The America vs Tigres second leg Liga MX playoff match will take place this Sunday, December 1, 2013 (3:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Azteca. During the first leg at the Estadio Universitario, ‘aguilas’ and UANL Tigres played an exciting game which ended in a 2-2 tie. While that tie almost forces Tigres to win at the Azteca this Sunday, it also demonstrates the great capacity both clubs have at qualifying into the semifinals.
The team coached by Miguel Herrera is ready to host Tigres in what is expected to be a sold-out Azteca stadium. With 15,000 fans that will travel from Monterrey, the majestic stadium will have yet another wonderful match where lately it has been filled with successes for America. Nonetheless, the ‘aguilas’ were already shown that Tigres is no easy opponent after the 2-2 tie in the first leg; even as the 8th and lowest seed in the playoffs.
The team from ‘coapa’ will have a full squad as Miguel Layun quickly recovered from his injury scare last week. Club America is the favorite to win the Apertura 2013, but first they must win the series against Tigres. In order to qualify into the semifinals, they have to win, or tie by two or less goals. If they lose, or if they tie by three or more goals, Tigres will win the series.
Like America, Tigres UANL showed last week that they are important title contenders. Ricardo Ferreti’s team played a very good first half where they had possession of the ball, and where they were very intelligent on offense. At the Azteca stadium they will have to play the same way throughout the entire match as they will have to score goals in order to qualify into the semifinals. While a win means they win the series, a tie by three or more goals will also earn them their ticket into the next round.
America vs Tigres Prediction
The America vs Tigres second leg match will be a great game to watch as it will be intense, with a lot of offense. The winner of this quarterfinal series will automatically become strong title contenders, as both teams have great coaches and good talent. Although Tigres will play a great match, Club America is almost unbeatable at home, therefore the team from ‘coapa’ will qualify into the playoffs. The America vs Tigres match will end in a 2-1 win for the ‘aguilas’.
