The America vs Morelia quarterfinal series was expected to be the tightest contest, well, Benitez put an end to that idea. Chucho Benitez had a great game, scoring two goals for America, and pretty much guaranteeing his team a spot in the semifinals of the Liga MX playoffs. Morelia’s fans were left disappointed at the Estadio Morelos.
The game itself was quite exciting, with several scoring opportunities on both sides of the pitch. However, Benitez turned out to be the difference maker, as he scored when given the opportunity. In order for Morelia to defeat America now, they must score at least three goals at the Estadio Azteca. Morelia needs either a 3-1 victory, or any other 2+ goal win where they score more than three goals (4-2, 5-3, etc). It looks like Morelia is done.
