Pachuca is currently in 10th place with nine points but has been underwhelming considering the squad it has. Los Tuzos have players like Keisuke Honda, Edson Puch, Erick Gutierrez, Oscar Murillo, Jonathan Urretaviscaya and more and should be competing for more than they are.
The latest result for Diego Alonso’s side was a 2-1 loss against Club Tijuana away from home in a game with several absences including Edson Puch and Erick Gutierrez. An absentee for this game will be midfielder Victor Guzman who received a red card in the game against Club Tijuana. Keisuke Honda featured in 45 minutes of that game but he may get the start in this game after productive use of his limited playing time. Los Tuzos are in better form than Chivas and do arguably have a much better squad, these factors and the home-field advantage should make Pachuca the favorite going into the game.
Chivas of Guadalajara has been the most disappointing team in the Liga MX Apertura 2017 currently in penultimate place with just five points. The latest result for Los Rojiblancos was a lackluster scoreless draw against Queretaro at home. Players like Orbelin Pineda, Rodolfo Pizarro and Oswaldo Alanis have been massively underperforming this season.
Angel Zaldivar has also not been filling in great in that striker role replacing the injured Alan Pulido which has also been a significant factor in Chivas’ downfall this tournament. This should be a challenging task for El Rebano Sagrado especially away from home but the game should prove to be a thrilling contest between two of the teams with the best squads in the Liga MX.
