THE TEAM NEWS

NECAXA

  • Necaxa had to come from behind but they registered a 3-2 away win at Toluca in their season opener last week. This will be their first home match of the Clausura but they posted a less-than-ideal W3, D4, L2 record at Estadio Victoria during the 2019 Torneo Apertura. Counting regular season games only, Necaxa are winless in their last four home matches (D2, L2).
  • Necaxa should be quite close to full strength ahead of this game. Their lone absentee will be centre-back Ventura Alvarado who is yet to play during the current Clausura campaign.

Expected starting XI: Hugo Gonzalez; Jairo Gonzalez, Rodrigo Noya, Jose Doldan; Ricardo Chavez Soto, Claudio Baeza, Fernando Arce, Kevin Mercado, Juan Delgado; Maximiliano Salas, Mauro Quiroga

ATLETICO SAN LUIS

  • Atletico San Luis have enjoyed a great start to the season and are undefeated so far with one win and one draw. However, they face this road game knowing they posted a W5, L4 record away from home during the Apertura and they lost three of their last five over that span.
  • Former Necaxa player Luis Felipe Gallegos has been ruled out as he continues to deal with an ankle injury. The rest of the squad, however, should be considered as fit and available. This means San Luis will field something quite close to their best XI.

Expected starting XI: Carlos Rodriguez; Matias Catalan, Pedro Alvarez, Dionicio Escalante, Fernando Leon, Luis Ricardo Reyes; Camilo Mayada, Juan David Castro; German Berterame; Nicolas Ibanez, Ian Gonzalez

THE PREDICTION

Necaxa seem to be the stronger team on paper and they also have the edge of playing at home and even though the numbers do not support that statement, the hosts should be able to cruise their way to victory in front of their fans. San Luis tend to take an all-or-nothing approach when playing on the road but they have been overachieving so far and they must come back down to earth at some point which should see Necaxa claim all three points.
