The final that everyone in Mexico was hoping for is here as Club America and Cruz Azul start a fierce duel at the Estadio Azteca that will last for at least 180 minutes. There is no clear winner in this matchup and there is no home-field advantage as both teams call the Estadio Azteca home.

Club America finished second in the Liga MX 2018 Apertura just behind Cruz Azul on the final league table. Los Azulcremas had a hard-fought 5-4 win on aggregate against Toluca in the quarterfinals and demolished Pumas UNAM by an aggregate score of 7-2 in the semifinal stage.

Guido Rodriguez may be the x-factor for Club America in the midfield and the backline is also a strong component of the team with Bruno Valdez and Emanuel Aguilera. Including the playoffs, Aguilera and Valdez have combined for a total of 12 goals scored, a number that most top strikers cannot even get to in Mexico.

Cruz Azul finished first in the Liga MX 2018 Apertura and also finished with the best defense in the league with just 13 goals conceded. La Maquina breezed past Queretaro in the quarterfinals, but tied 1-1 against Monterrey in the semifinals with Cruz Azul’s first-place finish being the decisive factor.

Pedro Caixinha also has a solid midfield led by Ivan Marcone along with a backline led by Pablo Aguilar and also has a much more consistent offense than Club America. Edgar Mendez, Roberto Alvarado, Elias Hernandez and Milton Caraglio have all been solid this season and should be able to challenge Agustin Marchesin and America’s backline.

Club America vs Cruz Azul Prediction

There are no favorites heading into this encounter, but Club America undeniably has the momentum after dismantling Pumas UNAM. FutnSoccer predicts an exciting 2-2 draw in the first-leg of the series at the Estadio Azteca that should prove to be a very enticing duel.

Why the Chargers can cover the spread

Los Angeles rides a four-game winning streak into this contest after holding off Cincinnati on Sunday 26-21. The Chargers drove their first two possessions of the game 75 yards to touchdowns, led 17-12 at the half, let the Bengals creep to within 23-21 with just under two minutes to go but foiled a two-point conversion, then added a field goal and hung on from there.

For the day, Los Angeles only came up with 288 yards of total offense but only allowed 295. The Chargers also got a four-for-four performance on field goals from kicker Michael Badgley, including a 59-yarder.

Los Angles has now out-gained eight of its last 10 opponents, going 6-4 ATS at online sports betting sites over that span. At 10-3 overall, the Chargers now trail the Chiefs by one game not only in the AFC West but in the battle for the best record in the AFC.

Why the Chiefs can cover the spread

Kansas City carries a two-game winning streak into this contest, after outlasting Baltimore on Sunday 27-24 in overtime. The Chiefs drove their second possession of the game 75 yards to a touchdown, led 17-10 at the half, fell down 24-17 late but drove 75 yards to a touchdown with just under a minute to go to force OT. Kansas City then drove the first possession of extra time 58 yards to a field goal, then won it with a defensive stop.

For the day, the Chiefs racked up 441 yards of total offense on the No. 1 defense in the league and held the Ravens to 321 yards. Kansas City has now out-gained its last five opponents, and out-rushed four of its last five foes.

At 11-2 overall the Chiefs can clinch the AFC West with a victory Thursday night. Kansas City also now leads New England and Houston by two games in the battle for the best record in the AFC.

Smart betting pick

The Chiefs won the first matchup between these teams this season by 10 points, but Los Angeles out-gained Kansas City that day by almost 200 yards, and one of the Chiefs touchdowns came on a 91-yard punt return.

As for Thursday night, Kansas City gets the checkmark on offense, but the Chargers get the checkmark on defense. And the better defense is usually the better bet. The smart money here at online betting sites likes Los Angeles.

NFL betting trends

The total has gone under in three of the Chargers’ last four games on the road vs. the Chiefs.

The total has gone under in nine of the Chiefs’ last 11 games at home.

The Chargers are 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 games vs. their division on the road.

New Zealand Rugby Awards 2018

New Zealand Rugby stars unite for the annual New Zealand Rugby Awards

All the action from the 2018 New Zealand Rugby Awards.

And that concludes our coverage of this year’s awards. Thanks for joining us, good night.

2018 New Zealand Rugby Awards Live Free

10.38pm: It’s the Black Ferns Sevens!

They’ve done what only Ireland and the Springboks (and almost England) could this season – they’ve beaten the All Blacks!

ADVERTISEMENT

10.26pm: The penultimate award of the evening, the National Team of the Year is awarded to…

The Crusaders – beating Auckland and Thames Valley.

– the first woman to do so! She beats out Brodie Retallick, Richie Mo’unga and Codie Taylor for the top gang – smashing the glass ceiling.

10.14pm: The New Zealand Rugby Women’s Player of the Year is… Kendra Cocksedge! A second award of the night for Cocksedge, who of course is also up for the main honour as Kelvin R Tremain Memorial Player of the Year, which is up next.

10.05pm: And it had to be – the Women’s World Sevens Player of the Year is now also the Black Ferns Sevens Player of the Year – it’s Michaela Blyde.

We’re now only minutes away from the start of the awards. I’m told the Fan’s Try of the Year is the first category up.

7.05pm: Hansen stays mum

Steve Hansen walked down the red carpet, but dodged the media ahead of his big announcement – we will know tomorrow whether he is staying on as All Blacks head coach after the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

6.43pm: Taking it upstairs

That’s about the last of the arrivals, as everyone now heads upstairs.

6.34pm: Not all about rugby…

Canoeing star Lisa Carrington is among the local stars invited to the awards. She seems as popular with the other attendees as she was with the Glen Eden intermediate students.

6.30pm: Red carpet rush

It seems the players might have arranged to arrive at the same time. Codie Taylor, Sam Whitelock, Kendra Cocksedge, Brodie Retallick, and Richie Mo’unga make their way along the red carpet within minutes of each other.

6.25pm: The man of the moment

Sir Michael Jones is among the stars in attendance this evening, looking cool as ice in a classic black suit.

While the likes of Steve Tew and Ian Foster make their way in quickly, stopping for photos on the red carpet along the way, Steve Hansen stops at the beginning of the long line of youngsters asking for a moment of his time.

Of course he obliges, slowly making his way along and other attendees sneak along behind him.

6.18pm: Welcome, Charlotte Rose McCaw

Two stars who won’t be at tonight’s awards are Richie and Gemma McCaw.

They’ve just announced the arival of their baby, Charlotte Rose.

6pm: Stars arrive

A contingent of around 30 students from Glen Eden Intermediate line the entrance of the Sky City conventions centre awaiting the arrival of their rugby heroes.

While they wait for the players to arrive, the group tries to get high fives from anyone and everyone who walks past. Loud boos echoing through the corridor identify those unwilling to oblige.

5.45pm: Here are the nominees for all the big awards
