This Sunday, August 6, 2017 (10:00 AM Pacific) Toluca will host Atlas at the Estadio Nemesio Diez for a matchup in the third round of the Liga MX Apertura 2017. Both teams are expected to fight for a playoff spot this season and should deliver an entertaining encounter.
Toluca had a bit of a disappointing scoreless draw against Chivas to start off the Apertura 2017 but followed that up with an impressive 3-1 win against Leon in week 2. The recent addition of Alexis Canelo is an exciting one that can strengthen the team and it will be interesting to see if the Argentine features in the game.
Los Diablos have proven to be a force at home in the past and that the home-field advantage could be one of the deciding factors in this game. Toluca has a very tough opponent but should be able to get some points from this game.
Atlas has been one of the most impressive teams in the Apertura 2017, currently undefeated with six points. Los Zorros have achieved impressive victories against Leon (3-0) and Pumas UNAM (2-1) and will now look for their third consecutive victory.
Matias Alustiza is off to another solid start as he has two goals and seems to be on his way to being one of the top scorers in the league once again. This game has the potential to be one of the best games in the Liga MX this weekend and should be filled with a few goals.
