Both Chivas de Guadalajara and Club America sit level in the Liga MX standings heading into Round 13 with 17 points apiece, and the upcoming match on Sunday is a proverbial six-pointer. Under Antonio Mohamed, America have regressed from the heights they reached under Miguel Herrera, while Chivas have taken a huge step forward under Jose Luis Real to put themselves in playoff contention at this point in the season.
