Cruz Azul vs Club America Predictions & Derby Tips

The Mexico City derby between Cruz Azul vs Club America is going to be the main event in Clausura this week. Matchday 15 draws near and you’d better prepare yourself with our Cruz Azul vs Club America betting tips.

Henry Martin to Score Anytime

If we had to pinpoint one player in Mexico who deserves the best player of the Season award the most, it’ll probably have to be Club America’s key striker. Henry Martin, 30, worked hard and scored 25 goals in both Apertura and Clausura to be at the top of the goalscoring charts.

However, Club America’s team captain is no one-trick pony. The only player who has more assists than Martin this season is Toluca’s Leonardo Fernandez with 11 assists. However, Henry Martin’s 10 assists are also a considerable figure that we took under consideration for our key Cruz Azul vs Club America betting tip.

Club America/Club America

Our first Cruz Azul vs Club America prediction isn’t going to be appreciated by the Blue Machine’s fanbase. La Maquina Celeste’s five-game unbeaten run must come to an end sooner or later and what better opportunity to try and beat the odds than a match over fierce rivals Club America?

The Mexico City derby will be played at Estadio Azteca, of course. Both teams are quite familiar with this venue and both of them will be able to show their best game. However, the Eagles’ best is simply too much for Cruz Azul to handle.

Coach Fernando Ortiz’s boys obliterated Cruz Azul 7-0 on the 21st of August, 2022, after a seven-game winless streak.

Cruz Azul odds: +230 – 29.0%

Draw odds: +250 – 27.0%

Club America odds: +118 – 44.0%

The Eagles’ solid form wasn’t enough for the bookies to give them a 50.0% or higher chance of success on Sunday. Club America’s odds stand at +118 and that means that with a solid 44.0% win probability, Henry Martin and his colleagues are the expected winners. We also believe he’ll find the net on Sunday. The odds for such an outcome stand at +166 (37.6%).

Cruz Azul vs Club America Lineups & Team News

Cruz Azul

With six victories, three draws, and five losses in 14 Clausura games, Cruz Azul are currently in the 8th spot. Not exactly the most glamorous performance but it seems to get the job done. If everything goes according to plan, Cruz Azul will be among the teams who’ll partake in the playoffs in a couple of weeks.

Predicted lineup – Corona (GK), Rivero, Funes, Guerrero, Huescas, Lira, Dominguez, Antuna, Rodriguez, Rotondi & Estrada

Club America

As we stated in our previous Cruz Azul vs Club America prediction, the Eagles soared to success in their previous match against coach Ricardo Ferretti’s boys for a 7-0 win at Estadio Azteca. And seeing as the Eagles managed to steal points away from Clausura frontrunners Monterrey on the 9th of April, we surely expect them to do well against their local rival as well.

Predicted lineup – Malagon (GK), Layun, Reyes, Caceres, Fuentes, Zendejas, Fidalgo, Sanchez, Rodriguez, Valdes & Martin

Player to Watch: Diego Valdes

Perhaps a bit unappreciated, Diego Valdes is quietly doing his job without getting the same amount of praise Henry Martin is enjoying. With six assists and four goals this season, Valdes is a key reason behind Club America’s success. As you saw in our Cruz Azul vs Club America prediction above, we expect Diego Valdes to be in the starting XI for the Eagles and we fully expect him to be the key player on the pitch.
