With América’s passage to the Clausura semi-finals secured, thoughts now turn to treating their walking wounded.

The Azulcrema beat Puebla 3-2 on at the Estadio Azteca on Saturday, but the 4-3 aggregate scoreline belied how comfortable an occasion it was for the hosts.

Interim manager Fernando Ortiz had his charges undergo a recovery session on Sunday morning, but neither Richard Sánchez or Federico Viñas were involved.

Midfielder Sánchez was not in the matchday squad the previous day, while striker Viñas was an unused substitute.

ESPN has reported that both players will be assessed on Monday ahead of the first leg of their last-four clash in midweek.

Las Águilas have to wait until the remaining quarter-finals are completed on Sunday night before they learn who their next opponents will be.
