2023 Liga MX Preview: Atletico San Luis vs. Club Leon Prediction, Odds, and Picks (Nov 23)
- Atletico San Luis have been in horrible form lately, with just one win since the start of the autumn.
- Club Leon booked the ticket to the Play-Ins with a win in the final round of the regular season.
It’s time for the 2023 Liga MX Apertura Final Phase. The Mexican postseason starts with two Play-In matches, the first of which is the Serie A duel between Atletico San Luis vs. Club Leon, which we’ll preview now.
This is a double-chance game because the winner gets directly to the Quarter-finals, while the loser gets to play against the winner of the other Play-In match.
The game is played at Estadio Alfonso Lastras in San Luis Potosí, which is the home ground of Atletico San Luis. This team finished in the No. 7 place in the regular season of the 2023 Liga MX Apertura, just above Club Leon. These two finished on equal points, but “Atleti” had a much better score difference.
They will have the home advantage in the Play-In, but this doesn’t make them big favorites in the eyes of the bookies. In fact, in some sportsbooks, neither team is the favorite.

The Atletico San Luis vs. Club Leon odds suggest we’re going to see a real battle on November 22. The hosts will have their fans to support them, but the problem is that their players are in horrible form. They’re without a single win in their last five games, with one draw and four losses.
In fact, they’ve been playing horribly for the past couple of months, winning just two games since summer. Plus, one of those two wins happened against the bottom-placed Nexaca.
Club Leon’s players also cannot be too proud of their recent run, but at least they won their most recent game. In the final round of the Liga MX Apertura, they beat Juarez 2-1, thus booking the ticket to the Play-In Round.
The reason why these guys failed to get to the Final 8 directly is that they did badly in the defense in the final couple of rounds. Offensively, however, they’ve been great over the past couple of weeks – they scored a total of seven goals in their last three games.
Atletico San Luis vs. Club Leon Prediction
In the previous Atletico San Luis vs. Club Leon game, the home team won 3-0, with goals by Jhon Murillo, Leo Bonatini, and Rodrigo Dourado. It was the last time Murillo and Douardo scored, while Bonatini managed to get three more times on the scoresheet since. But even he is without a single goal in the past five games.
Another important thing about that game is that one of Club Leon’s players got a red card while the score was 0-0. After that, everything went downhill for his team. If they can keep their composure this time, Club Leon players will grab a win.
