Team News: Club América
Club América boss Miguel Herrera does not have any fitness concerns at all ahead of this clash owing to a fully healthy group to choose from.
In our view, Las Águilas will probably employ a 4-4-2 formation for this game featuring Guillermo Ochoa, Ramón Juárez, Víctor Emanuel Aguilera, Jorge Sánchez, Luis Fernando Fuentes, Richard Sánchez, Jesus Alonso Escoboza, Sebastián Córdova, Fernando Rubén González, Federico Viñas and Henry Martín.
Team News: Toluca
Due to a fully injury-free group to pick from, Toluca boss José de la Torre does not have any fitness concerns at all before this clash.
There’s a good chance that Los Diablos Rojos seem most likely to begin the game with a 4-4-2 lineup, giving starts to Luis García, Raúl López, Adrián Mora, Diego González Hernández, Brandon Sartiaguin, Rubens Sambueza, William Da Silva, Javier Güemez, Alan Medina, Enrique Triverio and Alexis Pedro Canelo.
For this match, we think that Toluca are likely to score a goal against this Club América team, however that is unlikely to be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We reckon that it will be a very close game with a 2-1 winning score for Club América after 90 minutes. It should be a decent one.
