UANL Tigres Vs. Cruz Azul, 2011 Apertura: Lineups And Live Match Thread

New, 34 comments

This season, in the 2011 Apertura, we're going to have a game of the week every week where we put up a match thread and provide some live commentary in the comments section. Just like the Mexico matches that we had match threads for over the course of the summer, we encourage you guys to pop in and comment about the game while it's going on. This week's game of the week is UANL Tigres vs. Cruz Azul. Here are your lineups.

Cruz Azul lineup: Gutierrez; Pinto, Cortes, Dominguez, Castro, Flores; Torrado, Castro; Drougett, Villaluz; Villa

UANL Tigres lineup: Palos; Torres Nilo, Rivas, Ayala, Jimenez; Alvarez, Toledo, Viniegra, Danilinho; Lobos; Mancilla

Cruz Azul are playing with a back five and wingers, which is a thing that I'm pretty sure only happens in FMF. Expect Drougett and Villaluz to come inside quite a bit. Chaco Gimenez and Jose de Jesus Corona are suspended for Cruz Azul, while Juninho is suspended for Tigres. Cruz Azul manager Enrique Meza is also serving a touchline ban.

The game kicks off at 8:00 pm ET from Estadio Universitario. If you live in the USA, the game is in Telemundo, and I believe that the incomparable Andres Cantor is on the call.
