Club America vs Chivas Predictions and Picks

There’s something intriguing about Chivas. Defying their slight odds with a 1-0 win in their first leg of their quarterfinal series against America, Chivas should be eager to hold onto their momentum and highlight some of the deficiencies that their opposition showed on Wednesday night.

Like many of their other rivalry games in the Clasico Nacional, it’ll be close, but Chivas should once again come out on top after their latest win.

Chivas for the victory

Advantage, Chivas.

After Wednesday’s 1-0 playoff win over America, Chivas are now heading into the second leg of their quarterfinal series with an immense amount of momentum. A victory — especially one over a rival — can work wonders for a team’s confidence, and following their latest result, there should be plenty of high morale in the Chivas locker room.

Although America were imposing for most the 2020 Apertura regular season, they weren’t without their faults. Defensive frailties and questions regarding team selections occasionally emerged over the last few months. On Wednesday, those two factors made themselves known for America, thereby giving Chivas some key opportunities to capitalize on in the attack.

It won’t be easy, but expect Chivas to potentially recreate what was seen in their latest win.

Chivas Recently Got The Job Done Without Key Players

Ahead of their first match against America, Chivas fans were slightly worried about the absences of two starters: Jose Juan Macias and Alexis Vega. Both regularly involved in Chivas’ frontline, many wondered if the Guadalajara club could pull off at least a draw without the injured stars.

Against America, Chivas proved to be perfectly capable of compensating for their absences. Winger Uriel Antuna looked dangerous on the left flank, winger Issac Brizuela was creative with his dribbling on the right, fullback Jesus Sanchez had plenty of space to run with the ball up the field, and off the bench, it was backup Cristian Calderon who stole headlines with his game-winning golazo in the 81st minute.

And the good news for Chivas? If reports are true, Vega could be fit to return this weekend, adding another layer of an attacking threat in the second leg of the quarterfinals.

America’s Backline Remains A Noteworthy Weakness

There’s no way that America can survive this series if their defense continues to play in the same manner. In their latest defeat, it was easy to pinpoint issues regarding starters like Sebastian Caceres, Luis Fuentes, Emanuel Aguilera and others.

Although America had more possession, they ultimately proved to be unable to stifle the numerous chances that Chivas threw at them. And Chivas had plenty. With 18 in total, Chivas accumulated more shots in the game thanks to America’s defense doing a poor job of shutting opportunities down.

And that wasn’t the only worry regarding America either.

More Doubts Have Been Cast Over America’s Approach

What now for manager Miguel “Piojo” Herrera? Even if it’s true that calls for his firing are undoubtedly premature, it is still fair to question his methods and decision-making.

Alongside worries regarding his defensive setup, his last starting XI left a few fans scratching their heads. All of this creates more pressure and confusion for the manager who still doesn’t seem to have either an ideal XI or a concrete gameplan going forward.

And in those times of doubts, Chivas will now have a chance to clinch another win.
