Club America aim to keep pace with runaway leaders Cruz Azul when they square off against Tigres UANL at the Estadio Universitario in Liga MX on Saturday.

The Eagles are currently on a six-game winning run in the league but trail their Clásico Joven rivals by two points.

Santiago Solari's men are looking to clinch their first top-flight title since Apertura 2018. This is no easy task as only four games remain in the Clausura and 'The Machines' aren't showing any signs of slowing down.

The best they can do is to keep pushing and they now face the reigning CONCACAF Champions League champions in a potential banana skin.

Tigres are coming off the back of a first league victory in six games and are looking to secure a spot in the Reclassification again.

There have been 53 previous clashes between the sides, with Tigres and America both winning 18 times against each other.

In the Apertura last year, America triumphed 3-1 at home, their third consecutive victory against Tigres in the league.
