Liga MX - Where and how to watch América vs Cruz Azul

April 30, 2022 By Oscar Rojas
A winner-takes-all showdown between two of the most popular teams in Mexico takes place this evening. Follow it with our detailed guide.

Matchweek 17 in Liga MX has brought us to the point where América and Cruz Azul will lock horns with a direct spot in the playoffs being available for the winner of this clash. América's recent surge and Cruz Azul's recent struggles prompt us to think that we could have an interesting match in our hands, especially with the well known rivalry between these clubs.

América enter this match enjoying one of the hottest streaks in Mexican football. Las Águilas are unbeaten in their last seven games, six of those ending in wins. While critics believed that their streak was fueled because most of their rivals were ranked in the lower spots of the table, their recent two-nil victory over Tigres confirmed Fernando Ortiz's men as a force to be reckoned with. Now, a win will guarantee the yellow and blue team a spot in the playoffs without having to go through the play-in phase set to take place next week.

Las Águilas' streak has been fueled by Diego Valdés and Alejandro Zendejas, who have led the team with four goals each during this victorious streak. Added to that, América has shown impressive defensive skills, conceding only once in their last seven meetings. With those facts in mind, we can expect the team's defense and these two players as the main causes to believe in the team's success this evening.

On the other side of the pitch, Cruz Azul will enter this game having won three of their last seven matches, all of them away from home, which will be the case this time due to Liga MX's regulations. La Máquina's last win this season came in an away match at Querétaro a couple of weeks back (1-0), right in the middle of two one-nil losses at the Azteca against Chivas and San Luis, while also adding a one-all draw versus Mazatlán FC.

The team's problems on and off the pitch have caused coach Juan Reynoso to face the heat from fans and media experts. Right now, the Peruvian coach has even had to face questions about his potential sacking if the team cannot make it to the playoffs this week. Added to that, the problems Reynoso has had with some of the players have created an aura of controversy within the club.

If La Máquina want to make it out of this match in good form, the club will have to rely on Santiago Giménez as their reference up front. "El Chaquito" has been one of the best strikers for the team this season, and with the help of defender Juan Escobar and winger Uriel Antuna, the blue and white side could still give América's defenders some problems in Saturday evening's clash.

Let's have a look at some of the key aspects of this game before its kickoff.
