This Friday begins the activity of day 11 of Guard1anes 2020, when Necaxa receives Puebla and Cruz Azul flies to “La Perla del Pacifico” to measure forces against Mazatlán FC.
One of the games that will arouse the most passions during this day will be the so-called “Clásico de Clásicos” , a match that will star the Águilas del América and Chivas del Guadalajara.
“It doesn't matter how you get there” , “The classics are not played, they are won” or “Anything can happen on the field”, are some phrases that have flooded sports news portals throughout the country. The clash between the most popular teams in Mexico will always give something to talk about.
Due to the health emergency caused by COVID-19, the National Classic will have an atypical environment, as it will be played without an audience in the stands. The players will not be greeted by the whistle or the chants of the fans, but by a quiet Azteca Stadium, some empty seats. The absences mean so much.
HOW DO THEY GET THE CLASSIC?
This will be Classic 31 of the Liga BBVA MX, counting the regular and final phase, since the creation of the short tournaments. The balance indicates 10 victories for the Coapa team (three in Liguilla) , eleven draws (three in the final phase) and 9 victories for the Guadalajara team.
The azulcrema come to the meeting with a positive streak of five Clásicos without losing to Guadalajara, that is, since Miguel Herrera returned to the bench for the Eagles. “El Piojo” can boast a record of six wins, two draws and one loss, these figures correspond to the two stages of the Mexican coach in America.
According to information from the Center for Technological Innovation, the best offense of the tournament will be measured against one of the best defenses. The Eagles of America register 21 annotations in 10 games. Chivas, meanwhile, has only conceded 8 goals.
