The defending Mexican soccer champions, Atlas, who won both the Apertura and Clausura last year, are back on the field.

On the other hand, América, the top seed in the Apertura of the previous year, lost in the quarterfinals. The team from Mexico City performed marginally better in the Clausura, reaching the semifinals before losing to Pachuca. The game on Saturday night will be shown on TUDN and Univision in Spanish.

To win, America will begin a new championship. Las Aguilas fell to Pachuca in the 2022 Torneo Clausura Liga MX semifinals by a score of 3-0. Due to the team’s multiple absences and the new acquisitions’ inexperience, Fernando Ortiz will have to improvise his starting lineup for the debut versus Atlas.
Atlas, on the other hand, will have a bittersweet taste at the beginning of the tournament. After losing the Super Copa MX Final against Cruz Azul 3-4 on penalties following a 2-2 draw in the 90th minute, Diego Cocca’s squad will resume play.
