Liga MX: Puebla and América, inevitable teams since the change of format in league

Puebla.- Club Puebla and Club América will meet in the Clausura 2022 Quarterfinals. Both teams, positioned 4th and 5th in the general table, will play the first leg at the Cuauhtémoc and the second leg at the Azteca Stadium with a level even in this tie.

Both the eagles and the sweet potato team share the achievement of qualifying for all the leagues since Liga MX decided to eliminate the away goal and integrated the playoff duel giving the opportunity to the twelve best positioned to continue in search of the title.

This decision happened from Guard1anes 2020 after the return of professional football due to the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic; Pueblans and capitals are the only two teams that have played the final stage after this transformation.

In the Guard1anes 2020 Puebla, directed by Juan Reynoso -current coach of Cruz Azul-, they faced Rayados in a playoff and advanced to the finals through penalties, identical in the Apertura 2021 and now in the Clausura 2022, only in the Guard1anes Clausura 2022 scored directly.

On the other hand, Club América has qualified directly in the four Liga MX parties. In Guard1anes 2020 they achieved the pass under the direction of Miguel Herrera -current Tigres coach-, while in Guard1anes Clausura 2021 and Apertura 2021 they did so with Santiago Solari, this time they will play under the command of Fernando Ortiz.
