Pumas UNAM: Alan Mozo assisted on the Pumas goal in the first match. He also won six of seven dribble attempts, coming in handy against a deep-lying America side. If he can continue to have success with the ball at his feet, Pumas have a great chance of reaching the final.
Club America: Agustin Marchesin was a busy man in the first leg. He may be busier in the second. America have been surviving largely on sheer talent to do just enough to get by. Pumas offers a different test for them, as a team that can almost match them in offensive prowess. If America scores first and keeps with the strategy of the last three matches, Marchesin may need the game of his life to help Las Aguilas survive.
Pumas were down 2-1 after the first leg against Tigres. They ended up advancing with a 3-1 win in the second leg. In many ways, this might be a more likely second leg for them to win. With their excellent record on the road this season and the conservative style of play America is using, Pumas fans have a lot of reasons for optimism.
