Team News: Pachuca
Pachuca boss Paulo Pezzolano has no fitness worries whatsoever coming into this game thanks to a fully injury-free squad to pick from.
In all likelihood, Los Tuzos will possibly make use of the 4-4-2 formation this time and select Oscar Ustari, Kevin Alvarez, Gustavo Cabral, Oscar Murillo, Érick Aguirre, Edgar Padro, Viktor Sosa, Jorge Hernandez, Luis Chavez, Víctor Dávila and Roberto de la Rosa.
Team News: León
Due to a fully injury-free group ready to go, León manager Ignacio Ambriz doesn’t have any fitness worries whatsoever coming into this clash.
We’re of the thinking that Los Esmeraldas seem most likely to play in a 4-5-1 system, starting Rodolfo Cota, Yairo Moreno, William Tesillo, Jaine Barreiro, Gil Burón, José Rodríguez, Luis Arturo Montes, Jean Meneses, Ángel Mena, Emmanuel Gigliotti and Joel Campbell.
In our opinion, León and Pachuca may well both score, with little between these two teams.
A draw is a real possibility, as we are expecting there to be little between them. That’s why our selection here is for a tight encounter with a score draw when all is said and done.
