Due to a completely injury-free group to choose from, the Puebla boss Ricardo Carbajal does not have any fitness worries at all coming into this game.
We are inclined to think that Los Camoteros seem most likely to utilise a 4-4-2 system, giving starts to J. Iván Rodríguez, Gustavo Ferrareis, Sebastián Olmedo, Gaston Silva, Brayan Angulo, Kevin Velasco, Diego De Buen, Pablo Gonzalez, D. Álvarez López, Martín Barragán and G. Martinez Ayala.
We’re inclined to think that Puebla will likely create enough chances to score against this Querétaro FC team, but it is unlikely to prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We can see a 2-1 advantage for Querétaro FC at the end of this one. There looks to be little in this one.
