Gustavo Matosas’ side pulled itself closer to a Liguilla spot with a 3-1 win over Toluca at the Estadio Azteca on Saturday.
America came into this game after successfully earning their sixth CONCACAF title against the Montreal Impact during the midweek, and started this game brightly when Pablo Aguilar got the hosts flying with a third minute header to open the scoring.
In the second-half, Wilder Guisao equalized from the penalty spot for Toluca before Osvaldo Martinez regained Las Aguilas the lead with his own penalty kick.
In the 82nd minute, a Richard Ortiz own goal set America on their way to their seventh victory of the season and a step closer to a top-eight finish with one game remaining in the season.
America’s last game will be against Atlas at the Estadio Jalico, while Toluca, who temporarily remain in a Liguilla position, will host Tigres.
