This Saturday, July 8, 2017 (6:00 PM Pacific) Chivas of Guadalajara will play Monarcas Morelia at the Toyota Park in Chicago, Illinois for a friendly match. Both teams had a solid Clausura 2017 campaign and even played each other in the Copa MX final.
Chivas was, of course, one of the more successful teams in the Clausura 2017, winning both the Copa MX and Liga MX titles. Los Rojiblancos will look to repeat the success of last season in this upcoming season even without any major signings in the offseason. Matias Almeyda will be without several key players for this match including Alan Pulido, Jair Pereira, Hedgardo Marin, Orbelin Pineda and Rodolfo Pizarro. It will be interesting to see if any major players like Rodolfo Cota or Oswaldo Alanis get the nod to start the game and how El Rebano Sagrado does lineup with these key absences.
Monarcas Morelia had a surprisingly over successful Clausura 2017 campaign making the Copa MX final and the Liga MX playoffs while avoiding relegation as well. La Monarquia has not made many signings this offseason but already counts with a talented core of players like Sebastian Sosa, Gabriel Achilier and Raul Ruidiaz. It should be intriguing to see if those players can stay consistent going into next season and help Monarcas Morelia get another playoff push. The game should be an exciting one, with both teams emerging as contenders heading into the Apertura 2017.
