Key player Cruz Azul

Santiago Gimenez | The Mexican striker was called up to the national team this week and may not see many minutes in this match, however, he is in charge of the Cementero attack along with Uriel Antuna, with whom he has been a good teammate. Santi has 3 goals and 1 assist in the current tournament and will be looking to increase his goalscoring quota because if Cruz Azul wants to win, it will have to get back to scoring.

7:18 PMa month ago

Key player America

Diego Valdes | Although he struggled to adapt to the Azulcrema team at the beginning of the tournament, in the most recent match against Tigres he contributed with a great goal and was the man who gave fluency to the attack, so if he can return to the level he had with Santos, he will be a key element for the Águilas in the playoffs. This Chilean player has responded to pull the strings in the midfield. In the last match he scored a goal, had 5 shots and 3 crosses.

Cruz Azul: Back to winning ways

On the other hand, the Celeste team, led by Juan Reynoso, is going through a totally different moment than the Eagles of America. Unlike their archrivals, La Máquina started off well, but with the passing of the matchdays and after the failure in the Concachampions League, Cruz Azul has been fading in this final stretch of the tournament where it has registered 4 points out of a possible 12 in the last four matches. The Celestes are coming off a surprise defeat at home to Atletico de San Luis, their sixth loss in a row. They are currently below America in sixth place with 24 points from 7 wins, 3 ties and 6 losses.

América: Take advantage of the good streak

From hell to heaven in a matter of matchdays, that is how the Clausura 2022 tournament has been for the América eagles, who hit rock bottom almost halfway through the tournament and found themselves at the bottom of the table. However, thanks to Fernando Ortiz, the Azulcrema team is beginning to see the light and wants to build on its six-game winning streak. The Águilas need a win to be able to aspire to a possible direct play-off spot, but they would have to wait for results from Puebla and Atlas. America is currently in fifth place, with seven wins, four draws and five defeats, accumulating 25 points. In their most recent match, the Azulcremas went to the university stadium to snatch three points from Miguel Herrera's Tigres in a 2-0 win.

The month is coming to an end and with it the regular phase of the Grita México Clausura 2022 tournament. Tonight, Saturday's activity, corresponding to matchday 17, will feature a very attractive and even match in the country's capital. The Azteca Stadium will be the venue for a match in which two teams will be looking for the three points and the chance to qualify for the Playoffs; without a doubt, a spicy touch for this Clasico Joven. On the one hand, America will need to take advantage of their good run against Cruz Azul, who are experiencing a complicated moment in this final phase of the tournament.
