THE TEAM NEWS

ATLETICO SAN LUIS

  • San Luis enter this game riding a two-game winning streak following a 1-0 away win at Queretaro, and they are in sixth place of the league standings with 12 points. For what it's worth, they have lost just once in their last five contests (W2, D2, L1).
  • Anderson Julio was listed as doubtful prior to last week’s match, but he came off the bench and looked healthy. Matias Catalan, however, should be listed as questionable after picking up a knock the last time out.

Expected starting XI: Carlos Rodriguez; Matias Catalan (Mario Alvarez), Luis Fernando Leon, Dionicio Escalante, Luis Ricardo Reyes; Javier Cortes, Luis Felipe Gallegos, Camilo Mayada; German Berterame, Nicolas Ibanez, Diego Hernandez Jimenez

JUAREZ

  • Bravos de Juarez are coming off a 2-1 home loss to Santos Laguna and that result extended their winless streak to two games (D1, L1). They have still looked like one of the best sides in the Clausura, however, and sit in seventh place of the standings with 11 points.
  • Jonathan Lacerda has already missed several games in a row and he’s not expected to be available in this match. The same goes for striker Diego Rolan, who has not played in each of Juarez’s last two matches.

Expected starting XI: Ivan Vazquez; Israel Jimenez, Maximiliano Olivera, Bruno Romo, Gustavo Velazquez; Jose Esquivel, Jefferson Intriago, Martin Rabunal; Angelo Sagal, Dario Lezcano, Mauro Fernandez

THE PREDICTION

Both teams have lost just once in their last five games but Juarez have a stronger record over that span compared to San Luis, with three wins to San Luis' two. Juarez have a stronger attacking unit with 14 goals scored, the third-highest mark in the Clausura, while San Luis have a stronger defence with only nine goals conceded. It remains to be seen which side will come out on top here, but things are very even on paper. Considering that scenario, the match could easily end in a draw.
