The 90 minutes are over, América draws again with Pachuca and they split points in this closing soccer action.

In the first half, the Azulcremas were the ones who started with possession of the ball and the intention of attacking, however, despite the few opportunities generated, it was Pachuca who took the lead on the scoreboard first. Later, before the end of the first half, América would tie the score. 

In the second half, things remained the same, with a little more intensity on the part of the Eagles but with few attacking chances compared to the first half.

Duels between these two!

Pachuca and América usually give us great matches when these two teams meet, whether in the regular or group stage. Last time they stole the show in the quarterfinals with a pair of great games at the Estadio Hidalgo and the Estadio Azteca, resulting in a 5-5 aggregate score in favor of Los Tuzos on away goals. Let's hope the luck of the goal smiles again today!
8:26 PM2 months ago

The Tuzos have arrived!

Pachuca has arrived home and is ready to face the Eagles.

8:21 PM2 months ago

The eagles are here!

América is already inside the Hidalgo Stadium to face their match against Pachuca for Matchday 11. The last time these two gave us a great match in the first leg of the Guard1anes 2021 Quarter-Finals. 
8:16 PM2 months ago

How does Pachuca arrive?

Pachuca will host the Águilas in midweek and will visit Puebla on the weekend, before the October FIFA Day. Paulo Pezzolano's side urgently need points to get into the playoff zone. The Tuzos have failed to live up to expectations after an encouraging start against León.
8:11 PM2 months ago

How did America fare last week?

The Azulcremas hosted their fierce rivals last Saturday night at the Estadio Azteca for the 82nd edition of the Clasico Nacional. In a duel that was marked by controversy, bad refereeing, rivalry and the return of the fans to this Clasico at the Coloso de Santa Ursula, the team coached by Santiago Solari ended up tying 0-0 against Guadalajara. With this result, América maintained its undefeated record at home, however, it put its leadership at stake, as it is only one point ahead of second place. 
8:06 PM2 months ago


The wait is over, today the Liga MX returns and brings a duel that promises much in the Bella Airosa when Pachuca receives América at the Hidalgo Stadium. On the one hand, the locals have the mission of continuing to add points to get into the playoffs and try to climb positions in the general table to avoid having to suffer at the end of the regular phase as they did last season. Meanwhile, América's eagles are at the top of the general table with 21 points, however, they need to leave the Hidalgo Stadium with a victory, as Monterrey, Toluca and Atlas are all in their sights and a loss or a draw could have serious consequences for the Coapa team.

América Key Player:

America's idol and made in the eagle nest, Guillermo Ochoa, will be the player to follow during this match throughout the 90 minutes, the starting goalkeeper of America and the Mexican national team has become a real wall under the three posts. In his two spells with the Azulcremas he has played 26,220 minutes in which he has made 290 appearances in the starting lineup, he has also registered 357 goals against and 81 clean sheets, so Memo will be the player who could tip the balance from the defensive side in favor of the eagles.

7:46 PM2 months ago

Pachuca Key Player:

One of the players with the shortest track record in Liga MX and one of the best known by Mexican football fans, Nico Ibañez, the Argentinean has earned the respect and admiration of several soccer lovers for his great performance in every match. With the Tuzos he has played 532 minutes of which he has played in 7 games in the starting lineup, he has scored 1 time, however, these numbers are misleading since the Argentinean stood out for being a real goal scorer with the Atlético de San Luis squad and could break the net at any time.

7:41 PM2 months ago

G. Ochoa; J. Sanchez, B. Valdez, E. Aguilera, S. Reyes; R. Sánchez, P. Aquino; R. Martínez, A. Fidalgo, M. Lainez; H. Martín.

América and Pachuca have met on a total of 53 occasions (18 wins for the Azulcremas, 12 draws and 23 wins for Pachuca), with a slight advantage for the home side. However, these duels tend to be very exciting, as the Eagles have scored 85 goals to Pachuca's 83. Their last meeting was in the second leg of the Guard1anes 2021 quarterfinals at the Azteca Stadium, where the score was 4-2 in favor of the Americans.
7:26 PM2 months ago

The Stadium

It was inaugurated on February 14, 1993 and became the home of Pachuca, which previously played its home games at the Mexican Revolution Stadium. The inaugural game was between the Tuzos and Pumas of the UNAM, with a score of 0-2. It has subsequently been rebuilt and modernized.

It was reopened on August 1, 2004, also with a match between Tuzos and Pumas of the UNAM, for the Champion of Champions Cup, that game was won by Pachuca 2-1 (although in the second leg they lost in CU), in which Edson Arantes do Nascimento "Pelé" was the main figure. It has been part of the promotions in the 1995-96 and 1997-98 seasons, as well as part of the club's titles in Invierno '99, Invierno 2001, Apertura 2003 and Clausura 2006; as well as the CONCACAF Champions Cup title in 2002, 2007, 2008 and 2010 and a Copa Sudamericana in 2006.

It has a camera monitoring system that allows for comprehensive surveillance and two giant screens. It is designed in such a way that it allows good visibility from any of its seats, it has a VIP area with boxes where there is a restaurant in service during the events. It also has 5 dressing rooms, press, chronicle and photography rooms. The stadium has a "tunnel of time" in its bowels, where the graphic history of the Pachuca club is exhibited, and an interactive museum for children's entertainment.

Keep flying high

It is not unusual to see the team of the Aguilas del América in the highest places in the general table, after having a good Guard1anes 2021 tournament under the command of Santiago Solari, the Azulcrema squad will look for this to be the tournament of their dreams by winning the Concahampions and Liga MX titles, but first they must secure a place in the Mexican soccer playoffs and take three points against the Tuzos. Last matchday they drew against their fierce rivals and the next match after Pachuca is the capital city derby, which is why it will be very important to leave the Hidalgo Stadium with a victory in this 10th date of national football.
7:16 PM2 months ago

Be strong at home

The Pachuca Tuzos have had a tough start to the tournament and are in 13th place overall with 10 points, the result of 3 wins, 1 draw and five defeats so far in the championship. They are also one of the teams with the worst defenses, having allowed 10 goals in their own goal. Last matchday they managed to beat Necaxa by the minimum difference also in the Bella Airosa, which means that by receiving a game at home could mean another opportunity to continue adding three points and dream of reaching the playoffs or securing a place in the play-offs. 
7:11 PM2 months ago

Two completely different realities

On the one hand, the locals are one position away from being among the playoff places, however, they have not played their best soccer and have struggled to find their optimal rhythm towards the end of the regular phase, while the Azulcremas are flying at the top of the league as they are the leaders of the general table and have only lost once so far in the tournament. This match will be fundamental for both teams before the October break due to the FIFA date, and a victory could make the difference in the future to qualify or not for the Mexican soccer playoffs. A win could make the difference in the future to qualify or not for the playoffs in Mexican football.
