Liga MX - How to watch the Apertura 2018 final between Cruz Azul and América

December 15, 2018 By Oscar Rojas
After the goalless draw in the first leg, both teams will have to show better form in front of goal to claim the title.

What has been Cruz Azul and América's form ahead of this game?

Cruz Azul gave their fans one of their best regular seasons of all time, all of this by being the best host and one of the most consistent teams when playing away from home. Speaking about home games, "La Máquina" won nine games and drew two more. Only América (0-0) and Querétaro (a one-all draw during the playoffs) were the only teams to escape from Azteca Stadium unscathed when visiting Cruz Azul.

América gets to this match on a 16-game streak without  a loss (eight wins, eight draws). Speaking about away games, América has a positive record of four wins, five draws and two losses, including their playoff games. Curiously, their last loss in the tournament took place during an away game: a 2-0 loss against León back in August.

What do Cruz Azul and América need to win the title?

Considering Thursday's draw, things are pretty straight-forward: whoever wins the game will claim the title. There is no away goals rule or any edge provided by their position in the Liga MX tournament, which means that the winner will take it all. In case there's another draw, extra time and a penalty shootout will be used to determine the winner.

Cruz Azul vs América - Head-to-head

  • This will be the fourth final match between these teams. Cruz Azul won the first one, back in 1972, but América bounced back to beat "La Máquina" in the 1988-89 season and in the Clausura 2013 tournament.

  • América goes out looking for their 100th playoff win. They'd become the first Mexican team to do so.

  • Cruz Azul seeks to end a 21-year drought without a league title. They won their last Liga MX title during the Invierno 1997 tournament.

  • This will be the 13th playoff meeting between these teams. América holds a massive edge over Cruz Azul, having won nine of the 12 previous meetings.

  • Miguel Herrera was América's coach during the Clausura 2013 final. That win is the only club title he's earned in his career.

  • Cruz Azul gets to this game as Copa MX champions. They are eager to become the second team to win both the league and cup titles during the same semester, something that has only been accomplished by Chivas since the cup competition was brought back to life.

  • América has a 12-game streak without a loss against Cruz Azul (seven wins, five draws). 

  • The last game between these teams ended in a goalless draw. In fact, four out of their last five draws have ended with that same scoreline.
