Nearly two years on from Chivas’ last win over América
The 12-time Mexican champions have not beaten América for almost two years.
This Saturday, the Mexican Súper Clásico will take place between Club América and Chivas. The team coached by Fernando Ortiz start as favourites, as they have gone nine games undefeated, while Los Rojiblancos are heading into the game after defeat to Tigres.
The Estadio Azteca stadium is one of the best places for the Rebaño Sagrado, as they have recorded some big wins there. However, the 12-time Mexican champions have not beaten América for almost two years and have not won at the Estadio de Santa Ursula for the same amount of time.
The last time Guadalajara were victorious in Mexico City against América was in the second leg of the Guardianes 2022 quarter-finals, where they won 2-1. On that occasion, Miguel Herrera’s men were obliged to win, having lost the first leg with a goal from Cristian Calderón.
In the return leg, Victor Manuel Vucetich’s men again imposed themselves on the game and with two long-range shots from ‘Chicote’ Calderón, Chivas beat the club from the capital. Minutes later Henry Martín scored a goal, but it was to no avail and América were eliminated against their fierce rivals.
The last time Chivas defeated América in the regular season dates back to the Apertura 2016, when Matías Almeyda’s side thrashed the Azulcremas 3-0. This time around, head coach Ricardo Cadena will have to select his strongest side to pull off an upset against the Eagles.
