The question was raised in the press after it became known that the two Guadalajara clubs will fight for a place in the semifinals in the first and second legs.

This is because Barra 51, who cheer for Atlas, were involved in the tragedy at Estadio Corregidora, as they had previously assaulted the Querétaro supporters' club.

And although the access to Liga MX stadiums as visitors was prohibited to the cheering groups, it seems that this situation could change in the Liguilla, according to the Mexican press.

Why could another tragedy like the one at the Estadio Corregidora occur?

According to information from journalist Jesús Hernández, Chivas' board of directors will allow Chivas' cheering groups to enter the match at the Akron Stadium.

It should be remembered that after the tragedy at the Corregidora Stadium, the president of Club Deportivo Guadalajara decided to prohibit access to these groups. 

Amaury Vergara had said after the tragedy that the cheering groups were banned from the Akron Stadium until further notice, but according to the journalist's information, this decision has been changed.

What is most worrying is the long-standing rivalry that exists between Barra 51 and the Chivas barras, who in the past have been involved in acts of violence, so the conditions for a new tragedy in Mexican soccer could be ripe. 

What is the problem with Barra 51 of Atlas?

In addition to the fact that this organization is one of the most conflictive in Mexican soccer, all of its members have not wanted to process their Fan ID, as dictated by the presidency of Liga MX.

This decision was made to have control over all the people who access soccer stadiums and who are part of the cheering groups. 

However, not all the members of Barra 51 have wanted to process this identification, which would serve to have greater security in the stadiums, so now the press in Mexico.

And for the Atlas vs Tigres match on April 30, Barra 51 was present at the Jalisco Stadium, so they will likely try to gain access to the Akron Stadium, which would create the conditions for another tragedy, like the one at the Corregidora stadium.
