Atlas vs Pachuca in Liga MX 2022 Grand Final, First Leg: Head to Head Record

Throughout the 28 meetings that these teams have held in Liga MX, Pachuca has won 15 times while Atlas has only won on 9 occasions, and in those duels, there have only been 2 draws. 

And if we look at the number of the duels that both teams have played at the Jalisco Stadium, the advantage continues to fall on the side of the Tuzos, since of the 15 matches in all competitions that both clubs have played at the home of Atlas, Pachuca's advantage increases.

This is because while Atlas has only been able to beat Pachuca at home on 3 occasions, the Tuzos have beaten them on 11 occasions and there has only been 1 draw between the two teams. 

Therefore, in historical records at least the Zorros have the advantage.

The Zorros have an open wound and the culprits are the Tuzos, since, in the 1999 Invierno tournament, both teams met in the semifinals of Mexican soccer, in a match that was ultimately won by Pachuca. 

The first leg ended with a 2-0 score in the match played at the Hidalgo Stadium, in favor of Pachuca, which at that time was coached by Javier Aguirre, while in the second leg, the Zorros, coached by Ricardo Antonio La Volpe, won 1-0, but lost 2-1 on aggregate. 

Therefore, Atlas will seek to avenge this defeat.

The Tuzos are going like a real train, just like the Zorros, to the final of the tournament, and after humiliating Club America with a 4-1 aggregate score, they are ready to try to repeat the dose of 1999 against Atlas.

To do so, Guillermo Almada will be looking for his goal scorer, Nicolás Ibáñez, to beat Atlas' Julio Furch.
