THE TEAM NEWS

MORELIA

  • Monarcas Morelia are coming off a 2-1 away win at Necaxa and are riding a good run of form, as they have taken points in four of their last five games in league play (W3, D1, L1). They have struggled with consistency at home, however, posting a D1, L3 mark in four home Clausura matches.
  • Star playmaker Jorge Valdivia has been listed as questionable due to a leg problem, but he has missed the team’s last three games so his chances of playing here should be slim. Cesar Huerta is suspended, while Ray Sandoval will miss the remainder of the season due to an ACL injury.

Expected starting XI: Luis Angel Malagon; Carlos Vargas, Gonzalo Jara, Jose Enrique Ortiz, Sebastian Vegas; Rodrigo Millar, Aldo Rocha; Luis Angel Mendoza, Lucas Villafanez, Martin Rodriguez; Fernando Aristeguieta

QUERETARO

  • Queretaro are coming off a 1-1 home draw against Toluca, and that result extended their winless streak to three matches (D2, L1). They have not looked very good of late after a strong start to the season, as they have won just once in their last five league outings (W1, D2, L2).
  • Alexis Perez remains ruled out due to a long-term injury, and there is no clarity on when he will be able to return to action. Jeison Lucumi is doubtful due to an injury sustained last week, and he will be a game-time decision for the coaching staff.

Expected starting XI: Gil Alcala; Jaime Gomez, Julian Velazquez, Jorge Aguilar, Areli Hernandez; Clifford Aboagye, Michael Perez, Marcel Alejandro Ruiz, Fabian Castillo; Ariel Nahuelpan, Jeison Lucumi (Enrique Triverio)

THE PREDICTION

Monarcas Morelia might be riding a good run of form based on their recent results, but their home form has been awful and they currently rank as the worst home side in the entire Torneo Clausura. Queretaro have not fared much better during the last few weeks, but they have been the better side of the two during the entire season while also looking at their best on the road, where they have earned three wins in their five away outings thus far (W3, D1, L1) while going undefeated in the last four. The home/away splits are telling, and they should be enough reason to list Queretaro as favourites here.
