The Chivas vs Morelia Liga MX 2013 match will be this Friday, January 25, 2013 (8:30 PM EDT) at the Estadio Morelos. The Chivas Rayadas and Monarcas Morelia will open Week 4 of the Clausura 2013. This is one of the games of the week due to intensity and the fact that star forwards Rafael Marquez Lugo and Miguel Sabah will play together once again but against their ex-team.
Chivas of Guadalajara currently has only 2 points after a tie in the first and third week. Like last season, they already have suffered from suspensions, and injuries once again raising the question if this team has bad results due to bad players or the lack of them. On Friday night, they will face Morelia’s powerful offense, but also their unbalanced defense. That game will be a good opportunity for Benjamin Galindo’s squad to earn their first win of the season.
Ruben Omar Romano’s team won last week 2-1 against a weak San Luis team. Currently with 4 points, Monarcas Morelia is a team with high hopes of qualifying into the playoffs and even playing for the title. Although the road is long, Morelia has shown outstanding things at offense, especially in the wings lead by Jefferson Montero and Joao Rojas. On Friday their defense cannot allow for mistakes to happen, because that will lead to a loss of points against Chivas and it could also mark the way this team will defend for the rest of the season.
Chivas vs Morelia Prediction
Morelia began the Clausura 2013 season the same way they did during the Apertura 2012; good offense, and a roller-coaster defense. After three matches they have 4 points, and they will have a difficult task when facing their ex-star forwards Miguel Sabah and Rafael Marquez Lugo. Guadalajara only has 2 points, and they are urged to earn a win. Chivas will finally have a full squad and this will be noticed after they obtain their first win of the season. The Chivas vs Morelia 2013 match will end 1-0 in favor of the visitors.
