Liga MX action on Saturday will see one of the world's biggest rivalries write its next chapter as first-place Club America welcome ninth-place Chivas to Mexico City. America are 6-2-1 on the season but are coming off their first loss to Toluca, while Chivas are unbeaten in their last four and can move to as high as fourth place with a win.

Here's are storylines, how you can watch the match and more:


America: Can they bounce back from that Toluca loss? It was a 3-1 defeat where they actually had more of the ball, more of the chances and even more players after a red card yet couldn't take advantage. That came after an emotional week of advancing to the Concacaf Champions League final. Expect Santiago Solari to have his team ready, for them to play a bit more calmly and for this team to put itself in position to win.

Chivas: With JJ Macias now at Getafe, where in the world are the goals are going to come from? They have just three goals in their last six games, but the defense has been improved with only one goal conceded in their last four. Jesus Angulo, who scored the winner last time out against Pachuca, has been impressive and will be tasked with creating for himself and for others. If he can get into dangerous spots and combine quickly to free himself up for looks from range, he can make all the difference. Expect America to zero in on him early.
