THE TEAM NEWS

NECAXA

  • Necaxa currently sit in second place in the league standings with 28 points and are just two points behind first-placed Santos Laguna. Rayos are on a five-game undefeated streak (W3, D2) and they’re coming off a solid 2-0 away win at Atlas.
  • Alexis Pena has been ruled out through injury but he is the only absentee for Rayos ahead of this contest.

Expected Starting XI: Hugo Gonzalez; Luis Felipe Gallegos, Ventura Alvarado, Fernando Meza, Rodrigo Noya, Cristian Calderon; Jesus Angulo, Claudio Baeza, Juan Delgado; Mauro Quiroga, Maximiliano Salas

PACHUCA

  • Pachuca are not playing very well of late. They are currently riding a three-game losing streak – where they have conceded six goals – and they have won just five games all season long (W5, D3, L7). They’re coming off a 2-3 home defeat against Monterrey, and sit in 12th place in the standings with 18 points.
  • Emmanuel Garcia Vaca and Victor Mora have been ruled out through injury but Tuzos shouldn’t have other absentees ahead of this contest.

Expected Starting XI: Rodrigo Rey; Raul Lopez Gomez, Oscar Murillo, Gustavo Cabral, Luis Chavez; Erick Aguirre, Edwin Cardona, Jorge Hernandez, Rubens Sambueza; Victor Guzman; Franco Jara

THE PREDICTION

Pachuca have been struggling badly in recent weeks, while Necaxa certainly look like the better side on paper. If we also add the fact that they’ll be playing at home – where they have lost just once all season long – then Necaxa should be heavily considered as favourites ahead of this match.
