The sensational Chivas Guadalajara vs Club America ‘Super Clasico’ will kick-off this Sunday, March 30, 2014 (6:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Omnilife. The most significant match in every Liga MX season will be hosted in the beautiful Omnilife stadium in what is expected to be a game filled with passion, and nerves as both teams are urged to earn a win. The host Chivas will attempt to return to their winning ways to remain deep into the playoff picture, while the ‘aguilas’ cannot afford to lose this rivalry game in their roller coaster season.
This version of the ‘Clasico Nacional‘ will have an extra ingredient considering it will be the first time in many seasons that both teams enter the game in similar forms. Chivas has had a stressful and uncomfortable week as they have dealt with the violent incidents from last week’s ‘Clasico Tapatio’ at the Estadio Jalisco. As for Club America, they enter the game after playing two of their worst games of the season.
The Rebaño Sagrado is ready to take on their biggest rivals Club America, in a game not only important due to sports antagonism, but also in their quest to reach the playoffs. The team coached by Jose Luis Real has had an irregular season which has them in 9th place with 17 points. To their fortune, the Clausura 2014 has been incredibly competitive, therefore if Chivas defeats America they have the chance of reaching 5th place.
The visitors from ‘Coapa‘ will also play one of their most important games of their season when they visit Chivas. Club America has the same amount of points as Chivas with 17, although they have a better goal differential which has them in 8th place. This game is noteworthy for coach Antonio Mohamed who will coach in his first national ‘classic’. With the win, the ‘aguilas’ not only could reach 5th place, but the morale boost could greatly aid them in their quest to keep improving as the season nears its end.
Chivas vs Club America Prediction
This version of the ‘Super Clasico‘ on paper is one of the most interesting of recent tournaments. On one side, Club America does not enter the game in their greatest form, but that allows the game to have two teams in a similar condition. Guadalajara has had many problems this season, but they have shown vast improvement and a win will puch them closer to the ‘liguilla’.
The game itself will be very hard fought, with America dominating the game, and Chivas playing defensively and on the counter-attack. Chivas is the underdog due to their offense who will miss both Omar Bravo and Rafa Marquez Lugo. In a great atmosphere and match, the Chivas vs Club America ‘Clasico Nacional’ will end in a 1-2 win for the visiting side.
