THE TEAM NEWS

PUEBLA

  • Puebla have posted one win and two losses thus far in their first three Liga MX matches, and have suffered both defeats on a back-to-back basis. Here, however, they return home where they own just one win in their last five home outings (W1, D2, L2).
  • Cristian Tabo missed last week’s match with a suspension, but he should be ready to return to the starting XI in this game. However, right-back Jesus Paganoni remains sidelined due to concussion-like symptoms. Brayan Angulo is out as well due to an ankle problem.

Expected starting XI: Nikolas Vikonis; Alan Acosta, Maximiliano Perg, Daniel Arreola, Carlos Rodriguez; Christian Marrugo, Pablo Gonzalez, Osvaldo Martinez; Omar Fernandez, Cristian Tabo, Cristian Menendez

AMERICA

  • America are coming off a disappointing 3-1 home win over FC Juarez, and they have not been able to find adequate results yet. Las Aguilas currently sit in 11th place of the standings with just one win in three games so far, and they are winless in their last two.
  • The list of absentees for Club America should remain unchanged compared to last week’s match. Nicolas Benedetti and Federico Vinas are on U23 international duty with Colombia and Uruguay, respectively. Nicolas Castillo underwent surgery and he will be out for an indefinite period. Alex Renato Ibarra remains sidelined due to his nagging hamstring injury. And to make things even worse, Jorge Sanchez is suspended.

Expected starting XI: Guillermo Ochoa; Paul Aguilar, Bruno Valdez, Emanuel Aguilera, Luis Fuentes; Andres Ibarguen, Fernando Gonzalez, Sebastian Cordova, Richard Sanchez; Giovani dos Santos; Henry Martin

THE PREDICTION

America and Puebla have been struggling so far in the Clausura, and both enter this game riding a two-game winless streak. Las Aguilas currently have a stronger roster and while their attack should be depleted, they are good enough to keep any defence on their toes so far. Puebla have the edge of being at home, but they have lost two straight and America are primed for a bounce-back performance following their recent results. America should win here rather easily.
