The Leones Negros vs Chivas Guadalajara Copa MX Week 2 match will take place this Tuesday, January 21, 2014 (7:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Jalisco. These two teams faced each other in Week 1 of the Copa MX on January 15 at the Estadio Omnilife, in a match that ended 1-1. Now, both teams will want to look for the win, in order to avoid falling too far behind Group 6 leader Dorados, which currently have 3 points after defeating Tecos 3-1.
Jose Luis Real’s team is coming off a 1-1 Liga MX draw against Veracruz this past Saturday; Chivas are currently undefeated in the Liga MX, having earned 5 points out of three matches. However, the team coach Real is using in the Copa MX is vastly different, as it is mostly youth players participating in the Copa MX. With a good result in the Liga MX being the priority for Chivas this season, Real has decided to give his younger players some badly needed playing experience in the Copa MX.
Leones Negros, the defending Ascenso MX champions, will also be using an alternate squad in the Copa MX. UdeG is completely focused on having another good season that would ensure they move up to the Liga MX, that is why the Copa MX is not a main priority. Nonetheless, the Leones Negros will be playing at home, in front of the best Ascenso MX fan-base, thus, we can expect a great match.
Leones Negros vs Chivas Guadalajara Prediction
This is a fantastic rivalry that has been revived due to the Copa MX, and we can expect a great turnout at the Estadio Jalisco. This Guadalajara derby will not be featuring each sides’ best team, unfortunately, but we can still expect a great match. The crowd will be fully committed, and although Leones Negros will be playing at home, plenty of Chivas fans will be in attendance. The Chivas Guadalajara vs Leones Negros match will end in a 2-1 win for Leones Negros, who will go on to take an important lead in Group 6 of the Copa MX.
