Team News: Pachuca
Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just one fitness concern for the Pachuca manager Guillermo Almada to be concerned with from an otherwise complete squad. Javier López (Fitness) won’t play.
It seems likely that Los Tuzos may well use the 4-3-3 system in the match with Oscar Ustari, Kevin Alvarez, Gustavo Cabral, Miguel Tapias, Mauricio Isais, Erick Sanchez, Luis Chavez, Victor Guzman, Aviles Hurtado, Nicolas Ibanez and Romario Ibarra.
Team News: Tigres
Owing to a completely injury-free group available to choose from, the Tigres manager Miguel Herrera has no fitness worries whatsoever coming into this match.
We are inclined to think that Los Tigres will likely make use of a 4-3-3 lineup, choosing Nahuel Guzman, Javier Aquino, Igor Lichnovsky, Diego Reyes, Jesus Angulo, Rafael Carioca, Francisco Cordova, Guido Pizarro, Raymundo Fulgencio, Andre-Pierre Gignac and Nicolas Lopez.
We’re thinking that Tigres de la UANL should have enough to find the net against this Pachuca side, although that realistically won’t be enough to prevent defeat.
We are anticipating a 2-1 winning margin for Pachuca by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. Let’s see what happens here.
