In a Week 12 Clausura 2016 match of the Liga MX, Chiapas will host Club America at the Estadio Victor Manuel Reyna this Saturday, April 2, 2016 at 8:00 PM Pacific. This could be a lopsided match between Jaguares of Chiapas who has had difficulties this season, and Aguilas of America who are only 3 points away from first place in the standings.
Chiapas has had a below average Clausura 2016 in which they sit in 13th place with 12 points. hey have suffered offensively, as they have only scored a league’s third worst 13 goals; defensively they have been average with 16 goals against. A win Saturday night against a difficult visitor like Club America will raise their point total to 15, and would land them scratching for a playoff seed.
Club America has improved their as the season has got older, and that reflects on their third place position. With 21 points, 22 goals in favor and 15 goals against, the ‘aguilas’ are in 3rd place where a win against Chiapas could potentially place them in first place were Monterrey lose. Some concerns for coach Ignacio Ambriz are that forwards Oribe Peralta (recently injured) and Dario Benedetto (returns from injury) may not be in full form to dictate Club America’s offense.
Where to Watch
The Chiapas vs Club America match will be televised on Univision Deportes at 8:00 PM Pacific.
