THE TEAM NEWS

TIGRES UANL

  • Tigres UANL have not performed as expected during the 2020 Clausura campaign so far, and they are coming off a 0-0 draw at Puebla. For what it's worth, they have gone W2, D1, L2 in their last five matches so the inconsistencies are palpable.
  • Jorge Torres Nilo and Diego Reyes have been listed as doubtful, and both players will be a game-time decision for this contest. Jose Francisco Torres and Luis Quinones have both been ruled out through injury.

Expected starting XI: Nahuel Guzman; Luis Alfonso Rodriguez, Hugo Ayala, Francisco Meza, Jesus Duenas; Javier Aquino, Guido Pizarro, Rafael Carioca; Raymundo Fulgencio, Andre-Pierre Gignac, Enner Valencia

JUAREZ

  • Juarez have been one of the biggest surprises in the league thus far, as they have posted a W4, D2, L3 mark so far in the Clausura – although they are coming off a 4-1 loss to Leon. That said, Juarez have won just one of their last five games (W1, D1, L2) so they could be trending in the wrong direction of late.
  • Diego Rolan missed last week’s match and he has been dealing with injuries over the last few weeks, so his chances of starting here could be quite slim. Jonathan Lacerda has been ruled out due to injury but Flavio Santos could return after a one-game suspension.

Expected starting XI: Ivan Vazquez; Israel Jimenez, Maximiliano Olivera, Gustavo Velazquez, Bruno Romo; Jose Joaquin Esquivel, Jefferson Intriago; Angelo Sagal, William Mendieta, Mauro Fernandez; Dario Lezcano

THE PREDICTION

Tigres UANL have under-performed this season, while Juarez seem to be trending in the wrong direction after earning just one win in their last four Clausura outings. These two sides are separated by just three points in the league standings, and both have posted a W2, D1, L2 mark in their last five league matches. All things considered, this game might end in a draw since both teams can match up quite well with the other.
