The Santos Laguna vs Club America second-leg quarterfinal match will be played this Saturday, May 3, 2014 (7:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio TSM Corona. Laguneros and Aguilas will look for the pass into the Clausura 2014 semifinals after playing a wonderful and exciting first-leg match last Wednesday which ended in a 5-3 win for Club America.
Santos Laguna left Mexico City with a terrible feeling because not only did they lose, but they lost in a terrible fashion. After winning at the Estadio Azteca 3-2 with only ten minutes to play, the aguilas were not only able to tie the game, but also to leave the first leg with a nice 2 goal lead. Santos has had the best offense this season, yet their defense has been a complete nightmare which has received 34 goals including the last match.
In Torreon, the Laguneros will need to win by two goals or more goals, which means that will focus on using their biggest stregth; the offense. Winning by a two goal margin will not be easy considering they face a top team like America who has a coach like Antonio Mohamed who focuses greatly on mentality; especially on important games like those in the playoffs.
The aguilas have not been very productive on offense this season, yet defense is on of Turco’s biggest weapons. For that same reason, America needs to play on the counter-attack, with the idea of not losing by two goals.
