The most anticipated match of the ‘Jornada 11’ of the Liga MX Clausura 2017 will take place this Sunday, March 19, 2017 (11:00 AM Pacific) when Pumas UNAM hosts Club America at the Estadio Universitario. This will be the 94th edition of the Clasico Capitalino within the regular season where America has the advantage with 34 wins, 37 draws, and 24 losses.
Pumas UNAM has performed well so far into the season after earning 14 points with 4 wins, 2 ties, and 3 losses. The team coached by Francisco Palencia has the third best offense with 15 goals, yet their defense has suffered significantly after receiving 14 and being tied for third worst in the division. Pumas is favored to win this match as they will have home-field advantage, and a win could potentially place them in first place of the standings with a mixture of other results.
Club America was at the center of controversy all throughout last week after their loss in the Copa MX against Xolos of Tijuana almost ten days ago. The aggression by defender Pablo Aguilar led to his one-year suspension which coach Ricardo La Volpe will now have to work with in a team that has struggled to gather the right results.
The ‘aguilas’ have been one of the greatest disappointments this season as they have earned 11 points after nine games, and sit in 13th place. However, this season has been very competitive and the team from ‘coapa’ is only one win away from potentially escalating into the top-eight.
