“For us our Classic is against Guadalajara, maybe for others its Classic is against America. For some canteranos it is because of the proximity and that rivalry exists, either when we played here (in Coapa), Cantera, in CU, in Cancha one or two. There was that rivalry ”

However, Ochoa said that it is still a duel that are quite important, and often represents a determining factor for the careers of some players, due to all the expectation that is generated around the match.

“To young and non-young people, tell them that this game can mark their careers and there are many eyes. People are on the lookout and I think it is a nice opportunity to raise their hands and those who have that opportunity will play a game, so do it ”
