Club America coach Ricardo Antonio La Volpe repeats lineups for a third straight match. Ventura Alvarado keeps his place at right-back, while youngster Edson Alvarez continues to play a big role in America’s backline. As ever, Paolo Goltz, Pablo Aguilar, and Miguel Samudio make up the rest of America’s five-man defense.
In the midfield, Renato Ibarra will be in charge of adding width, and despite concerns from the America faithful, Oribe Peralta looks to once again start on the left-side of the midfield, with William occupying the center.
In charge of making things happen in the final third will be Darwin Quintero and Silvio Romero.
Meanwhile, Necaxa come into this game needing to score to have any chance of keeping their fairy-tale run alive. The Hidrorayos present no surprises for this match as Edson Puch and Jesus Isijara will be two players to keep an eye out for in the red and white jerseys.
You will be able to watch the game at 10:00pm EST on Univision, Univision Deportes Network, and fuboTV.
