The Chivas Guadalajara vs Leones Negros Copa MX match will be played this Wednesday, January 15, 2014 (7:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Omnilife. Chivas and Universidad de Guadalajara will face-off in an old city classic in a Group 6 match. These two teams are the favorites to win their group, therefore Wednesday’s game will be the best match of the first week in the Copa MX of the Clausura 2014.
The team coached by Jose Luis Real has shown a renewed face at the beginning of the Liga MX season. After two games, Chivas has gathered 4 points, but most importantly the team has been more confident on defense. This Wednesday, Chivas and Leones Negros will play each other for the first time since 1994, to reopen an old Guadalajara rivalry between two historical teams. Although Chivas is not expected to play its starters, this game will allow the team to keep on gaining form, but most importantly, confidence ahead of the Clausura 2014.
The team coached by Alfonso Sosa faces a difficult Copa MX tournament. While they share Group 6 with a first division team like Chivas, they are strong candidates to win the group against the other rivals; Dorados and Estudiantes Tecos. Leones Negros are the reigning Ascenso MX champions, therefore the next semester is extremely crucial for the goal of reaching the first division. The game against Chivas will be a tough battle, although it will not be a surprise if Leones line up reserves with the idea of focusing entirely in their league with the purpose of defending their title.
