The most noteworthy round-of-16 Copa MX match will take place this Wednesday, March 8, 2017 (7:00 PM Pacific) when Xolos of Tijuana hosts Club America at the Estadio Caliente. The winner of this one-game knockout game will qualify into the quarterfinals.
Xolos of Tijuana entered this stage after winning Group 1 with 9 points over Correcaminos and Cimarrones. The team coached by Miguel ‘Piojo’ Herrera won 3 games and lost 1 with 5 goals scored and 3 against. Those stats allowed Tijuana to be ranked as the 6th best team in the competition, yet that seemed to go against their favor when they were matched against the 11th placed Club America. Xolos will have home-field advantage, yet they will also have to play a very good game to defeat an always difficult opponent like the ‘aguilas’.
Club America did not perform as well as followers could hope for, earning 6 points and finishing in 2nd place in Group 3. The team coached by Ricardo La Volpe scored 7 goals and received 7, and this Wednesday they enter the game as the underdog to reach the quarterfinals. It will be interesting to see a player like 16-year old youngster Diego Lainez who surprised many in his debut last weekend in the Liga MX against Leon.
