Another Mexican entry in the South America’s top club competition, Club America, could move close to passage to the knockout round with a win at Fluminense in Group 3 on Wednesday (live on Fox Deportes, 9 pm ET). In their first clash, Club America won, 1-0, at Azteca Stadium.

Marc Serber figures this could be the most intriguing game of the week. Fluminense has struggled, but Argentine Dario Conca is a midfield maestro of real creativity and vision. He needs to connect with Rafael Moura (scorer of both goals for Fluminense in the tournament so far).
