Some 18 days after the semifinals ended, the Gran Final of the Apertura 2016 is finally ready to get underway. After a hiatus caused by América’s participation in the Club World Cup, the Liguilla continues this Thursday with the first leg of the final.
The final is a total goals, aggregate score series; away goals are not tiebreakers. Should the aggregate be tied at the end of the second leg, the match will proceed to extra time and penalties, if needed.
All times Eastern, home team listed first.
