Team news

Chivas: The main absentee that Gago will have to deal with is Raul Martinez who has a knee injury so will be unable to feature. Otherwise, there are no suspensions so the starting XI should be relatively strong.

Potential Chivas XI: Jose Rangel Alan Mozo, Gilberto Sepulveda, Jesus Orozco, Jose Castillo; Erick Gutierrez, Fernando Beltran; Victor Guzman, Roberto Alvarado, Pavel Perez; Ricardo Marin.

America: Sebastian Caceres and Emilio Lara are out injured so Jardine will have to do without them. However, there are no suspended players so those two are the only absentees from what is otherwise a more or less healthy group.

Potential America XI: Louis Malagon; Israel Kings, Igor Lichnovsky, Ramon Juarez, Christian Calderon; Jonathan Dos Santos, Alvaro Fidalgo; Javairo Dilrosun, Diego Valdes, Alex Zendejas; Henry Martin.

Prediction

America barely made it through the quarterfinals and will hope to be more convincing although Chivas are looking strong and will be tough opponents. A score draw sounds about right which sets it up nicely for the second leg. Pick: Chivas 1, America 1.
