The Chivas vs Dorados of Sinaloa Copa MX match will take place on Wednesday, August 28, 2013 (5:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Omnilife. Both teams are part of Group 6: Leon (12 points), Chivas (8 points), Necaxa (1 point), and Dorados (1 point). Only the first placed team will move on to the Copa MX quarterfinals.
Chivas needs to win this match in order to remain with the same amount of points as Leon, and ultimately seek qualification to the quarterfinals in the matches against Leon. A draw or loss would leave Chivas in deep jeopardy of being eliminated in the group stage.
In the first match against Dorados in Sinaloa, Chivas came out with a 3-2 victory that kept their hopes alive. Now, Chivas must face a weak Dorados at the Estadio Omnilife and hope to come out with the 3 points.
Chivas needs this win for morale boosting purpose as well. New coach Juan Carlos Ortega had a disappointing debut in the Liga MX, losing 2-0 against a weak Queretaro. Chivas will host Toluca on Sunday in the Liga MX, and a win in the Copa MX over Dorados could give the players a much needed boost.
For their part, Dorados are essentially eliminated from the Copa MX, after having earned only 1 point after 3 matches. Dorados is currently sitting in 9th place of the Ascenso MX standings, and will want to focus on that competition instead. Look for Dorados to use an all-reserve team against Chivas.
Chivas vs Dorados Copa MX Prediction
Chivas desperately needs this win to remain alive in the Copa MX, and to provide a badly needed morale boost. Although Chivas will likely field younger players, still look for them to dominate and ultimately come out with the win. The Chivas vs Dorados match will end in a 1-0 home win for Chivas.
