With only two games remaining in the regular season, Club America travel to the state of Jalisco to take on Atlas.
Say what you want about America’s “failed” Centenario, but Las Aguilas are within touching distance of clinching a place in the Liguilla. Ricardo Antonio La Volpe’s side is just a win away from joining the “Fiesta Grande” and even with a defeat, Las Aguilas might find themselves qualified by the end of the weekend.
Atlas, on the other hand, aren’t doing as hot. The Rojinegros are 13th in the table and need something short of a miracle to make it to the Liguilla. They come into this game after losing two straight and received the unfortunate news during the midweek that they will be without Candido Ramirez for the rest of the season.
For Las Aguilas, it is never too early to start thinking about homefield advantage, and the objective now is to finish among the top four.
