Veracruz vs. Chivas Guadalajara, 2016 Liga MX Apertura: Confirmed lineups

Chivas coach Matias Almeyda repeats the same lineup from the midweek game against Tigres. with the Rebaño Sagrado again testing out two strikers against Veracruz. This means Alan Pulido gets his second consecutive league start and will partner youngster Angel Zaldivar on the attack. At the back, Carlos Salcido also gets his second consecutive start at left center-back as Jair Pereira is still out injured and Oswaldo Alanis is deemed not fit to get his first start of the season.

Pablo Marini, who is facing increasing pressure at Veracruz, decides to bench Peruvian international goalkeeper Pedro Gallese for the second game running, and Meliton Hernandez takes his place under the three posts.
