A motivated Chivas side!

Despite not having their boss Luis Fernando Tena on the bench as he tested positive for COVID-19, Chivas played their best game of the tournament in the semifinal against bitter rivals América.

In a match full of great goals and intensity, the Guadalajara side was able to win it by a 4-3 margin and seal their pass to this final match.

Will Chivas keep it up and win it?

2:10 AMa month ago

Cruz Azul in great form!

The blue team is the team with the best form in Mexican soccer at the moment, as shown by their three group stage wins over Pumas, Toluca, and America.

On the semifinals, they made a last-minute comeback to equalize the game against Tigres, and then, they were able to beat them in the penalty shoot-out.

Can Cruz Azul lift this trophy?
