América and Monterrey faced each other after they last saw each other during the final of the Apertura 2019. This time Guillermo Ochoa was the MVP of the game and ensured América claimed a 1-0 victory.

It was the 15th minute of the game when Monterrey were playing better but América responded with Luis Fuentes scoring the first and only goal of the match after a great pass from Giovani dos Santos.

Immediately afterwards, América thought they had a second when José María Basanta put through his own net, but after a VAR check the goal was disallowed for a foul in the build-up.

In the 31st minute, Monterrey came close to tying the game, but Ochoa was in fantastic form and kept a clean sheet.
