Club America coach Ignacio Ambriz will not make any changes from last week’s team that finished 1-1 with Monarcas Morelia at the Estadio Azteca. Oribe Peralta is still recovering from his nose injury picked up at the Rio 2016 Olympics, and as such, Silvio “Chino” Romero gets the start leading the line. Meanwhile, Darwin Quintero, who was the subject of plenty of criticism for some woeful finishing against Morelia, has the full confidence of the coach and starts behind Romero.
Puebla coach Ricardo Valiño makes several changes from the team that narrowly lost to Atlas last week at the Estadio Jalisco. Most notably Alexis Canelo, who picked up a knock against the Rojinegros, is deemed not fit.
You will be able to watch the game at 7pm EST on Univision Deportes Network, and fuboTV.
