Club América started its Torneo Guardianes with a win over Pachuca on the road at Estadio Hidalgo. América had a quiet summer, as many clubs did in the mid-pandemic transfer market, with just one permanent signing and one loan signing. Federico Viñas made his loan from Juventus permanent as the Uruguayan striker signed a four-year deal, and Paraguayan left-winger Sergio Díaz is also an Aguila now. Viñas had limited appearances last season while scoring 5 goals in 10 appearances, but he started last weekend and scored the opener in the win against Pachuca.
Tijuana triumphed 3-1 over a 10-man Atlas in the opening week. The club looks a little different from last time out, having sold center back Leandro González Pírez to MLS newcomers Inter Miami this summer, just six months after buying the Argentine from MLS powerhouse Atlanta United.
Here’s how América’s Starting XI looked in the last match (2-1 win at Pachuca):
- Ochoa; Reyes, Aguilera, Valdez, Sánchez; Ibarguën, Cáseres, Sánchez, Martínez; Viñas, Córdova
According to the oddsmakers at Bovada, América is favored to win on Saturday:
- América, -145 (bet $145 to win $100)
- Tijuana, +330 (bet $100 to win $330)
- Draw, +275
- at Necaxa, Friday, August 7, 8:30pm ET

Stream Club América live: The best streaming services for Mexican futbol
When it comes to Club America and the rest of Liga MX, you need a guide to how to navigate all the streaming services carrying Mexican futbol. Here’s that guide:
Hulu Live TV
Hulu Live TV is a great way to stream live TV, as it comes with access to Hulu’s massive library of on-demand content. You’ll be able to choose from movies, shows, and Hulu’s original programming, and keep up with what’s new each month. Hulu plans even include a bundle option where you can access Disney+ and ESPN+ along with Hulu.
Hulu Live TV sets you up with local channels and has a broad spectrum of entertainment and sports channels to review, including the full suite of ESPN channels, Cartoon Network, FX, HGTV, and even deep cuts like National Geographic and Syfy.
Hulu Live TV will deliver you FS1 for English-language matches and Telemundo for Guadalajara home matches.
|Hulu Live TV||$54.99|

If you’re looking for a streamlined, cost-effective streaming package, check out Sling TV. It offers two basic cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, each of which costs $30 per month. There’s also the third option of getting Sling Orange + Blue for just $45 per month. You’ll get more Sling TV channels by choosing Sling Blue, with its 40 channels including sports favorites like NBCSN and cable mainstays like Food Network and Discovery Channel. But Sling Orange brings must-haves Disney Channel and ESPN as part of its package.
To get FS1, Sling Blue is your pick, while Sling Orange + Best of Spanish gets you ESPN Deportes.
|Orange + Blue||$45|
FuboTV started as a streaming service geared toward sports fans, but it’s evolved into a broadly-appealing option with entertainment and news options alongside its robust sports choices. Depending on the package, you can access as many as 181 FuboTV channels. If you’re looking to be entertained, Bravo, IFC, MTV, and VH1 are options even at Fubo’s most basic tier. The Fubo channel list still includes plenty of sports, including the Fubo Sports Network, which has original programming mixing sports and humor. The FuboTV cost starts at $54.99 a month, and with Disney Media favorites like ABC, ESPN, and the Disney Channel coming on board in 2020, some who were on the fence about Fubo are giving it another look.
Fubo is a soccer lover’s playland, and you’ll get a lot of Liga MX there. The Standard tier gets you FS1 and TUDN, plus Telemundo in some local markets, with Fox Deportes available with a sports add-on. Expect ESPN Deportes to come online when the Disney Media channels join Fubo later this summer.
The YouTube TV channel list includes local channels, sports options including ESPN, ESPN2, FS1, FS2, and NBA TV, and plenty to keep kids (and kids at heart) occupied, including Disney Channel and its companion channels, Nickelodeon, and Cartoon Network—all in one easy-to-access package. It even comes with a few Spanish-language channels like Telemundo and NBC Universo. YouTube add-ons include HBO Max, Showtime, and Starz. YouTube TV packages have some advantages over their competitors, including a generous DVR and multiple screens package. From one account, each user can create an individual profile to track favorite shows.
If you’re looking for FS1 or Telemundo, know that you can stream it on YouTube TV. (If there’s not a Telemundo in your market, YouTube TV will sub in the closest one—for instance, Austin viewers get Houston’s Telemundo stream.)
AT&T TV Now
If you’re already looking to AT&T for your wireless needs, you might consider AT&T TV Now to cover streaming for you. AT&T TV Now channels start with Plus and Max, which even include HBO. Then, AT&T plans expand from there, approaching cable selection and pricing with AT&T TV Now’s biggest packages. AT&T streaming also comes with Cloud DVR, letting you record up to 20 hours of TV per month.
FS1 and Telemundo are available at the baseline Plus tier, with ESPN Deportes and Fox Deportes available for Optimo Mas customers, TUDN available for Optimo Mas or Ultimate subscribers, and Univision available at anything above the Max level (starting with Optimo Mas and Entertainment).
Vidgo offers a package for under $40 a month that pulls together more than 60 English-language channels into its National English Package. Vidgo channels include ABC, Fox, the ESPN family of channels (including ESPN Deportes), and it’s one of the few streaming services that carries BeIN Sports. But it’s like Fubo in that, even though it started out for streaming sports, it carries a lot more now. Vidgo’s Social TV platform also adds to the fun.
Core and Plus English subscribers get Fox Deportes and ESPN Deportes as well as FS1, whereas both Latino packages bring Fox Deportes and ESPN Deportes.
