What has been León and América's form ahead of this game?
León enters this game on a four-game winning streak, and if they had not lost that game against Chivas on Matchday 16, they would have made it to the playoffs with a ten-game winning streak. Ignacio Ambriz's men have won each and every playoff game they've played before Sunday's clash.
América will make it to Nou Camp Stadium with only three wins out of their five last games, including their two most recent 1-0 losses, against Cruz Azul and León. Miguel Herrera's men need to step up their goalscoring prowess, since they have only scored three goals, the same amount they have conceded during the ongoing playoff stage.
What do León and América need to get to the Liga MX final?
León needs to win or draw this game to make it smoothly to the Clausura 2019 final. Los Esmeraldas would even make it to the final if they lost the game with a 1-0 score. Either way, Ambriz's men need to keep a clean sheet at all costs to avoid any predicaments.
América needs to score at least two goals, regardless of how many León scores. Any outcome of the game that does not see América scoring twice will be the end of the 2019 Clausura tournament for Las Águilas.
León vs América - Head-to-head
This will be the fifth playoff tie between these teams.
León has beaten América in two of their four playoff ties. The first one came during the Invierno 97 tournament (3-2 aggregate), the most recent in the Apertura 2013 final (5-1 aggregate).
América has beaten León in two previous playoff ties, both of them in the Quarterfinal stage. The first one took place in the Verano 2001 tournament (5-2 aggregate), the other one took place in the Apertura 2015 tournament (5-3 aggregate).
León won their three most recent games against América: 2-0 in the Apertura 2018, and a 3-0 victory in the current competition. Furthermore, the green and white side won the first leg of this tie last Thursday.
América's last win against León took place in the Clausura 2018 tournament. That game saw Miguel Herrera's men claim all the points with a 2-0 win.
León vs América on social media
The Azulcrema side knows that there are no mistakes allowed if they want to make it to the final. With that in mind, the team let their fans know on their Twitter feed what they need to try to win back-to-back trophies. It won't be easy for them to qualify for that game, but they seem willing to try despite some questionable calls by the team's coach regarding his strikers (yes, we are talking about Nico Castillo).
