While Club America’s unbeaten streak in Liga MX stands at 14 games, comprising 11 wins and three draws. Six of those wins have come in the last six games, as the 13-time league champions’ previous draw came in September against Toluca.
Club Tijuana have been on a topsy-turvy ride over the past few games, but the team has consolidated their position in the playoff qualification zone after two back-to-back wins over Atlas FC and Tigres UANL, and they need another positive result to seal qualification.
Despite securing a remarkable result against the defending champions in their last game, Club Tijuana will be the underdogs in this match against a high-flying Club America side. The rampant run of the 13-time Liga MX champions has forced the bookmakers to back them with the best odds of this weekend. The Aguilas will be wary of Tijuana’s mercurial nature but are expected to sail through and clinch all three points.
Since 2011, these two clubs have met 24 times in Liga MX. Club America has the better record with 13 wins under their belt, while Tijuana has won on five occasions. The other six games have ended in draws.
When these two teams locked horns last season, Leonardo Suarez and Diego Valdes were on the scoresheet before Tijuana was reduced to ten men after the dismissal of Misael Dominguez in the 69th minute. Alejandro Martinez scored a consolation goal in the 81st minute.
The Estadio Azteca has not been kind to Club Tijuana, as the team has only won once in 13 visits to the venue. Their solitary victory against the 13-time champions in their own backyard came in the 2012 Apertura season when Cristian Pellerano scored the only goal of the match.
The hosts aim to finish the regular season on a high with a prolific winning streak of eight games. They are favorites to win against Club Tijuana, but their final encounter before the playoffs will be on the road against defending champions Tigres UANL.
However, the momentum is with Club America as they have scored 15 goals in the last six games, keeping four clean sheets and conceding just four goals. Additionally, they have not lost a league game at home since the opening match of the season.
There will be concerns in every department for Club America in the next game as they might be without defender Igor Lichnovsky, midfielder Diego Valdes, and striker Julian Quinones.
Lichnovsky missed the club’s last match against San Luis, while Quinones was not in the squad for the last two games. Valdes has missed three games but may return against Tijuana.
Since he arrived at the club at the start of the season, Quinones has scored six and assisted five goals in 12 appearances. In his absence, the club has relied on Jonathan Rodriguez.
The Uruguayan has not disappointed his side and delivered what he had promised. In the last six games, Rodriguez has scored five goals and is eager to add more to his tally against Tijuana.
The visitors will be wary of the fact that they are underdogs in this encounter. Spirits will be high after two stellar back-to-back wins, but a defeat against Club America will be a big loss for the side on the verge of securing playoff qualification.
As things stand, Club Tijuana is fifth in the 2023 Apertura table with 23 points. They are just three points away from securing a playoff berth. If they cannot get it against Club America, they will certainly get it in their final match of the regular season against Pachuca at home.
Playing Pachuca at home will give Tijuana a massive advantage because the club has lost just one out of eight games at Estadio Caliente this season, winning six and drawing one.
However, on the road, the club has struggled after winning just one out of seven matches, drawing as many, and losing five.
Over the last two games, Club Tijuana has had four different goalscorers - Christian Rivera, Kevin Castaneda, Domingo Blanco, and Fernando Madrigal.
While that is a huge positive, there will be a minor concern revolving around Carlos Gonzalez’s form. He is the club’s leading goalscorer this season with nine goals in 14 appearances but has fired blanks in the last two games.
