Chivas coach Matias Almeyda makes use of two players that just returned from the Rio 2016 Olympics as Carlos Salcedo and Carlos Cisneros both get the start. This means Carlos Salcido will likely slide into the midfield again, while Salcedo takes over the left center-back position. Also noteworthy is the fact that Javier Eduardo “La Chofis” Lopez gets another start, with Carlos Alberto “Gullit” Pena only making the Chivas bench.
Santos Laguna, meanwhile, field one of their strongest starting XIs possible. Goalkeeper Agustin Marchesin is deemed fit enough to start despite picking up what looked like a finger injury in Santos Laguna’s last league game. The Guerreros are still winless this season.
