Following defeat to Real Madrid, Club America close out their Club World Cup campaign when they take on Atletico Nacional in the third-place match.
On Thursday, las Aguilas put in a noble performance against the European champions, but it just wasn’t meant to be as goals from Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo extinguished the hopes of the azulcremas.
Now, Ricardo La Volpe’s men have a chance at a small consolation prize when they take on Atletico Nacional for the tournament’s third place.
The South Americans arrive on the back of a disappointing defeat against Kashima Antlers, which was only their second loss in international tournaments all year.
Of course, Club America have their eyes set on the Liga MX final against Tigres. In that regard, it wouldn’t be a surprise if La Volpe decides to rotate.
Match date/time: Sunday 2:00am EST, 4:00pm local
Venue: International Stadium Yokohama, Yokohama, Japan
TV: Fox Sports 1 (US) , Fox Deportes (US - Spanish), Fox Sports Mexico (Mexico), Canal 5 Televisa (Mexico),
