The Club America vs Pumas UNAM Liga MX ‘Clasico Capitalino‘ will take place this Saturday, August 30, 2014 (3:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Azteca. Aguilas and Universitarios will face-off in another episode of this Mexico City rivalry in which both teams are currently in contrasting forms. America goes into the classic as the best team in the Apertura 2014, while Pumas will play their second league match under the return of their coach Guillermo Vazquez.
The team from ‘coapa’ has been nothing but extraordinary through six weeks at the start of the Apertura 2014. Club America leads the standings in points with 16, product of 5 wins and 1 tie. Moreover, they also lead the league in goals with 13, and are tied for the best defense with 4 goals conceded. In short, the ‘aguilas’ are an exciting team with top talent who seem to have finally understood the tactics and demands that coach Antonio Mohamed has to offer.
Against Pumas, America will have a difficult opponent who is desperate for a win. While America would be hurt by losing to a top rival, they would still end in the week at least tied for first place. Meanwhile, if Pumas were to lose, not only would they suffer a difficult defeat against their most hated opponent, but it would sink them deeper into the bottom of the table. The team coached by Guillermo Vazquez is currently in 16th place with only 4 points.
Club America vs Pumas UNAM Prediction

Club America is undoubtedly the better team in the Liga MX, as they have the best offense and best defense. Playing against their rival will only allow them to exploit all of their strenghts, and that will be too much to bare for Pumas. The America vs Pumas match will end in a 2-0 win for the ‘aguilas’.
