Club America were beaten on their last visit to Mazatlan

Mazatlan host Club America at the Estadio de Mazatlan in the Liga MX this Friday.

Since their debut in the Mexican top-flight last summer, the Cañoneros have struggled to make an impression.

They finished in 14th position in this season's Apertura. Despite some improvements in the second part of their campaign, they have been plagued by inconsistency.

Against all the odds, the minnows pulled off a stunning 2-1 win away to Tigres UANL in their last match. Tomas Boy's men will aim to strike gold again.

Las Águilas have breathed new life into their campaign under experienced manager Santiago Solari, who took over the reigns from Miguel Herrera last December.

He was served a baptism of fire in his debut game, losing 1-0 to Monterrey, but has since changed the fortunes of the club.

They're currently just two points behind Cruz Azul in the Clausura standings and have won each of their last four games.

Mazatlan vs Club America Predictions

After pulling off a huge upset with the defeat of Tigres in their last game, Mazatlan will be hoping to pick up another scalp.

However, their incosistency makes it hard to predict a win against a side as decorated as America.

It might be close, but we expect the visitors to claim all three points here.

Prediction: Mazatlan 0-2 Club America
