Chivas coach Matias Almeyda decides to give record new signing Alan Pulido his first league start after his goal-scoring performance against Toluca three days ago. This will be the first game in which Almeyda starts with two out-and-out strikers as Angel Zaldivar also gets the start. Meanwhile, in the defense, veteran defender Carlos Salcido will slot in to help out Hedgardo Marín.

On the other hand, no surprises from Ricardo “Tuca’” Ferretti , opting to stick with the same lineup from the last few weeks. Mexico international Jesus Dueñas will play on the right-hand side, while Jose Francisco “Gringo” Torres makes up the midfield with Guido Pizarro. As ever, Andre-Pierre Gignac is the lone striker for the undefeated Tigres.

You will be able to watch the game at 8pm EST on Unimas and fuboTV.

Chivas Lineup: Cota; Sánchez, Marin, Salcido, Hernández; Brizuela, Perez, Pineda, Cisneros; Pulido, Zaldívar

Tigres Lineup: Guzman; Dueñas, Ayala, Juninho, Torres Nilo; Pizarro, Torres; Sosa, Zelarayan, Aquino; Gignac
