In just under a half hour, Chivas will host Monterrey in one of the biggest matchups of the season to date. Both teams can put pressure on leaders Pumas with a win here, but a draw could put the leaders in excellent position to pull away at the top of the table. Looking solely at the injury list, it looks as though Monterrey might have the personnel advantage – Chivas have based much of their early success on solid defending, but will be without both Patricio Araujo, an important defensive piece. Meanwhile, Aldo De Nigris will finally be available after missing the first part of the season through injury, but will not start. Humberto Suazo will miss out, too, meaning Monterrey will lack the offensive punch they enjoyed last year, but should not be discounted with Cesar Delgado in good form.

Chivas lineup: Michel; Reynoso, Magallon, Esparza, Ponce, Sanchez, Mejia, Gallardo, Fabian, Arellano, Medina

Monterrey lineup: Orozco; Osorio, Mier, S. Perez, Chavez; Zavala, L. Perez, Ayovi, Cardozo, Delgado; Carreño.

You can catch this evening's action on Telemundo at 8 p.m. ET. If that isn't your cup of tea, Santos Laguna-Morelia is on Telefutura at the same time.
