Elite matchup

I'm here at Home Depot Center settling in with a warm cup of joe waiting for the start of Atlas-San Luis. Scott French ditched me so I've got to write both match reports and match features for tonight's doubleheader... okay, well, truth be told Scott is in Florida for the combine and is spending the week out on the East Coast for the combine and draft.

So while we wait for the start of the doubleheader, which sold out well before the start of today's games, I'm thinking that we will be hard pressed to see a matchup quite like America-Cruz Azul here at Home Depot Center this year. Combined America and Cruz Azul have won 18 domestic titles, count on World Cup stars past, present and future and each has legions of supporters.

It's not a friendly as well, which makes the game much more interesting. Hopefully it lives up to the hype.

LB, surely you jest. Neither Cruz Azul or Club America look like they care much about this result. Just a Saturday night kick about.
