This is what happened in the last Liga MX game between Chivas and America
It’s El Clásico Nacional as Chivas Guadalajara and Club América meet in Liga MX for the first time in Torneo Clausura 2023 this weekend.
A Liga MX clash marked in red for many fans of Mexican soccer as two of the biggest names in the game face off on this weekend as Chivas Guadalajara play Club América in the much-anticipated Clasico Nacional.
The two most successful clubs in the history of Liga MX - América with 13 titles, Chivas with 12 – sit in fifth and fourth respectively in the 2023 Liga MX Apertura table with just six match days remaining in the regular season.
Game 220 of El Clasico Nacional
The Akron Stadium in Guadalajara hosts ‘El Clasico’ this weekend and the last time the sides met in Jalisco (March 2022) the game ended in a 0-0 stalemate. The ‘Sacred Flock’ faced ‘The Eagles’ from CDMX in a friendly game played in the US last September when America ran out 1-3 winners.
The last Liga MX meeting between the teams took place as part of the Apertura 2022 campaign with Club America edging out Chivas at the Azteca as they recorded a 2-1 win over their eternal rivals. An early goal from top marksman Henry Martin in the fifth minute was followed up with a second in the 51st minutes from Zendejas. Despite a late rally from Chivas with a Calderon goal offering a lifeline for the visitors, ‘Las Aguilas’ held out to secure maximum points as Chivas’ Fernando Beltran was given a red card in stoppage time.
Saturday’s meeting at the Akron will be the 220th staging of the Clásico Nacional with América having the upper hand having won 78, lost 72 with 69 meetings ending in a draw.
