The Chivas Guadalajara vs Leon Liga MX match will be played this Sunday, March 16, 2014 (4:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Omnilife. Chivas and Leon will face-off in one of the most noteworthy matches during Week 11 of the Clausura 2014. The Rebaño Sagrado has fallen once again into a terrible run of form, while the Panzas Verdes must win in order to remain within the top positions.
The team coached by Jose Luis Real has not won in three straight matches. In the past three games, Chivas has lost two and tied another, which by effect has pushed them away from the top table positions (13th place/13 points). With a win against Leon, the Rebaño Sagrado will reach 16 points, and has the chance of moving into 5th place.
Meanwhile, Club Leon surprisingly lost last week at home against relegation contender Veracruz 1-0. That loss could be attrubuted to Veracruz’s strong play, however, a better reason is that Leon is beginning to feel the effects of playing in both the Clausura 2014 and the Copa Libertadores. For that same reason, coach Gustavo Matosas is expected to align an alternate team in order to rest main players like Carlos Peña, Luis Montes, or Rafa Marquez.
