The Atlético San Luis boss Gustavo Leal has no fitness concerns whatsoever before this match with a fully healthy squad to choose from.
It seems likely that Rojiblancos will possibly employ a 4-2-3-1 formation this time with Diego Urtiaga, Ricardo Chávez, Unai Bilbao, J. Cesar Dominguez, Juan Manuel Sanabria, Rodrigo Dourado, Javier Güemez, Jhon Murillo, Dieter Villalpando, Mateo Klimowicz and Léo Bonatini.
