Liga MX - TV and online options to watch Pumas UNAM vs América

The clash between Pumas UNAM and América can be labeled as a high-risk game due to the rivalry between both sides, and this time there will be more than three points at stake when these teams collide at Estadio Olímpico in an unusual kickoff time for the hosts.

The game, which will be played during the late hours of the day, will see Pumas trying to keep their unbeaten streak in the competition, although they will want to win this match to record their second victory of the campaign. Moreover, the club will want to recover from an embarrassing loss to Barcelona last week, where Spanish journalists even questioned if they played in the top-tier football category in Mexico.

On the other side of the pitch, América make it to this clash well rested after a hectic month of July, where they played nearly eight games in 24 days. The benefit of that rest came last week, when they were able to beat Juárez with an impressive performance by two Mexican national team players: goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa and Henry Martín, who scored a brace last weekend. Now, the time has come for Fernando Ortiz's team to prove they are ready to start winning games and leave the lower half of the standings in Liga MX's Apertura 2022 tournament.

Pumas UNAM vs América - Team news

Pumas will enter this match still rattled by their infamous trip to Barcelona, where they were pummeled by Los Culés in the Joan Gamper Trophy with a 6-0 score. Prior to that, Los Universitarios had only won once in their six games of the competition, with their last three concluding in draws. Yes, Pumas may not have lost, but their performances have been far from satisfying for their supporters. As of now, Pumas are ranked tenth with only eight points.

América's record is not that different, as Fernando Ortiz's men sit in 15th place after winning two of their six games this season, the last one of those coming last week against Juárez (2-1). Before Sunday's match, Ortiz's men had lost two in a row against Tijuana (2-0) and León (3-2), with the latter being a particularly heart-breaking loss for their fans, since the final goal came in the dying seconds of the game while América was playing against ten men.

Pumas UNAM - No significant absences.

América - Injured: Roger Martínez. Doubtful: Emilio Lara.
