Team News: Puebla
The Puebla boss Nicolás Larcamón will be thankful to have no fitness concerns to speak of coming into this clash thanks to a completely healthy squad to pick from.
It seems likely that Los Camoteros could make use of the 5-3-2 system for this game, beginning the first half with Anthony Silva, Gustavo Ferrareis, Emanuel Gularte, Israel Reyes, Juan Pablo Segovia, Maximiliano Araujo, Diego De Buen, George Corral, Pablo Parra, Guillermo Martinez and Angel Robles.
Team News: Club América
Owing to a completely healthy group available to choose from, the Club América manager Santiago Solari has no fitness worries at all ahead of this clash.
It’s our belief that Las Águilas appear most likely to play in a 4-2-3-1 system, giving starts to Guillermo Ochoa, Jorge Sanchez, Sebastian Caceres, Jordan Silva, Luis Fuentes, Pedro Aquino, Antonio Lopez, Roger Martinez, Alvaro Fidalgo, Salvador Reyes and Henry Martin.
We’re of the opinion that Puebla will need to apply a lot of pressure to register a score against this Club América side who we think might score & stay on top.
We’re therefore predicting a narrow 0-1 advantage for Club América at the end of this game.
Will be interesting to see how this one goes.
