THE TEAM NEWS

GUADALAJARA

  • Guadalajara seem to be on the rise during the last few weeks, as their 2-1 win in the Clasico Tapatio against Atlas extended their winning run to three games. They have looked decent at home as well, having lost just one of four matches thus far (W2, D1, L1).
  • Forward Ernesto Alexis Vega has been suspended for this match due to a red card. However, the rest of the squad should be fit and available.

Expected starting XI: Jose Antonio Rodriguez; Gilberto Sepulveda, Miguel Ponce, Hiram Mier, Jesus Sanchez Garcia; Fernando Beltran, Jesus Molina; Isaac Brizuela, Carlos Uriel Antuna, Ronaldo Cisneros; Jose Juan Macias

MONTERREY

  • Rayados’ disappointing season continued last week, as they settled for a 2-2 draw against Atletico San Luis. They remain the only winless team in the Clausura campaign and sit at the bottom of the standings with just four points out of nine games (D4, L5).
  • Daniel Parra has been suspended after receiving a red card last week, while Lionel Jesus Vangioni remains sidelined due to a knee problem. Aviles Hurtado and Maximiliano Meza are also dealing with injuries, and both players will be out as well.

Expected starting XI: Marcelo Barovero; Stefan Medina, Cesar Montes, Nicolas Sanchez, Jose Maria Basanta; Miguel Layun, Matias Kranevitter, Carlos Rodriguez, Jesus Gallardo; Ake Arnaud Loba, Rogelio Funes Mori

THE PREDICTION

Guadalajara are trending in the right direction with three straight wins and they keep climbing in the standings on a weekly basis. Rayados, on the other hand, have been the league’s biggest disappointment after winning the Apertura title only a few months ago. Monterrey are winless and have shown their worst face on the road, losing three of four games while averaging 2.0 goals conceded per game. The hosts should be able to win here.
