The América of Argentine coach Santiago Solari visits this Thursday the home of Pachuca of Uruguayan Paulo Pezzolano, with the goal of taking advantage in the quarterfinals of the Clausura of Mexican football. With 12 victories, two draws, three defeats and 38 points, the Águilas de Solari finished in second place and now they intend to confirm themselves as one of the two favorites against an opponent that, although they finished eighth, is on a good streak.
Now that he has his three main forwards in good shape, Colombian Roger Martínez, Uruguayan Federico Viñas and Mexican Henry Martín, coach Solari, former Real Madrid coach, will try to bet on the offensive to get ahead this Thursday in Pachuca and confirm it at home on Sunday.
América was the team with the most lethal attack in the regular phase, tied with Cruz Azul and Toluca, all with 26 goals and its defense was fifth, with 14 annotations received, aspects in which it was better than Pachuca, eighth in attack, with 20 targets, and in defense, with 19 accepted.
Solari will not have to rely on statistics and will have to take care of the good closing of the championship of Pachuca, which ended with four consecutive wins.
Led by Pezzolano, Pachuca scored 11 goals and received three in those last matches and this Thursday he will go out to win in his stadium with an attack led by Roberto de la Rosa, Erick Sánchez and Argentine Ismael Sosa.
