Cougars vs. America: match history

The Pumas vs. America have been regulars in Mexico and the statistics have been even in the 10 most recent direct games: three wins for each side. However, it is necessary to mention that two of the triumphs by the ‘Universitarios’ were in friendlies.

In addition to the small sporting crisis, they will have the sensitive loss of Pedro Aquino, who was injured playing with the Peruvian team. Despite the gloomy moment, the Spanish Álvaro Fidalgo appears as the light of hope to guide the ‘Águilas’ to glory. The backing of the experienced Henry Martín and Miguel Layún will be vital.

For its part, the Club América led by Santiago Solari became a regular again in this course and took first place comfortably. However, the closing of the campaign generated many doubts among the fans, taking into account that they lost 2-1 against the ‘Machine’ and then only matched 0-0 with Monterrey.

Without major surprises, the main card they have is Dinenno, with five goals and four assists. Recall that the only match in which the ‘Auriazules’ did not know how to inflate the networks recently was in the defeat at home against Santos Laguna (3-0), but they recovered on the following day, defeating Cruz Azul 4-3.

Despite being the worst classified that is still in the race in search of the title, Pumas will be a rival of great danger. The main task of those led by Andrés Lillini will be to stay firm in the offensive work, as in recent weeks: they scored in seven of the eight most recent presentations.

With 21 units they entered the playoffs where they threw out Toluca by beating it 2-1, although they could have beaten it with a scandal scoreboard. “We can not be favorites because we entered at the last minute, but we are to be tough opponents,” said Lillini ahead of Wednesday’s game at home at the Olympic University Stadium.

In contrast, the Pumas wandered at the bottom of the table for most of the tournament, even on the fifth date they were sotaneros. After losing to América on date 12 by 2-0, the felines trained by Argentine Andrés Lillini got 13 of the last 15 points they played in the regular phase.
