ℹ️ Team News: Cruz Azul

There is just one fitness concern for the Cruz Azul manager Juan Reynoso to be concerned about from of an almost fully healthy group. Carlos Rodríguez (Fissure of the fibula) is sidelined.

We think that La Máquina Azul could line up in a 5-3-2 formation this time, handing starts to Sebastián Jurado, Juan Escobar, J. Cesar Dominguez, Pablo Aguilar, Luis Abram, Adrian Aldrete, Ignacio Rivero, Erik Lira, Angel Romero, Iván Morales and Uriel Antuna.

📋 Team News: Necaxa

Due to a fully injury-free group to choose from, the Necaxa manager Jaime Lozano has no fitness concerns at all coming into this game.

It’s our belief that Lightning Bolts appear most likely to make use of a 5-3-2 formation by sending out Luis Malagón, J. Alonso Escoboza, Fernando Meza, Agustín Oliveros, F. Rubén González, Alexis Peña, Brian García, Fernando Madrigal, Dieter Villalpando, Rodrigo Aguirre and Milton Giménez.

🧠 Prediction

Our assessment is that Necaxa must be fancied to find the net against this Cruz Azul team, although that might not be enough to avoid defeat.

We’re tipping a 2-1 advantage for Cruz Azul at the end of the match. Could easily see this go either way.

Our expert partners are tipping over 1.5 goals for this match. Check out their VIP predictions here.
