Chivas coach Matias Almeyda repeats lineup from the one that clinched the SuperCopa MX title last week. All eyes will be on Orbelin Pineda, who has been in great form for the Rebaño Sagrado and got on the scoresheet in his last outing. The biggest question for Chivas remains the goals, though. Orbelin will need all the help he can get from his front three in Brizuela, Cisneros, and Zaldivar.
For Pumas UNAM, Gerardo Alcoba fails to make the starting lineup in Juan Francisco Palencia's first game in charge of the Universitarios. Spanish duo Abraham Gonzalez and Saul Berjon, however, will make their first start in Liga MX after being tasked in replacing fan-favorite Ismael Sosa in the starting lineup.
You will be able to watch the game at 1pm EST on Univision, Univision Deportes Network, and fuboTV.
Chivas Lineup: Cota; Sánchez, Salcedo, Pereira, Hernández; Salcido, Peña, Cisneros , Pineda, Brizuela; Zaldívar
Pumas UNAM Lineup: Palacios; Alatorre, Verón, Castro, Fuentes; Cortés, González, Barrera, Berjon; Britos; Herrera.
