THE TEAM NEWS

AMERICA

  • America are coming off a 3-3 draw at Pumas UNAM, and now they have extended their winless streak to two games. They have also been quite inconsistent when playing at home, as they have gone W2, L2 in four outings at the Estadio Azteca in the Clausura.
  • Sebastian Caceres is dealing with a knock and he’s expected to miss a few games at least, while Nicolas Castillo and Nicolas Benedetti are out for the remainder of the Clausura. Alex Renato Ibarra is dealing with law issues and won’t be considered for matches until further notice.

Expected starting XI: Guillermo Ochoa; Paul Aguilar, Bruno Valdez, Emanuel Aguilera, Luis Fernando Fuentes; Sebastian Cordova, Fernando Gonzalez, Richard Sanchez; Leo Suarez, Henry Martin, Federico Vinas

CRUZ AZUL

  • Cruz Azul have been the better side of the entire Clausura and they currently sit at the top of the standings entering Week 10 with 19 points. They are on a five-game winning streak and a seven-game undefeated streak.
  • Gerardo Flores, Yoshimar Yotun and Pablo Aguilar will all miss the remainder of the Clausura campaign, although only Aguilar can be considered a regular starter. Milton Caraglio and Igor Lichnovsky are both expected to be game-time decisions for the coaching staff.

Expected starting XI: Jose de Jesus Corona; Julio Cesar Dominguez, Juan Escobar, Luis Romo, Adrian Aldrete; Rafael Miranda Baca; Elias Hernandez, Alex Stik Castro, Roberto Alvarado, Orbelin Pineda; Jonathan Rodriguez

THE PREDICTION

This is one of the biggest matches in the Liga MX calendar, as America and Cruz Azul are two of the most popular teams in the competition. This will likely end up being a tight encounter but America have been rather inconsistent at home while Cruz Azul are in the midst of an impressive undefeated streak after a slow start to the season. Cruz Azul should be able to win this rather easily.
