🗞️ Team News: Querétaro FC
The Querétaro FC manager Mauro Gerk will be happy not to have any fitness worries to speak of ahead of this match owing to a fully injury-free squad ready to go.
It’s our opinion that Gallos Blancos look set to use the 4-4-2 system for this game, handing starts to J. Antonio Rodriguez, Omar Israel Mendoza, Jordan Silva, Kevin Balanta, Gabriel Rojas, Pablo Barrera, Rodrigo Lopez, Kevin Escamilla, Leonardo Sequeira, Ariel Nahuelpan and Jose Angulo.
🗞️ Team News: Club Tijuana
Due to a fully healthy squad ready to go, the Club Tijuana manager Ricardo Valiño has zero fitness worries at all coming into this game.
We are inclined to think that Xoloitzcuintles seem most likely to elect for a 4-4-2 formation, starting the game with Jonathan Orozco, Ismael Govea, V. Andrés Guzmán, Lisandro Lopez, Nicolás Díaz, Joaquín Montecinos, Federico Lértora, Jose Vazquez, Lucas Rodríguez, Edgar López and Alexis Pedro Canelo.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Club Tijuana have it in them to find the back of the net against this Querétaro FC side, although that is unlikely to be as many as they will have scored against them.
We reckon that it will be a narrow 2-1 winning margin for Querétaro FC when the full-time whistle blows. Definitely a tough call.
