Victory Eagle! America beat Chivas at home and have one foot in the Grand Final

Águilas del América faced one of the most important games of the year, another match against historically their most important rival, Club Deportivo Guadalajara. The team led by Fernando Ortiz left many in doubt in their previous match, where they lost at home against Atlético San Luis; Although we passed because of the global score, it was a duel that got American fans very upset.

Today things didn’t look great from the start, as Álvaro Fidalgo, one of the most important players of the team, who had physical problems, started on the substitute bench. He was replaced by Pedro Aquino, something that was quite noticeable in the way the Azulcrema team works, having lost the man who is key to dominance in midfield.

This led to a significant lack of control at certain moments in the first half, where Luis Angel Malagon had to appear on several occasions, making massive saves and which helped prevent the collapse of the Americanista goal. Without a doubt, the young American goalkeeper established himself as one of the best Mexican goalkeepers at the moment, keeping Alexis Vega and Co. from scoring in the first half.

Did he badly disallow a goal against the US?

The Eagles still had a goal disallowed, after an exceptional determination by Jonathan ‘Cabesita’ Rodríguez, who sent the ball into the back of the goal, but the assistant referee scored a tight offside. A play that undoubtedly caused much controversy among fans, as many believe it was not so much a clear play as the comment that had to be nullified.

Already for much of the second half, the Eagles settled better on the field of play and were able to dominate it more clearly, creating several chances in the opponent’s goal. It finally yielded results and zero was broken on the scoreboard when, in a masterful game, Alejandro Zendejas scored again for his former team and was in charge of scoring Club America’s first goal in the match.

Through an excellent cut, Zendejas, who did not start as a starter in this match, did not miss his first shot on goal and made a superb shot past goalkeeper Miguel Jimenez into the post.

After the changes, the game broke down and the US had more chances to score, but unfortunately we were not accurate against the opponent’s goal on many occasions. Israel Reyes sent a ball over the crossbar, Diego Valdés missed some very clear plays, as well as Alejandro Zendejas had a clear shot that missed incredibly.

The last few minutes were very intense and both teams tried to score, but luckily our team knew how to handle the game well and Chivas could no longer create many chances in our goal. A very important result for our team, but it is a reality that the opponent has created a lot for us and if it was not for Malagon, things could have been very different.

Let’s hope that Aguilas will continue to improve, because an opponent with a better attack can undoubtedly do us a lot of damage, but for the time being we must first finish the work on the pitch of the Azteca Stadium and avoid another overconfident side like Atlético San Luis Happened in the match against. Whatever the case, Mexico’s greatest team is once again very close to reaching another Liga MX final.
