Chivas will host León on Wednesday night at the Akron stadium for the first leg of the semi-final of the 2020 Guardianes tournament. Since the team from Guanajuato returned to the first division of Mexico’s football league, Chivas has maintained a hierarchy over them in all competitions.

There have been 20 duels between both teams since 2012, when León won the promotion to return to the Liga MX, and Chivas has won 9 games, drawn 5 and lost 6. Chivas and Léon have faced each other 17 times in the Liga MX and 3 in the Copa MX. Adding to this statistic, Chivas has better results against León when they play in Guadalajara, so in paper they should beat them tonight at the Akron stadium.
