Juárez vs América En Vivo
Coach Miguel Herrera made it clear at the beginning of the Clausura 2019 that the season would not be considered a success if the Aguilas did not win the double. They can take care of half of that “promise” on Wednesday night when in the final of the Copa MX, a trophy they have not won since 1974.América – the defending Liga MX champion – is heavily favored but they will have to defeat a plucky squad that eliminated the Aguilas last season in in recent memory. However, last season Juárez was en route to finishing atop the Ascenso MX table before falling to Diego Maradona’s Dorados of Sinaloa in the Apertura 2018 semifinals. This season, the Bravos are 14th in the 15-team second division primarily because they have struggled to find the net (9 goals in 13 games). América has had little trouble in the Cup since advancing out of the group stage. The Aguilas topped Group 4 with a 3-0-1 record, but had a slim 6-4 goal differential. But the knockout stage has been a breeze. América routed Pachuca 5-2, dominated the Chivas 2-0 in the quarterfinals and trounced Tijuana 4-0 in the semifinals. Coach Herrera has had to deal with injury issues (central defenders Emanuel Aguilera and Bruno Valdez missed last weekend’s league game against Tijuana, a 3-2 loss). Striker Nico Castillo is dealing with a leg issue and captain Oribe Peralta has been out since February after ankle surgery. But the Aguilas have a deep roster and player availability should not be a problem.
