Club América took the lead 2-1 in the first game against Olimpia in the beginning of their CONCACAF Champions League 2021 campaign. Today they'll be back at the Estadio Azteca aiming to seal a quarter-final spot. The Águilas will play this game a few days before facing rivals Cruz Azul in the Liga MX for a new edition of the ´Clásico Joven´. Here, you'll find everything there is to know about this soccer game, such as information, storylines, predictions, odds, and how to watch it in the US.
The Aguilas returned to Mexico with a good advantage ahead of the second game, while they continue having an outstanding winning streak in the Liga MX. Santiago Solari's squad will be looking to finish the job at home before an important clash against Cruz Azul on the weekend.
The Honduran side, meanwhile, faces a hard ordeal visiting a strong team from the region. Pedro Troglio's boys proved to be dominant in the local competition, where they are heading to a back-to-back championship, but showing that same level in the Concachampions seemed to be a huge challenge so far.

Club América vs Olimpia: Storylines
América are in the hunt for the Mexican league's trophy this season, and their campaign is being amazing. They are currently at the second place in the standings, only behind the impressive Cruz Azul who hold twelve wins in a row. This weekend, the Aguilas will clash against them in a highly-anticipated match.
That's why Santiago Solari is likely to rest some of the starters in this Concachampions duel, like he did in the first leg. His side, however, managed to claim a win in Honduras, making a great step towards the next round, and earned an important triumph over Tigres last weekend.
For Olimpia this is a huge opportunity to prove their level against a mighty team in the CONCACAF. The reigning local champions are atop of Group B of the Honduran first division, having lost only once after ten rounds. After beating CD Vida last Saturday, they will visit the iconic Azteca looking for a comeback in this tie, despite it doesn't seem easy at all.
