THE HOBBIT'S WORDS!

It is nothing new for the "Hobbit" to see Atlante in a Final, so he is looking forward to achieving his goal of lifting the championship at the Ciudad de los Deportes stadium, in front of his people.

"I am very happy for the consistency I had. I already knew it from my beginnings. I put it into practice and I thank God for the fruit of working well. I knew what I was coming for, to run and have intensity. We took it with motivation. We want to win this title. It is like a dream. It will be a nice show," said the experienced midfielder.

"The people are going to support us to the fullest. We need all the Atlanticians. We have to give that extra. Be intense and enjoy it. We want to win it, but we have to feel it too. It is something incredible. These moments stay in our hearts. It's the same feeling of being able to play another final. There are many resources and it fills me with pride to defend these colors. It will be an intense match because we are at home and with our people," he commented.

THE WORDS OF THE LITTLE GOOSE!

A little over a year ago, Atlante returned to its origins in Mexico City after several years in Cancún and since returning to the capital, the Potros have already reached two Finals in the Expansion League, one of them tonight, where they are looking to be crowned against Tampico. For Humberto Hernández, goalkeeper of the Potros, the best thing that could have happened to the institution was to return to the capital to recover its essence and mystique. "The essence of the team resurfaced with the return to Mexico City, with the management of Mr. Emilio Escalante, with Prof. Mario, and we've gotten along well with the people, and little by little more people are coming to see us at the stadium," he said in an interview.
9:31 PMa month ago

THIS IS HOW THEY ARRIVED

Atlante finished the Apertura 2021 as second place in the overall standings with 33 points and eliminated Venados and Toros de Celaya in the Quarterfinals and Semifinal rounds. They are the favorites to win the title and will try to make their home advantage count.

On the other hand, La Jaiba Brava qualified in seventh place with 24 points and defeated Atlético Morelia and Dorados de Sinaloa in the Quarterfinals and Semifinals, so it hopes to pull off the upset and win the MX Expansion League title for the second time.

About The Stadium

The Ciudad de los Deportes Stadium is a sports venue located in Mexico City, which has a capacity for 36,681 people. It was designed by architect Modesto C. Rollan, and its construction began in 1944 as part of the urban project called Ciudad de los Deportes (Sports City) conceived by Neguib Simón. It was inaugurated on October 6, 1946 with the name of Estadio Olímpico de la Ciudad de los Deportes, with an American soccer match between the Pumas of the UNAM and the Aguiluchos of the Heroico Colegio Militar, with the Universitarios coming out victorious by a score of 45-0.

It was home to América (1947-1955), Necaxa (1950-1955), Atlante (1947-1957, 1983-1989, 1990-1996, 2000-2002 and 2020), Marte (1947-1953), Universidad (1966-1969) and Cruz Azul (1996-2018). It also hosted the Mexican national soccer team from 1947 to 1955, and in 1992 during the second phase of the World Cup qualifiers for the 1994 World Cup in the United States.

In search of the feat

For their part, the Jaiba Brava will seek to spoil the party for the Azulgrana fans and be crowned champions of the Expansion League once again. In the first leg, they were unable to make their home advantage count and ended up with a goalless draw against the Potros; now, they will seek to win at the Azulgrana Stadium and repeat the feat achieved in the previous tournament.
4:47 PMa month ago

Crowning at home

Atlante's Potros de Hierro squad is 90 minutes away from being crowned champions of Mexican soccer; in the first leg they managed to keep a clean sheet in their goal and have now gone five consecutive matches without conceding a goal, so they will not make things easy for Tampico Madero if the Jaiba Brava intend to cause damage at the Ciudad de los Deportes Stadium. Atlante will be looking to avenge last year's tournament and win the crown at home; they have had a spectacular group stage and the icing on the cake would be to win the cup after losing it in the same conditions six months ago.
4:42 PMa month ago

In search of the title

The road to the championship begins, the regular tournament ended for each of the teams that are currently in the final phase of the BBVAMX Expansion League and now every duel, ball and step will be fundamental if they want to achieve the goal set from the beginning of the tournament; to get the trophy that will certify them champions of the Grita México Apertura 2021 tournament. For both teams this will be the most important match of the entire championship, no mistake or success will outweigh the other, there will be no tomorrow or second chance, whoever forgives, fails or underestimates their rival will pay dearly for the price of defeat, Atlante receives Tampico Madero who already won the Expansion League, The colts are looking for one more title to add to their trophy cabinet and what better way to do it in the stadium that accompanied them in so many feats, surrounded by their fans, however, the crab will not make things easy for them and they will try to give the azulgrana fans a bitter pill to swallow.
