Club América won for the second time under Fernando Ortiz, a result that not only gives them a breath of fresh air but also allows them to start dreaming ahead of the end of the tournament, in which they will face their most important matches against rivals that have been protagonists in the Clausura 2022.

After the 1-0 win over Necaxa on Saturday night, the Coapa team is in 12th place in the Clausura 2022 and, although they could drop down the standings by Sunday afternoon, they are starting to hope to reach the Liguilla.

Tano Ortiz's team will face four challenging matches in the last five rounds, as these teams are in the qualification zone and two of them are fighting for the lead.

América's last 5 games in the Clausura 2022

The first and perhaps the "easiest" game for América will take place next weekend against FC Juárez, a team that is experiencing a crisis under Ricardo Ferretti and is in second-to-last place.

Afterwards, the capital team must visit Tijuana, which have had irregular results but even so have been enough to put them in ninth place with one more point than the Azulcremas.

The final nine points to be played will be the most complicated for América, as every point dropped could be crucial in the quest for a place in the top 12.

Later, América will face León at the Estadio Azteca, who have also begun to recover their level and are in sixth place with five wins, three draws, and three defeats. León will also be looking for a win to try to get into the top four.

The second last match will be against an old friend, as they will play against Miguel Herrera's Tigres, who could deliver one of the final blows to the Azulcremas. They are currently in second place and have only suffered one loss in the tournament.

The last and most important match will be against their neighbors Cruz Azul, who are currently in fourth place and will be looking to enter the Liguilla with a special motivation as they may have in their hands the opportunity to leave América out of the Liguilla.
