The Eagles have met Tigres four times in finals, two were in the League, the first in the 2014 Apertura in which those of Coapa were crowned and the second in the 2016 Apertura in which those of the UANL won, in the of the 2016 Concachampions in which America won and in the 1975-1976 Cup that the New Leonese team won.
Thus, the team led by Santiago Solari will face Rayados in the final of the Concachampions, seeking to collect that pending account and add another crown to their record.
