THE TEAM NEWS

CLUB AMERICA

  • Club America have played only two Liga MX matches thus far and are undefeated, registering one win, one draw and yet to concede. They are coming off a stalemate against Tijuana and enter this contest on a three-game winning run at Estadio Azteca.
  • Nicolas Benedetti and Federico Vinas have been ruled out since they are on international duty with Colombia and Uruguay, respectively. Nicolas Castillo underwent surgery and will be out for an indefinite period. Alex Renato Ibarra remains sidelined due to a hamstring problem.

Expected starting XI: Guillermo Ochoa; Paul Aguilar, Bruno Valdez, Oscar Ortega, Emanuel Aguilera, Jorge Eduardo Sanchez; Jesus Escoboza, Fernando Gonzalez, Richard Sanchez; Giovani dos Santos;

JUAREZ

  • Juarez have registered back-to-back wins in all competitions, and they have scored thrice in both contests, but those are their only wins over their past seven matches in all competitions. Plus, Bravos are on a four-game winless streak on the road in all competitions while conceding 12 times over that span.
  • Gael Sandoval will be suspended here, but he wasn’t expected to start even if he was available. Defender Jonathan Lacerda has been dealing with an injury and he should be a game-time decision. Bruno Romo could start in case Lacerda is not available.

Expected starting XI: Ivan Vazquez; Luis Lopez, Bruno Romo, Gustavo Velazquez, Israel Jimenez; Jose Esquivel, Jefferson Intriago; Mauro Fernandez; Diego Rolan, Dario Lezcano, Flavio Santos

THE PREDICTION

Club America might be considerably depleted ahead of this contest, and will be missing several key contributors on offense, but they should be heavy favourites ahead of this contest. Bravos are arguably on their best stretch of form this season thanks to back-to-back wins, but they have struggled considerably of late and have also experienced defensive problems when playing on the road. America should be able to secure the win here, extending their winning run at Estadio Azteca to four games.
