América vs. Morelia: What to watch for
Club América scored a heroic win against reigning champions UANL Tigres in Monterrey. Las Aguilas have gone from being a rare underdog in the first round to being among the usual favorites to win the Liguilla. América couldn’t have dreamed of home field advantage after being a six seed, but this is the nature of the Liguilla.
Morelia is a true David though, with only one championship won back in 2000 and only one top-two finish in the last 15 years. It’s on the verge of history, and for their opportunity to come against the most successful Mexican club makes their narrative all the more intriguing. Monarcas advanced last round despite a wild 3-3 home game with two red cards in the second half, and a 96th-minute equalizer which proved to be critical for the advancement into the semifinals.
