America’s centennial season will likely be judged on this final. Club America is arguably North America’s biggest and most popular institution.
Star Players like Arroyo, Sambueza, Silvio Romero and Darwin Quintero have not scored in the Liguilla yet. All of America’s scoring ability has fallen on the shoulders of Peralta and midfielder Da Silva.
Peralta finished the leg 1 game with a penalty miss, and Ibarra kept Tigres’ defense busy on the right wing. However, the goal came from Los Azulcremas’ right wing-back, Valdez. Out of the America’s six Liguilla goals, only two have been shot by a forward, and both were by Peralta.
For Tigres, the recent investment in the playing staff at the club was made to bring titles to the northern Mexico institution.
For Tigres, so far every player ready to rumble except right-back Israel Jimenez, while Paul Aguilar is on the long-term injury list for Las Aguilas.
Gignac has played four matches at Azteca so far, and in all of them, he has scored no less than one. However, there is some cloud surrounding as whether Gignac will be 100 percent ready for the game on Christmas.
