Atlas vs Pumas UNAM: predictions & major betting lines

Atlas shouldn’t have too many issues in this game – Pumas UNAM is the second-worst team in Liga MX this season with only one victory achieved

Atlas will defeat Pumas UNAM

The two teams are very close in terms of quality. The head-to-heads say it all – four victories for Pumas UNAM, two victories for Atlas, and four draws. The most common result is the 0:0 draw but we think that Atlas will be able to defeat Pumas UNAM this time. Pumas UNAM has only one victory in 11 games and is rightfully sharing the bottom of the table with Queretaro. Atlas’ last three home games ended with a victory, a draw, and a loss.

Under 2.5 goals

It’s no secret that both teams are experiencing difficulties in the attack. Pumas UNAM scored only five goals in the last six games while Atlas scored six. The games at Jalisco Stadium are always difficult ones for the visiting teams. Pumas UNAM scored only once in the last two games at Jalisco Stadium. The two teams have five consecutive games against each other that resulted in under 2.5 goals. In these five games, we saw only two goals.

Difficult victory for Atlas

Despite the bad season, Atlas are still the current Liga MX champion and that is a psychological factor that will play a role in the Pumas UNAM game. Pumas UNAM are proving to be a team that plays poorly against teams with a bigger stature. Just remember what happened in the Joan Gamper trophy game against Barcelona. Pumas UNAM were humiliated with a 6:0 defeat and the team didn’t even have a shot on target. We believe Atlas will win this game but it wouldn’t be an easy one at all. A 1:0 or 2:0 victory for Atlas shouldn’t raise any eyebrows.
