Necaxa vs Atlas Preview and Team News

Necaxa

Mexican Guillermo Vasquez has been the helm of Necaxa since March 2021, and this is his second spell in charge of Los Rayos. The side come into this game with a clean bill of health; starting goalkeeper Luis Malagon may miss out with a minor sprain but is expected to start. Star forward and top scorer Ian Gonzalez Nieto has scored 4 out of his 6 league goals at home, and will aim to propel his side to victory.

Atlas

Argentine Diego Cocca has been head coach of this side since August 2020. Cocca has over 10 years of experience managing South American sides. Atlas have no injuries or suspension worries as the game approaches. Colombian ‘keeper Camilo Vargas has helped Atlas shape one of the best defences in the league, and he will want that trend to continue in this game. Top scorer Victor Malcorra will look to this game to regain his goalscoring form, as he has not scored in over 10 league games. Atlas will need Malcorra firing to ensure they live up to being favorites in the tie.
