América is the hottest team in Liga MX right now, winning five matches in a row to move up to fifth in the league standings. The team is just one point behind Atlas for that crucial fourth spot.

The team has won four of those five games via shutout, with the only goal it has allowed during this stretch coming against Tijuana, a match that América won 3-1. The team’s most recent match was a 2-0 victory against Tigres, with Diego Valdés Contreras and Henry Martín each scoring a goal.

In the Apertura, América finished first in the regular season, but was bounced in the quarterfinals of the tournament, falling 3-1 to UNAM.

Projected America starting XI: Ochoa, Fuentes, Cáceres, Valdez, Sánchez, Fidalgo, Sánchez, Martínez, Valdés, Zendejas, Viñas


PositionCruz Azul roster
Goalkeepers Corona, Jurado, Cabanas
Defenders Mayorga, Dominguez, Abram, Joaquin Martinez, Aldrete, Aguilar, Escobar, Guerrero
Midfielders Lira, Romero, Otero, Rivero, Rodriguez, Baca, Zaleta, Jimenez, J. Martinez, Haro
Forwards Antuna, Mendoza, Tabo, Angulo, Morales, Gimenez, Gutierrez, Huescas

Cruz Azul sits one spot—and one point—behind América in the current standings. The team has lost two of its last three matches though, including Sunday’s 1-0 loss to San Luis. Still, a win on Saturday could still result in Cruz Azul moving into the top four.

This team was recently knocked out in the semifinals of the CONCACAF Champions League, losing by a 2-1 aggregate to Pumas.

During the Apertura, Cruz Azul finished in eighth, advancing to the reclassification stage. The team was then dominated by Monterrey, losing 4-1 and eliminating Cruz Azul from the postseason. Can the 2021 Guardianes champion make some noise this postseason?

Predicted Cruz Azul starting XI: Jurado, Domínguez, Aguilar, Aldrete, Mayorga, Lira, Baca, Antuna, Romero, Rivero, Tabó.
