Despite an injury to Alan Pulido, Chivas coach Matias Almeyda sticks to a 4-4-2 in their visit to Puebla. Marco Bueno gets the start alongside Angel Zaldivar, with the former replacing Pulido in the starting lineup.

Meanwhile, Orbelin Pineda is deemed fit enough to start after picking up a small injury while on international duty for Mexico and will partner Michael Perez in the midfield.

On the defense is where Matias Almeyda has some problems. Both Jair Pereira and Oswaldo Alanis failed to make the trip, but Carlos Salcido and Hedgardo Marin have looked decent in the Chivas backline.

Salcido and Marin, though, will have their hands full against Puebla forward Matias Alustiza. The Argentine is one of the league’s top scorers with seven.

You will be able to watch the game at 7pm EST on Univision Deportes Network and fuboTV .

Chivas Lineup: Cota; Sánchez, Salcido, Marin, Hernández; Brizuela, Perez, Pineda, Cisneros; Bueno, Zaldívar

Puebla Lineup: Campestrini; Rojas, Herrera, Cortés, Miguez; Escudero, Torres, Toledo, Orrantía, Amione y Alustiza
