It’s crunch time at the Estadio Chivas. Ricardo Antonio La Volpe comes out with one of his most attacking lineups to date. The one surprise comes in the defense, where Ventura Alvarado gets the start at right-back. Rubens Sambueza’s injury means Oribe Peralta will have to play more as an anchor than a no. 9 as Renato Ibarra and Darwin Quintero will look add width to the America attack. As ever, Silvio Romero will be the one in charge of scoring the goals.

Meanwhile, Chivas makes a much-needed change in the midfield. Jose Juan “Gallito” Vazquez gets the start in place of Michael Perez, but the rest of the lineup is unchanged from the first leg. The one worry for Matias Almeyda is Angel Zaldivar, who is once again not fit enough to even make the bench.

You will be able to watch the game at 7:06pm EST on Univision, Univision Deportes Network, and fuboTV.

America Lineup: Muñoz; Alvarado, Álvarez, Goltz, Pablo Aguilar, Samudio; Ibarra, Da Silva, Quintero; Romero, Peralta
