Club América vs Necaxa: Storylines and Head-to-Head
Club América head into the Apertura 2021 seeking redemption after a disappointing ending to their Guard1anes Tournament run. Santiago Solari's team came up short in its last quest for the Mexican league title, which is why it wants to make things better this time. But first, the Aguilas need to clinch their first win in the regular season.
Necaxa, meanwhile, arrived at this competition with plenty to improve after a dreadful last-place finish in the Guard1anes 2021. Things haven't begun well for them in the Apertura either, conceding three in their debut.
This will be the 34th league game between these two familiar foes. Club America have the edge with 33 victories, while Necaxa have won 11 times, and they shared the points on seven occasions. The last time they met, América won 2-1.
