As you can see from the odds in our Necaxa vs Atlas prediction, the chances are quite even for both teams to win. Necaxa are the expected winners, with a 37.2% win probability at +165, but Atlas’ odds at +177 imply a 36.8% win probability, which we believe will be sufficient for the visitors at Estadio Victoria Aguascalientes to pick up vital three points. Over 2.5 goals is also a bet you could make, as our key betting tip has a massive 54.55% likelihood at -120.

Necaxa vs Atlas Lineups & Team News

Necaxa

Sadly, Necaxa were at the bottom of the table in the Apertura race last season, and we don’t think much will change during this campaign. We are sure that Atlas will thrash coach Fentanes’ boys at Estadio Victoria Aguascalientes. Not only were Necaxa at the bottom of the table last season, but they also had one of the weakest backlines, which is surely another plus in favor of our Necaxa vs Atlas predictions.

Predicted lineup – Unsain (GK), Rodriguez, Castro, Pena, Martinez, Garnica, Gomez, Juarez, Gonzalez, Mendez & Monreal

Atlas

The last match between the two was played on the 11th of November and it ended 0-0. Surely, this one can’t be more boring than the one at Estadio Jalisco, right? After all, Atlas were among the best teams in Mexico up until a couple of seasons ago.

Predicted lineup – Vargas (GK), Abella, Nervo, Santamaria, Lozano, Zapata, Bass, Zumaque, Caicedo, Garcia & Aguirre

Player to Watch: Juan Zapata

We have Juan Zapata down as the player to watch in our Necaxa vs Atlas prediction as he was among the best players for his manager in the last campaign. The central midfielder bagged four goals for Atlas, whilst also supplying a teammate with an assist. The only other player to outscore him was Jordy Caicedo who scored on five occasions. However, we believe Juan Zapata will be the one to watch at Estadio Victoria Aguascalientes as he’s the heart and soul of Atlas’ midfield.
