No surprise here as Ricardo La Volpe starts with a line of five in his first game in charge of Las Aguilas. His change in formation sees “Chepe” Guerrero, who usually plays as defensive midfielder, start as a center back, while Osmar Mares returns to the starting lineup as left back. William da Silva also gets the start in the midfield for Club America.
Meanwhile, Pumas UNAM coach Francisco Palencia fields a similar team from recent weeks. 22-year-old Jesus Gallardo starts over Saul Berjon, and the big surprise in the lineup is the return of fan-favorite Gerardo Alcoba in the Pumas defense. Finally, Palencia opts for Matias Britos as his sole striker over Eduardo Herrera.
You will be able to watch the game at 10pm EST on Univision, Univision Deportes Network, and fuboTV.
