Toluca: Alexis Vega was fairly quiet before his golazo in stoppage time. That shot was his first shot of the match that wasn’t blocked, but the damage it did was massive. For Toluca to advance, they’ll need a few goals. Vega was Toluca’s top goal-scorer and if anyone is going to score on the road for them, I’d imagine it needs to be him. Toluca on the road has been awful, scoring just eight goals in their eight road matches, losing five of those matches in the process.
Club America: Agustin Marchesin will be a very busy guy if Las Aguilas are going to give up nearly 70% of the possession again. The keeper made five saves in leg one. Given the track record of America in leads, we’ll probably be talking about Marchesin a lot.
You might gather how I foresee this match going. The equalizing goal Vega scored may have come extremely late in the first match, but for many observers, it was more than deserved.
