Club America vs Puebla by KhanT
Club America are not playing good football this season, but they will still make the playoffs. With 26 points America are 5th and in the same boat as Leon and Monarcas, that's good company. As I said already in Queretaro's pick, Club America played Copa MX last night, quarterfinals. The score was 1:0 for America, Oribe Peralta took the lead. But later on in the game Queretaro were able to equalize and oh the irony, ex America player scored for Queretaro to make it 1:1 in Copa quarters. Then in dying minutes, America gets the penalty but Darwin Quintero steps up to take it and misses the whole goal, hilarious scenes. So since there's no extra time in Copa MX, penalty shootouts were on America's side in the end becuase Queretaro missed all 4 of them. America barely won on penalties against a team they were favoured to dominate and make it to semifinals of Copa easily. It turned out to be much harder than expected.
But America are very happy in the end because they did it, now soon (about 1 week from this game vs Puebla) they will face Monterrey in game of Copa MX semifinals and that is a big game for them (Ameirca will host it). But in this round of Liga MX, America will do everything to fix their recent image of bad performances. They are hosting weak Puebla that cannot make it to playoffs anymore, America should field a strong lineup with Oribe Peralta, Romero and Quintero (to fix his confidence for Rayados after missing 2 penalties in 1 game :D) and take this win, even if they don't need it per se for Liguilla, they need it for their fans, confidence, morale boost and everything else going into the clash with Monterrey in Copa MX tha will be incredibly hard, since Monterrey are honestly just the better team at the moment. As for Puebla, they are subpar scorers and weak team that is always near relegation and bottom during Apertura's and Clausura's, they scored only 13 goals this season and this should be America's home win all day. There's a fire in their ass to play much better after that Queretaro Copa MX circuss, I can tell you that much.
