Storylines

America: It looked like Mateus Uribe and Roger Martinez would both miss the second leg after picking up injuries, but America doctor Jose Vazquez told reports on Friday that there is an 80-percent chance they play. That's a huge boost to this team. 

Cruz Azul: The defense was key in the first leg, allowing just two shots on goal. They'll likely look to be even more defensive in this home game, but something has to happen in attack. The club had just one shot on goal in the first leg, and over the last four games, the team has just two goals. 

America vs. Cruz Azul prediction

In two meetings this season, including the first leg, neither team has scored with both ending in 0-0 draws. In this one, America edges Cruz Azul to win the title. 

Pick: America (+120)
