America's Statements

Alejandro Zendejas spoke prior to this match: "Yes, you are right (they have many players), I think that on the field we are 11 against 11, the names apart are something else. It has happened to me in other matches in Mexico that they see a team that is not so big and it's a different result".

"Right now we are focused on our game, we know that they are great players and great teams, they are in preseason, but we are focused on our game. It is an extra motivation, facing this type of players is not every day, so we go out to do our thing and more than anything enjoy it."

"The truth is that right now we are focused on what we do. We know they are great players, great teams, they are in their preseason, but we are focused on what we do and continue to play in the best way.

América's Statement

Fernando Ortíz spoke prior to this match: "We had said it, the boys know that facing this kind of matches at an international level might never have occurred to them in the short term. When the schedule came up, internally they made me face to play all of them and they are going to play, because they really deserve it, they are nice matches for them to feel inside the field, to face everyone watching them on television. Minutes more, minutes less, this without taking out of focus what Tijuana is next Saturday because that is the priority. Everyone from the most experienced to the youngest will be there tomorrow".

"On a personal level it is a unique experience. I am fortunate to be in charge, first of all of my team, which I feel fortunate, and secondly, to experience a match with one of the best coaches in the world. Personally, I feel happy, content and privileged in that sense."

"In particular, Jona (Rodriguez) is going to continue to be fine-tuned little by little, as they say. Néstor (Araújo) did the same when he arrived a week before Jona, so we will see how he feels day by day to reach his best expression, which is what we want in the League".
