THE TEAM NEWS

QUERETARO

  • Queretaro enjoyed a great start to the season with three wins in their first four games but they have gathered just one victory in their last four contests. They are coming off a 1-1 draw at Pachuca and that result extended their winless run to two games (D1, L1).
  • Queretaro can consider themselves lucky as they are one of a few teams that have a clean bill of health entering this round. As a result, the coaching staff would be able to choose the best XI for this home contest.

Expected starting XI: Gil Alcala; Jorge Aguilar, Jair Pereira, Julian Velazquez, Areli Hernandez; Clifford Aboagye, Jaime Gomez, Marcel Alejandro Ruiz, Fabian Castillo; Ariel Nahuelpan, Jeison Lucumi

TOLUCA

  • Toluca snapped their six-game winless run (D3, L3) with a huge 2-0 home win over Monterrey the last time out but their defensive woes should remain a concern. Los Diablos Rojos own the league’s second-worst defensive record with 14 goals conceded.
  • Toluca should be close to full strength ahead of this contest, as Alan Medina will be the only player that will be under the questionable tag. Any other potential changes to the lineup would be related to managerial choices.

Expected starting XI: Alfredo Talavera; Luis Donaldo Hernandez, Jonathan Maidana, Adrian Mora, Anibal Chala; William Da Silva, Javier Guemez; Felipe Pardo, Leonardo Fernandez, Giovanny Leon; Pedro Alexis Canelo

THE PREDICTION

Both Queretaro and Toluca are coming off poor runs of form but Gallos Blancos are in a better position since they sit in seventh place of the standings with 13 points, as opposed to Toluca’s 14th place and eight points. Gallos Blancos have the edge of the home-field advantage despite losing two straight games in front of their crowd, while Toluca are on a three-game winless streak away from home (D2, L1). The struggles of both sides are palpable, but Queretaro are slight favourites here.
