The post Ignacio Ambriz era gets underway in Aguascalientes as Las Aguilas take on Necaxa at the Estadio Victoria. For this game, the interim manager of Las Aguilas welcomes the return of Rubens Sambueza, who was missing last weekend through suspension. Meanwhile, “Chepe” Guerrero is back in the starting lineup after Javier Guemez started in his place against Leon. Finally, youngster Diego Pineda gets the start alongside Oribe Peralta in place of the injured Silvio Romero.

Necaxa’s lineup features no real surprises. After much experimenting, coach Luis Alfonso Sosa looks to have finally decided on a fixed starting lineup. Look for former Chivas youth product Jairo Gonzalez to get involved on the attack, while Edson Puch will look to break a small scoring duck after starting off hot for Los Rayos.

You will be able to watch the game at 7pm EST on Unimas and fuboTV.

America Lineup: Muñoz; Paul Aguilar, Pablo Aguilar, Goltz, Valdez; Sambueza, Guerrero, Martínez, Arroyo; Pineda, Peralta

Necaxa: Barovero; Meza, Beckeles, De Luna, González; García, Iturra, Gallegos, Espíndola; Díaz, Puch
