With the Liguilla only a week away, Pachuca and Club America will look to finish the regular season with a win when the Estadio Hidalgo plays hosts to second and fifth on Saturday.
Xolos de Tijuana’s defeat to Veracruz on Friday has paved the way for the Tuzos to finish first if they manage to beat Las Aguilas. Club America, on the other hand, need to win if they aspire to have any chance of having home-field advantage in the first round. A draw could even mean both teams face each other again in the quarterfinals.
Pachuca have looked near unstoppable at the Estadio Hidalgo, unbeaten at home and having the best scoring record in the league.
Las Aguilas, though, have not lost a single game under new manager Ricardo Antonio La Volpe, and they will feel confident they can take down the champions in their own backyard.
