America (1) vs. (6) Toluca
Las Águilas wrote another chapter in the Liga MX history books with their emphatic 11-2 aggregate score Puebla 11-2 with Fernando de Ortiz many peoples favourites to lift the Apertura 2022 title. The Coapa side now face a tough test against a Toluca side who finished sixth in the regular season and have beaten FC Juárez in the repechaje and were too strong for Santos Laguna. The ‘Red Devils’ are something of a black horse for many and will be tough to beat at their Nemesio Diez fortress.
