It has been seldom in recent games that CD Guadalajara haven’t conceded. The reality is that Chivas have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 matches, leaking 5 goals on the way. Putting that to one side, we must now wait to see whether such a trend shall continue on here in this game or not.

CD Guadalajara manager Víctor Vucetich has no fitness worries whatsoever before this game thanks to a completely healthy group available for selection.
Team News: Atlas
Owing to an otherwise full-strength group, there is only the one fitness problem for the Atlas manager Diego Cocca to be concerned with. Edgar Zaldívar (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.
We think that Atlas will have a tough ask to hit the back of the net against this CD Guadalajara side who we reckon will win and very possibly keep a clean sheet.
That’s why our selection here is for a very competitive encounter with a 1-0 victory for CD Guadalajara at the end of this game.
Let’s see how it plays out.
