Eimer is aware of Leon’s confidence following their victory over LAFC in the Concacaf Champions League. On June 4, they defeated the defending MLS champions with a 1-0 victory in the return leg after winning the first leg 2-1. Victor Davila won the CCL Golden Ball in 2022–23 with his nine goals. Federico Vinas, a recent arrival, was awarded Best Young Player despite only scoring three goals for America last season in 25 games (three of which he started).
The expert also considered the fact that Chivas went undefeated in the two games from the previous year. They battled to a 0-0 tie at home before taking control of Leon’s Clausura triumph in the second half. Alexis Vega, who has six goals, is out with a sprained knee, while Victor Guzman lead the squad with seven goals. In 2022–23, Miguel Jimenez finished third in Liga MX for saves (111), and in the most recent match, he recorded his 12th clean sheet of the year.
Eimer has examined the Leon vs. Chivas clash from every angle for Monday’s Liga MX game, and he is leaning slightly over on the goal total.
