A little over a week since their meeting in the 2021 Concacaf Champions League final, both Club America and Monterrey will once again take the field against one another.
Days after Monterrey defeated America 1-0 in the CCL championship, the international title-holders slumped to a 1-1 draw against San Luis on Halloween. Which is nothing new for their league form.
Monterrey are winless in their last five Liga MX appearances, and at time of writing, they don’t even have a spot secured in the 2021 Apertura playoffs. They’re in a rut ahead of their final game of the regular season.
As for America, they’re sitting at the top of the league table. And despite the fact that they also struggled in their latest Liga MX performance, one can’t help but think that last week was a small hiccup in the CCL and Apertura tournament.
With home-field advantage, America manager Santiago Solari should be aiming to make a statement after losing to Monterrey last week.
America for the win (+110)
It would be a stretch to say it was a shocking result, but in general, many anticipated that it would be America who would run away with the CCL title last week.
Up against a lackluster Monterrey, it seemed as though Solari and his men had the perfect opportunity to secure an international title.
Instead, it was Monterrey who stole the show.
Thanks to a lone goal from Rogelio Funes Mori in the 9th minute, Monterrey surpassed America and clinched this year’s CCL title.
Praise is deserved for Monterrey, but it is important to remember that this match was played on their own home ground. And this weekend, they’ll be the ones who will now need to travel to an intimidating away venue.
It’s a different kind of battle at the Estadio Azteca.
In America’s Mexico City fortress, they’ve maintained an undefeated record so far this season with seven wins, one draw and zero losses.
The undefeated streak also stretches beyond this season. In their last 17 games at the Estadio Azteca, America have never lost a Liga MX match.
They are absolutely dominant at home and Solari has never seen a defeat at the local venue since taking charge in early 2021.
We shouldn’t try to take anything away from Monterrey’s CCL title. It was a deserved championship and a significant moment for the team.
That said, were they truly the much better side that night?
America had more possession, corners, crosses, and successful dribbles.
During most of the 1st half and the last 15 or so minutes of the 2nd, America were the one who pushed forward.
Late into the game, they were narrowly close to earning a last-minute penalty as well.
Given another shot or two on target, this match could have easily been the fifth game in a row in all competitions without a win for Monterrey.
The good news for America after a bad week: Right-back Miguel Layun has been outstanding.
As a high-pressing defender, the veteran has three assists in his last three appearances for the Liga MX giants.
His accurate crosses from distance have been mesmerizing to watch as he has found open players near the net.
And keep in mind, Layun didn’t get a chance to play in the CCL final either.
Well-rested and eager to make his mark, the 33-year-old Mexican might be the missing piece of America’s puzzle vs Monterrey
