The Clasico Tapatio between Chivas and Atlas will be played this Sunday, April 17, 2016 (3:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Chivas. Although Atlas are at the bottom of the Liga MX standings with nothing to play for, the Rojinegros should be expected to put up a tough fight against arch-rivals Chivas.
Chivas, unlike their derby rivals, have plenty to play for, as they are fighting for the last spots in the Liguilla, and will need a win to ensure their season does not end at the conclusion of Week 17 of the Liga MX.
Chivas has done an excellent job in the past three games, winning all three, scoring 10 goals, and only allowing 1. Furthermore, they defeated Pumas, Puebla and Monterrey, two of these teams are playing extremely well, and Chivas’ victories over them should be applauded.
On the other side of Guadalajara, Atlas have failed spectacularly, having won only twice all season long, tied three, and lost eight, earning just nine points in the season. They are, deservedly, in last place of the Liga MX, and the only thing they have to play for is as spoiler, by ruining other teams’ chances of making it to the Liguilla.
Given that Chivas have been on a rampage since losing the Super Clasico, and Atlas are awesomely awful this season, we should expect a victory for Chivas in the Clasico Tapatio. Nonetheless, it won’t be easy, as Atlas will not go down without a fight in the Guadalajara derby.
