Match Preview

Roger Martinez Club America

Perhaps surprisingly given their stature in the Mexican game, these two sides have only ever met in the Campeon de Campeones once before.

That was way back in 1976, when the title was contested between the league and cup champion, and America won 2-0. That was just their second title, though they have moved to five since then.

As winners of the last three, Tigres will be feeling confident of rising to the occasion but this will be a slightly strange occasion. With so many first-team players rested after the Copa America and Gold Cup, it may well have the feeling of a pre-season friendly.

Still, America fans will have to wait a little longer to see their new star man Giovani dos Santos in action as he works his way back to full fitness following an injury-hit final season with the LA Galaxy.

“We are continuing to try and accelerate his return,” said manager Miguel Herrera. “However, we don’t want to throw him in there before he is ready and risk an injury.”

Opposite number Ricardo Ferretti is looking forward to the occasion but doesn't think losing would take any of the gloss off their Clausura title, won after a two-legged final against Club Leon.

Like America in the Apertura, they finished second in the league season but eventually prevailed in the end-of-season play-offs.

"The trophy is a recognition to what was done in the two tournaments," Ferretti said. 

"There must be a winner, but it does not mean that the loser has done it wrong, it is a prize for both for what was done the previous year".
