Ignacio Ambriz is forced to make several changes in the starting lineup after Rubens Sambueza picked up a suspension for yellow card accumulation against Cruz Azul. Renato Ibarra, who was impressive in Club America’s 4-3 comeback win over Cruz Azul, gets the start on the right-wing, and Ambriz decides for Michael Arroyo on the opposite wing. Meanwhile, Bruno Valdez returns to the starting line-up after recent changes forced him out. Finally, Oribe Peralta gets his second straight start following an injury that kept him out for several weeks.
New Leon manager Javier Torrente decides with the same starting Xl from last week. Youngster Leonel Lopez was impressive alongside Alexander Mejia and will repeat in the midfield, while look for Elias Hernandez and Luis Montes to bring the spark for La Fiera.
