The Club America vs Chiapas Liga MX match will take place this Saturday, March 15, 2014 (8:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Victor Manuel Reyna in Chiapas. This match features a struggling Club America that is desperate for points, and a modest Chiapas squad that could climb up in to the playoff spots with a victory over the Azulcremas.
Turco Mohamed has not had a good start with Club America, his squad currently sits in 5th place with 15 points. Although his team’s current standings is not bad, America’s recent form is, the team has lost four out of the last five matches, including the last three matches held at the Estadio Azteca. Last week, Club America were up 2-0 over Santos, only to end up losing 2-4 in front of a shocked home crowd.
Mohamed has been unable to decipher what lineup and formation will work for his team; Turco is still sticking with the 5-3-2 formation Miguel Herrera used, instead of the 4-3-3 formation Turco used, with great success, at Tijuana. This far into the season, I believe it is unlikely Turco will try to add in a new formation, expect to see the same 5-3-2.
Chiapas currently sits in 12th place with 12 points, although it could potentially move into the top 8 spots with a win over America. This modest squad, coached by Sergio Bueno, is expected to do little more than end up at mid-table, and they are doing just that. If Turco hopes to ends this awful losing streak, there might be no better team than Chiapas.
Club America vs Chiapas Prediction
The Club America vs Chiapas match will be an interesting game, given that America will be forced to go after the win. Turco Mohamed must be certainly feeling the pressure now, after a decent start, his team has stalled, and is in free-fall. Turco needs to earn the three points against Chiapas, a weak opponent that shouldn’t prove to be too much of a difficult opponent.
Look for Mohamed to repeat the 5-3-2 formation with the same players. The Club America vs Chiapas match will end in a 1-1 draw. America has been struggling lately, and has shown no signs of improvements, so I doubt they will get the win. I still think America will reach the playoffs, but won’t advance too far in the competition. If I had to guess now, I would say Turco will remain as head coach this season.
