The Clásico Nacional between America and Chivas is getting closer and closer, speculation about the line-ups and the possible winner have been the order of the day. The duel between the most popular teams in Mexico has already made history and has not yet been played.

For the first time in more than 70 years of history, there will be a female presence on the field. This is the referee Karen Díaz who will act as assistant in the match corresponding to Day 11 of the Guardianes 2021 of the Liga BBVA MX. Díaz has been active in all the days of the contest so far and has done a great job in all the meetings in which he has participated. Her first match was the one that opened this tournament between Mazatlán and Necaxa.

She has already had contact with both teams that will play the Derby. She was present on Matchday 2 in the match between Toluca and Chivas that ended with a one-goal tie. With America, she was on the eighth round against Pachuca that was played on the Azteca Stadium field and ended with a 2-0 victory in favor of the 'Águilas'.

The Mexican referee has had a career on the rise, since she began her activity in the third division and later reached second, the late Ascenso MX was her last step until she reached the Liga MX Femenil and now in the Liga BBVA MX she is showing her talent as an assistant.

The presence of Díaz will not be the only surprise that the game will have, because after a year of pandemic, people will be able to return to a home game at the Chivas stadium when it comes to the regular season. The last time they had a presence, it was in the quarterfinals of the Guardians 2021 that left the Sacred Herd as the winner, which ultimately qualified for the semifinals.
