Club America finished at the top of the Apertura 2021 and qualified directly for the liguilla, which means playoffs. They got knocked out in the Quarterfinals by Pumas UNMA over two legs, the first leg ending in a draw and the second leg favouring Pumas 3-1. Club America will like to change the disappointment by performing nicely in the Clausura again. Since the start, it has not been the same for America as they have only managed to get 1 point from two matches played. San Luis will now visit America for their 3rd tie of the Clausura. San Luis has not performed well at the start of Clausura, and to get a good outcome from the season, they will have to pull their socks.
The first two games of the Clausura did not go as planned for America. They drew their opening match against Puebla, where Martinez was shown a red card in the first half when America was leading. Puebla equalised after their red card, and the scoreline remained the same. In their second game against Atlas, the Apertura 21 champions, they had to face defeat 2-0. America’s player Federico Vinas was shown a red card in this game. This made two red cards for them in two matches.
San Luis finished 12th in the Apertura table and faced an early exit in the playoffs. San Luis has played three games in the Clausura and has faced defeats in all. In their first game against Pachuca, they lost 2-0; against Atlas, they conceded their own goal, which resulted in a villain and ended in the same scoreline. In the previous game against Juarez, they were unlucky as they allowed a penalty in the ending moments, as they firmly controlled the games since the second half’s start. Javier Guemez was shown a red card in the last moments of the first half.
