Tigres UANL (3) vs América (5) – 7:30 PM – Univision / Univision Deportes
First leg: América 1-1 Tigres
Tigres UANL will host the decisive second leg of the Gran Final on Christmas Day. The universitarios didn’t have the best record at home in the Volcán during the regular season, with just three wins from nine matches, but they will look to their league-leading defense to keep the Águilas off the board.
América was unbeaten on the road during the regular season, but wins where hard to come by: they were 2-6-0 on their travels. They did have the league’s best attacking record on the road, though, and they were the second-highest scorers overall.
The 1-1 draw in the first leg means this game will be winner-takes-all. Unlike the previous rounds, there are no tiebreakers in the Gran Final; any draw in tonight’s game will send the game to extra time and then penalties if needed.
