Atlético San Luis vs Club León – Liga MX leader León will aim to maintain extend its winning streak to four games when it visits Estadio Alfonso Lastras on Friday evening. Ignacio Amríz’s men have won four out of five games so far in Torneo Clausura. They picked up a strong 3-1 victory over Apertura champion Monterrey last weekend, and that should give them confidence ahead of this clash.
Savaged by Pumas
Atlético San Luis was unbeaten in its first four games. It beat Cruz Azul and battled to draws against Tigres, Necaxa and Guadalajara. However, it suffered a humiliating 4-0 defeat at the hands of Pumas UNAM last weekend. That could dent the team’s confidence as it prepares to welcome high-flying León on Friday. Atlético San Luis is a newly promoted side. It finished 15th in the Torneo Apertura table, with 10 defeats in 18 games. It has improved in 2020, but it is no match for León in terms of quality.
León Dominates Head-to-Head
These teams have only ever met three times. León beat Atlético San Luis home and way in the 2012-13 season, and it won 3-2 when they played in October. León found itself 2-1 down at half-time, but it improved after the break and Ángel Mena and Jean Meneses handed it a fine victory. Mena and Meneses are in excellent form this season, along with Luis Montes and Ismael Sosa. León has already scored 13 goals in five Torneo Clausura games, and conceded six. That makes it arguably the most entertaining team in the league.
