Sebastián Cáceres was the hero in the first leg of the quarter-final between América and Puebla, as he scored the equalizer in the 81st minute to allow the Águilas to host the Camoteros the following Saturday with the advantage that if they draw, they advance to the next phase thanks to their better position in the standings.

The Uruguayan defender has been one of the best at the Azulcrema club since the departure of Santiago Solari and has won the position from Spaniard Jorge Meré, who arrived with the label of a great defender, but nothing has been further from the truth than that statement.
The Spaniard now watches the games from the bench and knows that he has to learn from both Uruguay's Cáceres and Paraguay's Bruno Valdez to be able to fight them for the central defensive position.
Meré's poor play has been reflected since before his arrival to América
Jorge Meré arrived in Mexico with a devaluation of 8.25 million dollars in the last two and a half years. In June 2019 he reached his maximum value on Transfermarkt with 11 million dollars. However, he has fallen to US$2.75 million, the price at which he arrived at the Águilas for the Clausura 2022.
The defender's career began to change for the 2019-20 season. He lost the label of undisputed starter with the German club Koln, in addition to the fact that he was no longer considered for Spain's youth national teams, a situation that led to a drop in his value.
