Queretaro and Club America kick off the new Mexican Liga MX season when they go toe-to-toe at the Estadio Corregidora on Friday.

Both sides had contrasting campaigns last season and will be aiming to open the new season on a good note.

Queretaro endured a horrid campaign in the just concluded 2020-21 Mexican Primera Division.

With 13 points from 17 games, they finished 17th in the league table, beating only Atlético de San Luis who finished last with 11 points.

Their poor run of results continued into the post-season, where they lost 5-0 to Santos Laguna in the playoffs.

This was followed by a 2-2 draw with Pumas UNAM, when both sides faced off in a friendly fixture.

Hector Altamirano’s men are currently on a three-game winless run, with their last victory coming back in April when they claimed a narrow 1-0 win over Juarez FC.

In stark contrast, Club America were brilliant domestically last season. With nine wins and five draws, they finished third in the league, level on 32 points with second-placed Pumas UNAM.

However, Santiago Solari’s side lost out on away goals to Pachuca in the quarter-finals of the playoffs as both sides played out a 5-5 aggregated draw.

This was followed by successive victories over Santos Laguna, Atlas and Tigres Unal in the club friendly games.

Club America will now aim to maintain this fine form and take it into the start of the 2021 Primeira Division.
