Three weeks after lifting the SuperCopa MX trophy in front of a sold-out crowd at StubHub Center, Chivas make their return to Southern California for a friendly against EPL-side Arsenal.
Matias Almeyda’s side arrive to this friendly just two days after suffering a 4-0 defeat to Xolos de Tijuana at the Estadio Caliente. In that sense, this friendly couldn’t arrive at a worst time. In total, the Rebaño Sagrado will have played four games in a space of less than eight days in a squad that is already being stretched with the absences of several key squad players for the Olympics.
On the other hand, Arsenal are on the final game of their U.S tour after beating the MLS All-Star team at Avaya Stadium. Arsène Wenger’s men are prepping for what is expected to be another long EPL season, as the Gunners look to improve from their second place finish from last season.
Match date/time: Sunday 9pm EST, 6pm local
Venue: Estadio Azteca, Mexico City, Mexico
TV: Univision Deportes Network (US - Spanish), Fox Sports 1 (US)
