Club America vs Leon (By: Dajkula)
America is facing Leon in the first semi-final match of the Mexican Clausura. America is the winner of the Apertura and they are quite familiar with the playoffs. They have reached the last 4 final stages. Leon, on the other hand, is the surprise package of the Clausura and they dominated. With 13-2-2 and 41:14 gd they are by far the best side. They only lost twice and lastly when they already secured the first place.
Leon has been the best-attacking side this season and it has been their forte. They scored at least 2 goals in 8 of their last 9 matches. They have Mena that has been unstoppable with 14 goals so far and is the best in the league.
America is maybe a bit content with the title of the Apertura so they are not playing so good this time. They lost even 6 matches for a total of 9-2-6. Many say that they don`t have the proper connection in attack this season. The attacker Castillo has been a letdown and will probably be replaced today. America had some problems in the first match of the playoff with Cruz Azul but they took advantage of the good home form and beat them 3:1. It was enough for the return match which was very frustrating but they prevailed. America has much better results at home at the Azteca but this match won`t be played at the Azteca. Because of the high pollution in Mexico City these days the game was relocated to neutral ground in Queretaro.
Queretaro is somewhere between Leon and Mexico city so there will be no advantage for either team. Leon already bet America with 3:0 away this season. The surely can do it again.
The home side will be missing the regular defender Alvarez(34-3) while also the defender Valdez(37-9) is a doubt. Leon is missing Aquino(mid.16-2) and Ibarra.
Since this is played @ a neutral ground, I trust Leon more. They showed much better games this season.
