In all likelihood, Chivas will possibly use a 3-2-3-2 system for the game, utilising Miguel Ponce Jimenez, Luis Olivas, Gilberto Sepulveda, Jesus Orozco, Alan Mozo, Carlos Cisneros, S. Perez-Bouquet, Fernando Gonzalez, Fernando Beltran, Roberto Alvarado and Ernesto Vega.
Team News: Pachuca
Thanks to a largely full-strength group, there is only the one fitness problem for the Pachuca gaffer Guillermo Almada to be concerned with. Javier López (Fitness) won’t be in action.
There’s a good chance that Los Tuzos appear most likely to make use of a 4-3-3 lineup, giving starts to Oscar Ustari, Kevin Alvarez, Gustavo Cabral, Oscar Murillo, Mauricio Isais, Erick Sanchez, Luis Chavez, Victor Guzman, Aviles Hurtado, Nicolas Ibanez and Jesus Hernandez.
Our assessment is that Pachuca and CD Guadalajara should both be able to find the back of the net here although it’s difficult to select a clear winner.
A draw looks like a realistic possibility, but we’ll see what happens. We’re therefore seeing a very close game with a 1-1 score at the conclusion of the game.
