Team News: León
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just one fitness concern for the León manager Renato Paiva to contend with thanks to an almost full-strength group. David Ramírez (Pubitis) won’t play.
We are thinking that Los Esmeraldas will probably opt for a 4-3-3 formation for the game with Rodolfo Cota, Osvaldo Rodríguez, Paul Bellón, J. Stiven Barreiro, Luis Cervantes, José Rodríguez, Luis Arturo Montes, Lucas Di Yorio, Víctor Dávila, Joel Campbell and José Alvarado.
Team News: Querétaro FC
Due to a completely healthy group available to select from, the Querétaro FC boss Mauro Gerk doesn’t have any fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this match.
We’re of the thinking that Gallos Blancos seem most likely to elect for a 4-4-2 system, choosing Washington Aguerre, Omar Israel Mendoza, Kevin Balanta, Jordan Silva, Gabriel Rojas, Pablo Barrera, Mario Osuna, Rodrigo Lopez, Leonardo Sequeira, A. B. Sepulveda and Ettson Ayon.
In this game, Querétaro FC will surely be able to score a goal against this León lineup, however that is unlikely to be as many as they will have scored against them.
We’re expecting a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 winning margin for León at the end of the 90 minutes. Should be an interesting one.
