ℹ️ Team News: Cruz Azul

The Cruz Azul boss Raúl Gutiérrez will be happy not to have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this match with a fully healthy group ready to go.

We are thinking that La Máquina Azul may well opt for a 5-3-2 system for this game, handing starts to Jose de Jesus Corona, Ramiro Funes Mori, J. Cesar Dominguez, Juan Escobar, Carlos Rodriguez, C. Rodolfo Rotondi, Augusto Lotti, Erik Lira, Ignacio Rivero, Uriel Antuna and Ramiro Carrera.

ℹ️ Team News: Universidad Nacional

With a completely injury-free squad ready to go, the Universidad Nacional manager Rafael Puente Jr. has zero fitness concerns to report ahead of this game.

We are inclined to think that Pumas could decide to make use of a 5-3-2 lineup, going with Sebastian Sosa, Pablo Bennevendo, Nicolas Freire, Pablo Monroy, Jonathan Sanchez, Jesus Molina, Eduardo Salvio, Higor Meritao, Ulises Rivas, Juan Dinenno and Diogo.

🔮 Prediction

For this match, we think that Universidad Nacional should be able to find the back of the net against this Cruz Azul side, although it may not quite be as many as the goals that they could concede.

Our selection here is for a narrow 2-1 winning score for Cruz Azul when all is said and done. Let’s wait and see how it plays out.
