Team News: CD Guadalajara
Due to a fully injury-free squad to pick from, CD Guadalajara boss Víctor Vucetich doesn’t have any fitness worries to report coming into this game.
We reckon that Chivas could decide to play in a 4-4-2 formation, going with José Antonio Rodriguez, Jesús Sánchez, Hiram Mier, Miguel Ponce, Gilberto Sepúlveda, Jesús Angulo, Jesus Molina, Fernando Beltrán, Isaac Brizuela, Uriel Antuna and José Juan Macías.
Our assessment is that Tigres look set to create the chances to score more than once when they meet CD Guadalajara, who may well find it hard finding the net themselves.
We can therefore see a decent 2-0 win for Tigres when all’s said and done.
