THE TEAM NEWS

CLUB AMERICA

  • Club America did not play in the first week of the Torneo Clausura since they participated in the Apertura Finals during the final days of December. This will be their first match of 2020 and they enter here after posting a W6, D4, L2 mark at home in the Apertura - including playoffs.
  • Las Aguilas do not feature any injury concerns ahead of this contest. They enter this game with a huge void in midfield, however, as Guido Rodriguez left the team earlier this week to join Real Betis in La Liga.

Expected starting XI: Guillermo Ochoa; Paul Aguilar, Bruno Valdez, Victor Aguilera, Jorge Sanchez; Alex Renato Ibarra, Richard Sanchez, Fernando Gonzalez, Federico Vinas; Roger Martinez, Henry Martin

TIGRES UANL

  • Tigres UANL started their Clausura campaign with a disappointing 0-0 home draw against Atletico San Luis, and this will be their first away contest of 2020. They delivered a W5, D4, L1 mark on the road during the Apertura campaign including playoffs.
  • Tigres UANL are not going to be at full strength ahead of this match since they will deal with two absentees. These are defender Jose Francisco Torres and forward Julian Quinones. Both have been out for quite a while, though, so their absences shouldn’t play a role in this one.

Expected starting XI: Nahuel Guzman; Luis Rodriguez, Hugo Ayala, Diego Reyes, Jorge Torres Nilo; Rafael Carioca, Guido Pizarro; Javier Aquino, Eduardo Vargas, Nicolas Lopez; Andre-Pierre Gignac

THE PREDICTION

Both teams will debut in the current Clausura campaign and if we take their most recent play-off matches into account, this could end up being another high-scoring affair. Three of the last four games between these two clubs have seen over 2.5 goals in total, and that should continue here. The game could go either way, but all signs point towards a high-scoring contest.
