As far as games go in Week 9, they don’t get any bigger than this one as Club América take on local rivals Pumas UNAM in Mexico City’s Clásico Capitalino.
Las Águilas arrive in desperate need of a win after being embarrassed 3-0 by Atlas. Miguel Herrera’s men are in something of a slump and have gone winless in each of their last three Liga MX matches, making this something of a must-win scenario for Las Águilas.
Meanwhile, Pumas UNAM have had their ups and downs this season, but they closed out Week 8 with a massive last-minute victory over Toluca. Although the Universitarios have notoriously struggled away from the Estadio Olimpico Universitario, they will hope that the short crosstown trip to the Estadio Azteca won’t hinder their chances too much at an upset over their biggest rivals.
