Chivas and Pachuca have only faced each other four times, but two of those matches were the most important ones in Chivas Femenil’s history: the first-ever Liga MX Femenil final in 2017. Chivas were able to overcome a 2-0 loss in the first leg to lift their only title, with a 3-0 win at Estadio Akron. Since Chivas and Pachuca were on different groups while the league used the format, it took two years for them to face each other again, and their two most recent meetings have been split evenly, with an away win for each team.
While both teams have been consistently in the top 8 this season, Chivas are currently ranked higher (4th) than Pachuca (7th). Still, Pachuca have improved since the return of their top goalscorer Viridiana Salazar, who has been regaining her best form, scoring a landmark 50th career goal on matchweek 5 against Toluca.
Since this could be a potential Liguilla matchup, both teams will try to be at their best, as they will look to test their strengths, and to earn points that can help their seeding for the knockout rounds. This is going to be a good chance for Chivas to show what they can do against one of the strongest teams in the league, and a win would provide a good confidence boost, both for the players, and for coach Edgar Mejía. Interestingly enough, Chivas and Pachuca have never drawn when facing each other. Chivas have five goals scored and four goals conceded, which, combined with their current good form, should give them a slight edge and make them favorites to win.
