América vs Cruz Azul -  Team news

América make it to this stage of the Mexican Liguilla with no losses after five games, although they have only won one of their five fixtures. Los Azulcremas won that match at home against Guadalajara last week, which gave them the needed morale boost for this tie. If the defending Liga MX champions want to claim one more trophy for their cause, then they will need Henry Martín and Julián Quiñones to show their best form. Martín has only scored once during the playoffs, and while Quiñones has scored twice, he missed some clear chances in the first leg that could have given his team a comfortable lead in this return tie.

On the other hand, Cruz Azul reach this tie with two wins, two draws, and one loss in this playoff stage. In fact, this was the first series in which they were unable to win the first leg. Speaking of road matches, La Máquina have won both of their fixtures in this liguilla. Martín Anselmi's men have thrived in front of goal by scoring seven times in five games, while their defense has also chipped in with two clean sheets during their road wins. Uriel Antuna and Lorenzo Faravelli will be key for their title hopes, as they have scored three out of Cruz Azul's seven goals in this stage.

Unfortunately, there will be some key players that might be sidelined for this match. Here is the list of unavailable footballers for this crucial Liga MX match.

América: Kevin Álvarez, Illian Hernández (injured).

Cruz Azul: Gabriel Fernández (injured).

América vs Cruz Azul - What they need to win the title

Following the first leg, where everything ended in a draw, both teams need a clean win to claim the title. At this stage of the competition, América does not have the tiebreaker advantage that ending in the first place of the tournament gave them in previous Liguilla ties. In case the game ends in a draw, extra time and penalties will be used to determine the winner.

América vs Cruz Azul: Head-to-head

  • The regular season game between these clubs ended one-nil for América back in February.

  • Cruz Azul have not beaten América since October 2021. That game ended 2-1 for La Máquina.

  • América reach this clash on a six-game run without a loss against Cruz Azul, with four wins and two draws.

  • This will be fifth title-deciding clash between Cruz Azul and América. Cruz Azul won the first in 1972, but América won in 1989, in 2013, and in 2018.

  • América have never lost a return leg of a series against Cruz Azul when playing as hosts. Two of those three times have come in Liga MX finals: 1989 and 2013.

  • Coach André Jardiné will be looking for the third title in his career. So far, the Brazilian has won one league crown with América, and he also managed Brazil's Olympic team in 2021, where they won the Gold Medal.

  • Coach Martín Anselmi will try to win his fifth title. All his previous crowns came with Independiente del Valle, the team from Ecuador he led to win the Copa Ecuador, the Supercopa Ecuador, the Copa Sudamericana, and the Recopa Sudamericana.
