The America vs Morelia Liga MX Week 7 match will take place this Saturday, August 24, 2013 (3:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Azteca.  This is the must-watch game of the week, featuring a league-leading Morelia, and a Club America squad that has not yet lost this season.

Club America has played four matches so far this season (games against Tigres and Xolos postponed to October), and has won three of them and tied once. Club America currently sits in 4th place with 10 points, with 2 more games still left to play compared to the other teams above them in the standings.

Miguel Herrera made sure that his team carried all of the momentum earned from winning the Clausura 2013. America is playing great offensively -9 goals scored in four matches- and has a solid defense, which has only allowed 3 goals.

Mina has been tasked with replacing Benitez, a difficult challenge, considering Benitez was the best goalscorer to play in the Liga MX in its recent history. Nonetheless, Mina has done alright, scoring 2 goals, helping Jimenez score three, and driving America towards a successful start of the season.

For their part, Morelia has had a great run, coach Bustos has created a super-offensive squad that steamrolls the opposing teams. In six matches, Morelia has won 4 games, tied one and lost one. In those six matches, Morelia has scored 12 goals, although, it has also received 7.

Morelia is a team that focuses on attacking, and enjoys a free-flowing game, which eventually leads to both Morelia and the opponent scoring plenty of goals. In the America vs Morelia match, we can expect plenty of offense, and at least 3 goals will be scored.

America vs Morelia Prediction

This will be the hardest test of the season for Miguel Herrera’s squad. Club America will be playing at home, facing a Morelia squad that will go out and attack. Expect a high-offense, high-scoring game with plenty of action. Both teams have been playing great this season, but I believe America has the upper-hand playing at home. The America vs Morelia match will end in a 2-1 win for Club America.
