Club America Vs. Chivas Guadalajara, 2011 Super Clasico: Super Aguilas' Liguilla Hopes On The Line

Armando Navarrete has hardly been Club America's problem this season, but he's struggling to fill the shoes of Guillermo Ochoa.

In what has been a rarity in recent years, the Super Clasico looks like it's going to be a meaningful and exciting one in the 2011 Apertura. Club America are very much in need of a win, while Chivas are coming off of a five goal performance against Estudiantes Tecos. Unlike last night's Clasico Regiomontano, where both teams played content for a draw, one point does America absolutely no good tonight. They absolutely need a victory to get back into the Liguilla race.

Based on their performance last week, they can get it. Jornada 13 saw them defeat Monterrey 3-0 on the road, and they could have won by double that margin. It was an absolutely brilliant performance by the Super Aguilas, and it reignited their hopes of qualifying for Liguilla.

Chivas, however, could be content with a draw. On the road against a solid attacking team, in a Clasico, they'll be very happy with a 0-0. They're in better form and arguably more talented, though, and could nick a goal on a bad America defense, even while playing a very defensive game.

It's the biggest game in Mexico all season, just like it is every season.
