The long-awaited Clásico Nacional will take place in a moment when the two sides live different situations, although both are heading to the same direction, which is Liga MX 2021 playoffs. Still, Club América are having an impressive form in the tournament. They've won five of their last six league games and are really close to the first seed.
Santiago Solari's team now will face a hard challenge, though. They'll have to prove at a big game like it is the Clásico de Clásicos.

The Clásico Nacional has been played 236 times, taking into account all competitions and even friendlies.América won 86 games, while Chivas defeated them 77 times and they tied in 76 occasions.
