On the tenth round of the Liga MX Guard1anes Tournament 2021, Club América will be hosting the defending champions Club León at the Estadio Azteca. The visitors have been struggling lately and now will face one of the title contenders of this season. Santiago Solari's team is going through a fantastic moment chasing the leadership of the tournament.
Before this clash, Mexican teams also played a midweek round in which there were many changes in the standings. América came up strong once again to keep on being one of the best teams in the league, while León couldn't recover and still find themselves at a low position.
However, this match could be either a turning point for the team coached by Ignacio Ambriz, or one more disappointment. On the other hand, América will look to get the three points once again. Find out the preview, predictions, storylines, odds, and how to watch this game in the US.

Club América vs Club León: Storylines
The hosts are one of the strongest sides in the Liga MX so far, as they keep on winning game after game, with a powerful squad. América don't have other goal for every season than to fight for the championship, which is what they're working for now too.
The Aguilas hold an impressive record at home, having lost just one of their last five games - and that loss was because they didn't register Federico Viñas before facing Atlas, so despite winning 2-0 on the pitch the triumph was given to the visitors. However, they are doing a great campaign so far and they look as one potential team to clinch the title.
On the other hand, León's season is nothing like the previous one. Not only they aren't performing as good as they did when they were crowned champions, but the Esmeraldas are doing very poorly at the Guard1anes Tournament. Still, they were undefeated in the last two games against the Aguilas, and they also got the victory in the last two games at the Estadio Azteca.
