Team News: Toluca
The Toluca manager Ignacio Ambriz has no fitness worries at all before this match with a completely healthy group available for selection.
Team News: León
Thanks to a mainly available group of players, there’s only a single fitness problem for the León manager Nicolás Larcamón to be concerned with. Byron Castillo (Ankle Injury) won’t be playing here.
We’ve got the feeling that León may find it difficult to be putting a goal past this Toluca lineup who will likely emerge victorious.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a narrow 1-0 advantage for Toluca after 90 minutes.
Should be an interesting one.
