Chivas Guadalajara will be eager to challenge their superior-placed opponent in the upcoming match. Guadalajara will enter the match after securing a 2-0 away win against Puebla. Interestingly, Guadalajara converted both of their shots on goal. Robert Alvarado (25’) netted from the spot, while Ronaldo Cisneros (72’) scored the second goal.
Tigres UANL will be the favorites to edge out their upcoming Liga MX Apertura clash against Chivas Guadalajara.
Chivas Guadalajara and Tigres UANL have faced off 34 times in Liga MX since their first meeting in September 2010. Guadalajara have won eight matches, while Tigres have maintained the upper hand with 13 wins. The rivalry has registered 13 draws.
Guadalajara and Tigres last faced off in the second leg of the Liga MX Clausura Final. Hosts Guadalajara registered a 2-3 loss to Tigres UANL. Robert Alvarado (11’) and Victor Guzman (20’) netted for Guadalajara, while goals from Andre-Pierre Gignac (65’) and Sebastian Cordova (71’) for Tigres took the fixture to extra time. Guido Pizarro (110’) hit the winner to guide the Tigres to victory.
Guadalajara will look to defend their fortress at home after registering two wins, two losses, and one draw in their last five fixtures. Meanwhile, Tigres UANL will look to improve their away record after registering two wins, two losses, and a draw in the last five fixtures.
Guadalajara will look to break into the top three with a win. However, they will have their task cut out against a formidable opponent. The hosts currently have 21 points from 13 fixtures, and a win can momentarily guide them to the third spot ahead of Monterrey.
It will also be a chance for Guadalajara to build on their winning momentum after registering a win against Puebla in the last match.
The hosts will miss out on the services of their terrific duo, Cristian Calderon and Alexis Vega. Calderon has made nine appearances in the Liga MX Apertura, assisting three goals, while Vega has netted once in seven matches.
Calderon and Vega are expected to return later this week after being absent from the squad since the first week of October due to personal reasons.
Mexican winger Roberto Alvarado will remain the key for the hosts in front of goal. The 25-year-old has netted five times, including three spot kicks, and assisted once in 10 matches. He will also find support from center forward Ricardo Marin, who has netted four times and assisted once.
In the absence of Calderon, the most important assist provider for the club, the onus of getting the ball into scoring areas will be on Victor Guzman and Issac Brizuela. The duo have assisted twice each in the Liga MX Apertura.
Tigres UANL are one point behind league leaders Club America. Both clubs have played 16 matches. If the Tigres secure a win over Guadalajara, then they will momentarily take the pole position.
The visitors will bank on their fine run to secure all three points. The Siboldi-managed club is unbeaten in the last five Liga MX Apertura fixtures. The club registered their last loss against Atlas in September.
The visitors will miss out on the services of their center back, Diego Reyes, who is nursing a hand injury. The 31-year-old, who has made nine appearances this season and is a crucial player for the club, is expected to return in early November.
The club will continue to miss out on the services of David Ayala, who is yet to feature in the current Apertura season. He is expected to recover from his broken knee cap injury later this week. Goalkeeper Miguel Ortega, who sustained a shoulder injury in May, is also expected to return this month.
The visitors will bank on the performance of their in-form striker Gignac. The Frenchman has been the most valuable player for the club this season, netting eight goals and assisting four in 10 appearances.
He will be expected to display his goal-scoring prowess in the upcoming match and add more goals to his tally.
