Team News: CD Guadalajara
CD Guadalajara boss Víctor Vucetich has a full complement, with no fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this match with a completely injury-free squad available to select from.
Team News: Atlas
From a largely healthy squad, there’s just a single fitness worry for the Atlas gaffer Diego Cocca to be concerned about. Edgar Zaldívar (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be playing here.
We think that Atlas will have a tough ask to hit the back of the net against this CD Guadalajara side who we reckon will win and very possibly keep a clean sheet.
That’s why our selection here is for a very competitive encounter with a 1-0 victory for CD Guadalajara at the end of this game.
Let’s see how it plays out.
