The Monarcas Morelia vs Club America Liga MX match will be played this Friday, February 14, 2014 (5:30 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Morelos. Monarcas and Aguilas will kick-off Week 7 of the Clausura 2014 in what is expected to be one of the best matches this weekend. Both sides are highly talented, while the pressure lies on Morelia as it is time for them to begin winning games considering the quality in their squad.
The team coached by Eduardo De La Torre has not won in three straight matches, since Week 3 when they defeated the under-performing Tigres 2-0. In fact, Morelia has not won the 2 games (both ties) under new coach ‘Yayo’; therefore the match against America will be crucial to determine in what form Monarcas stands. After the first six games, the ‘purepechas’ stand in 11th place with only 6 points; a loss this Friday will gravely hinder their chances at reaching the playoffs this Clausura 2014.
Club America has had an interesting start to the season under new coach Antonio Mohamed. The ‘Aguilas’ have won 4 games, and lost 2 (12 pts./3rd place); however, the team has not been as explosive as it was when Miguel Herrera managed the team. That is greatly due to Turco’s tactics which rely on controlling the ball, playing on the counter-attack, and also because of some injuries the team has had to face. Undeniably, the team from ‘coapa’ is still one of the best in the Liga MX, and a win will give them the opportunity to reach 2nd place as long as Toluca does not win.
Monarcas Morelia vs Club America Prediction
The Monarcas Morelia vs Club America match will be very entertaining and intense. America is coming back from a loss last week, while Morelia is urged for their first win after three matches. America is the least desperate, therefore Mohamed will use his style which is a solid defense, and slowly controlling the midfield. Monarcas needs to win in front of their fans, therefore expect for Yayo to push his players on the attack. The Monarcas Morelia vs Club America match will end in a 2-2 tie.
