 points.  As a team that has been on the rise, one would suggest that if their form keeps on rising, that this team will be a real title contender.  Their game against Atlas at the Estadio Jalisco will serve to demonstrate just how real their contention is.

Atlas vs Santos Prediction

This one may as well be the game of the week.  Two excellent teams who are in the top sector of the rankings and who have not lost in several weeks meet up.  Atlas is a win away from entering the playoffs, and its stadium will be packed to the roof with a loud fan base.  However, Santos is beginning to demonstrate what they are capable of, and the game against Atlas will serve as a great parameter in their form.  The Atlas vs Santos match will end in a 2-1 win for the visiting team.
