For the past couple of seasons, Cruz Azul and América have shared the Azteca Stadium, this time, for administrative purposes, Cruz Azul will be the home stadium. 

The Azteca Stadium is a soccer stadium located in Mexico City, with a capacity for 87,000 spectators, the largest in Mexico,5 the second largest in America and the seventh largest in the world.2 It was designed by architects Pedro Ramírez Vázquez and Rafael Mijares Alcérreca, and its construction began in 1962 as part of the project to host the 1970 World Cup. It was inaugurated on May 29, 1966 with a friendly match between América and Torino, which ended in a 2-2 draw. The first goal was scored by America's player Arlindo dos Santos.

It is the only stadium that has hosted two FIFA World Cup finals (considering that in Brazil 1950, according to regulations, a final was not played as such)67 in the Mexico 1970 and Mexico 1986 championships. The first final saw the consecration of Pelé as the "king" of soccer, and the second saw the consolidation of Diego Armando Maradona as a historic figure in world football.

With 20 points and 16 goals for and 11 against. Cruz Azul wants to continue its streak of good results in the last five head-to-head matches.

Clasico Joven

Starting in the 1971 and 1972 seasons, the rivalry between these teams grew. The name Clásico Joven was given after journalist Gerardo Peña referred to it as such. At some point, the journalist, when interviewed, responded that he had no intention of making the name prevail.
"I just put the adjective, period. And it was an occurrence, I didn't think about it, nor did I study it, the Clásicos, this Clásico, was made by the Maríns, the Flores, the Quintanos, the Cárdenas, who was champion with both of them, Carlos Reinoso, Enrique Borja, they are truly the Clásicos and those who strengthen them are the soccer fans".
