The Clásico Tapatío is here! The only change for coach Matias Almeyda from last week is a forced one. Chivas will have to do without Carlos Salcido after the veteran midfielder picked up an injury last week. In Salcido’s place will be youngster Michael Perez, who did a good job in Chivas’ victory over Santos Laguna. Meanwhile, this could be Carlos Salcedo’s last game with Chivas after it was reported he would complete a 7 million dollar move to Serie A outfit Fiorentina.
For Atlas, Jose Guadalupe Cruz fields a very similar team to the one he has been playing with in the last few weeks. Look for Leiton Jimenez and Jaine Barreiro to try to improve in the defense after looking shaky in the past few weeks for the Rojinegros.
You will be able to watch the game at 10pm EST on Univision and Univision Deportes Network, and fuboTV.
