Amrica will be Real Madrid‘s opponent this Tuesday at Oracle Park in San Francisco, California in a friendly game that for those who don’t follow Liga MX very much could mean an opponent of not too much potential for the maximum winner in the history of the UEFA Champions League and LaLiga in Spain.
However, the tradition and achievements of the Aguilas in both Liga MX and the Concacaf Champions League make the comparison, each at their own level, inevitable due to the winning DNA of both institutions in different parts of the world.
Top winners in their countries and confederations
In terms of their respective local leagues, both teams lead in championships, although it is important to say that the dominance of those from the Spanish capital is greater, as Real Madrid has 35 championships to 26 of its closest rival, FC Barcelona, while Amrica has 13 league championships (in the professional era), while Chivas de Guadalajara follows with 12.
Real Madrid just won the UEFA Champions League for the 14th time, doubling the second place, A.C. Milan with seven trophies of the highest club competition, as far as the Concacaf Champions League is concerned, America is the boss with seven titles, followed by the six of Cruz Azul, another Liga MX team.
The clubs with the most pressure to win every time
However, perhaps it is not the titles that most closely link these two institutions, but rather the media following, which, win or lose, have these teams as the generators of the highest television ratings and internet visits.
That is why the pressure to win for Real Madrid and Amrica is enormous in any tournament they play in their respective environments and that demand is surely what most links these two teams, loved and hated, but never ignored in Spain and Mexico, respectively.
