Chivas: Well, Chivas is going to look different in this one. Luis Fernando Tena was named the coach this week, replacing Tomas Boy. Tena guided Cruz Azul to the CONCACAF Champions League title in 2013-15 but has had a rough go of things since then. Whether he’s the man for the job remains to be seen, but he can create some positive vibes with a result here. Chivas is 3-2-5 and in 16th place out of 19 teams.
America: The team is 4-6-1 in the league and in fifth place, five points from the top. They’ve gotten more draws than expected and haven’t won any of their last eight games in all competitions. Neither team is entering with great form, but America has more than enough to battle back and get the victory.
