The Club America vs Queretaro Liga MX match will be played this Saturday, April 19, 2014 (3:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Azteca. This game between Aguilas and Gallos Blancos will kick-off Saturday’s games in Week 16 of the Clausura 2014. This game, along with most in the weekend, will be crucial to determine which teams obtain a pass into the playoffs.
The Clausura 2014 is coming to its end, with only two weekends of soccer left before the start of the ‘liguilla’. Incredibly, only Cruz Azul (33 points), and Toluca (31 points) have secured a place in the playoffs. What is more surprising, is that there are still fourteen teams in position to battle for a seed. This Week 16 could be the most important week in the tournament, as it will give a better picture of the lucky eight who reach the final stages.
Club America is one of those teams who still has not secured a playoff seed, but also a team which is only a win from earning it. The team coached by Antonio Mohamed is in 4th place with 23 points, and a win could place them in the 3rd position with 26 points. The problem with Club America is that while they have fared well on the road, at home they have not won in their past five matches (4 losses, 1 tie). The game against Queretaro will be significant in their playoff aspirations, but most importantly, it will be important for the Aguilas to earn a ‘home’ win to prior to the playoffs.
The team coached by Ignacio Ambriz will play their most important match thus far into the season. Queretaro is currently in 10th place with 20 points, and out of the playoff picture. A win at the Estadio Azteca will put them deep into the playoff picture, while a loss will most likely eliminate them, and a tie give them hope going into the last weekend of play. The Gallos Blancos have had a roller-coaster season, although they are currently in great form as they are undefeated in their last four games.
Club America vs Queretaro Prediction
Like most games this weekend, the Club America vs Queretaro match will be incredibly intense, worthy of a playoff-like scenario. Both sides will look furiously to earn the 3 points, as the season is coming to its end and there are still fourteen teams looking for the win. In this game, America will be the offensive side, who will dominate the ball, while Queretaro will look to score on the counter-attack, and on set-pieces.
Both teams enter the game with different streaks; America has not won at home in five games, and Queretaro in undefeated in their past four matches. Well, this game will end both of those streaks, and the Aguilas will secure a place in the Clausura 2014 ‘liguilla’. The Club America vs Queretaro match will end in a 3-1 win for the home team.
