Pachuca has already booked their spot in the knockout rounds and will finish out the group stage against already-eliminated Real España on Wednesday night. León also has nothing to play for, but for the opposite reason: La Fiera has already been eliminated. They’ll host also-eliminated Isidro Metapán on Thursday night.
The two Liga MX teams with something to play for both play on Tuesday night. First, América will host Comunicaciones, with both teams looking to win Group 8 and earn a spot in the knockout rounds. The two are tied on 7 points; if América wins, they advance; if they lose, they’re out. If they draw, the teams will need to be separated by tiebreakers, with a 0-0 or 1-1 draw favoring América and a draw with 2 goals or more favoring Comunicaciones.
Then, Cruz Azul will be playing Alajuelense for first place in Group 7, with La Máquina needing an away win to advance. The Costa Ricans currently top the group with 5 points, while Cruz Azul is in second with 4.
