2021 Liga MX odds, April 17 picks: Proven soccer expert reveals best bets for Club America vs. Cruz Azul

It's a battle between crosstown rivals and the top two teams in Mexican Liga MX when Cruz Azul and Club America square off Saturday in El Clasico Joven at Estadio Azteca.

One of America's losses (and three of its 10 goals "allowed") was a forfeit against Atlas after an ineligible player was on the bench for a 2-0 victory.

Striker Henry Martin, who has a team-high 14 goals across the two seasons, is expected back from injury, but five other players have scored at least five times in the 31 matches.

Sebastian Cordova (seven goals), Roger Martinez (five) and Richard Sanchez (five) are a big part of an organized attack that should be able to close out a victory if it can get on the scoreboard.

An 8-0 victory against Haitian side Arcahaie on Thursday in the CONCACAF Champions League has Azul's confidence soaring.

Jonathan Rodriguez is the league's top scorer with 19 goals in the 31 matches overall, and Luis Roma has a league-best 10 assists, while goalkeeper Jose Corona has kept a league-high 14 clean sheets.
