Liga MX Semi-finals - How to watch América vs León on May 16, 2019

May 16, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
The best team of the regular season locks horns with the defending champions. Get a hold of this exciting playoff match in the Mexican top flight.

What is América and León's form ahead of this game?

América se presenta a este juego tras ganar tres de sus cuatro más recientes juegos, aunque el último partido de las Águilas finalizó en derrota ante Cruz Azul. Los azulcremas han mejorado un poco en defensa, pues solo han admitido dos goles en esos cuatro juegos, ambos a manos de Cruz Azul y uno de ellos por la vía del penal.

León llega con racha de tres juegos ganados, y si no fuera por la derrota ante Chivas de la Jornada 16, los felinos habrían encadenado más de diez juegos con victoria. Lo que debe preoocupar al técnico Ignacio Ambriz, de carácter netamente defensivo, es que su línea baja no ha podido mantener su puerta a cero en sus cinco juegos más recientes, situación que deberán mejorar de cara a la semifinal.

How did América and León get to the Liga MX semi-finals?

América se metió a la fase de semifinales tras vencer en el global al Cruz Azul. Los azulcremas se complicaron de más la existencia con su derrota de uno a cero del pasado domingo, que sumada a la victoria de 3-1 del jueves anterior dio un global favorable a los de Coapa.

León, por su parte, eliminó a Xolos ganando sus dos partidos, aunque en el segundo se dedicaron a tocar el balón durante la parte complementaria, situación que les pudo generar problemas con el equipo fronterizo. León fue el único semifinalista que logró ganar sus dos encuentros, y sobra decir que fue el que más goles anotó en la fase anterior, con cinco.

América vs León controversy - Pollution forced Liga MX execs to re-schedule the game

The game had to be postponed due to an environmental emergency that took place in Mexico City, where local authorities were too slow to determine the necessary measures to look after the players' and fans' health. This slow reaction was followed by Liga MX's lack of alternatives to have the game played in Mexico City, which forced the league to stage the game in the nearby city of Querétaro.

In the meantime, León was already traveling to Mexico City, when they found out that they would need to make new arrangements elsewhere. Footage of León's players waiting at a gas station for their fate to be solved made Liga MX look like a bad joke.

"Our team is waiting to find out where the semi-final will be played. After landing in Toluca, we're just waiting for the league's decision."
