CD Guadalajara vs Atlas by KhanT
Atlas are in very tricky situation, they are depending on their own faith pretty much. They are 8th and currently holding that last playoff spot but they have Chivas away and Pachuca at home for last round. Two extremely tough games because Chivas will be aggressive as hell against Atlas, it's a Clasico for god's sake, they will aim to win not matter what, as always against their city rivals. Atlas will have some missing as last night in the replay of Jornada 8 Liga MX, they hosted Tigres and drew 1:1. But they played with 10 men (since early in 1st half due to red card) and they failed to create many chances. Atlas defended the whole time pretty much and they were very defensive at home. Now at home of Chivas, how can you expect anything else? They will once again be very defensive because their Liguilla depends about these last two games, Chivas do not care. They hate Atlas and they want them out of Liguilla, they want to hurt them and win the Clasico definitely.
This should be a crazy game, not in terms of quality but in terms of aggression, yellow cards, "roja's", just all around mess. Chivas suck this season, they were just eliminated from Copa MX by the second divison team Atlas on penalty shootout, everything went wrong for Chivas and Almeida after winning the title. If there's anything that can make Chivas happy and their fans happy, it's to win the Clasico of Guadajalara and hurt Atlas chances of making it to playoffs. This is the last chance for Chivas to feel some happiness this Apertura, because everything else about this season should be quickly forgotten for Almeida and Chivas.
Certainly main bets here should be a lot of yellow cards, red card and such options. But this early I can't see any bookie offering that yet, and who knows if they will even offer it besides some locals, so I will just go with under which is the logical choice in this situation. I will go for 1st half under because if things become bad for Atlas later on in the game, they will open up hard and then under 2.5 can be killed when it was a good bet initially, so under 1.0 ht is my choice.
