The Universidad Nacional boss Andres Lillini will be thankful to have no fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this game with a fully healthy group to pick from.

It looks as if Pumas will possibly use the 4-4-2 formation for the game with Julio González, Pablo Bennevendo, A. Ortiz Martínez, Nicolas Freire, Adrian Aldrete, Eduardo Salvio, Daniel Alves, César Huerta, José Caicedo, Juan Ignacio Dinenno and Gustavo Del Prete.

📰 Team News: Cruz Azul

Cruz Azul manager Diego Aguirre has some current player fitness concerns. Alejandro Mayorga (Nose surgery) and Juan Escobar (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be making appearances.

We’re of the thinking that La Máquina Azul appear most likely to utilise a 4-2-3-1 formation with a starting lineup of J. de Jesus, Ignacio Rivero, J. Cesar Dominguez, Ramiro Funes Mori, R. Guerrero Ramirez, Erik Lira, Angel Romero, Uriel Antuna, Gonzalo Carneiro, Carlos Rodriguez and Rodrigo Huescas.

🔮 Prediction

Looking at these two teams, we feel that Cruz Azul will need to put in a solid display to score against this Universidad Nacional lineup who we reckon will do enough to score at the other end and edge ahead.

We’re therefore seeing a very even match with a 1-0 win for Universidad Nacional at the conclusion of the game.

Should be a close one.
