No surprises from Club America coach Ricardo Antonio La Volpe. Youngster Edson Alvarez gets the nod at right-back while Gil Buron slots in the middle with Paolo Goltz and Pablo Aguilar. William da Silva gets the start in the midfield as Rubens Sambueza and Renato Ibarra are given the task of stretching the field. In charge of scoring the goals are Silvio Romero and Carlos Darwin Quintero, who looked bright last week in his return from injury.
Matias Almeyda makes one surprise in his starting lineup. Despite a below average regular season, Carlos Alberto “Gullit” Peña gets the start ahead of Javier Eduardo “La Chofis” Lopez. No room for Angel Zaldivar, though, who is still recovering from injury.
