Pachuca vs Club América Preview
“Tuzos” and “Águilas” face off for the first time since the dramatic Liguilla tie where the Hidalgo side were able to eliminate Club América on away goals after a 5-5 aggregate.
Pachuca are starting to get back on track and look forward to come away victors in what will be the 50th match that these two have faced off.
They will be without their attacker Avilés Hurtado, who earned this fifth yellow card of the tournament this past weekend and will be unavailable for the midweek match.
Club América were left with a bitter taste in their mouth after the scoreless draw against Chivas in the Clásico Nacional. The Mexican media looked at referee César Arturo Ramos as one of the main reasons why the azulcremas did not win after there were two instances where there were Chivas players that committed infractions worthy of red cards.
Despite this, the referee did not even go to VAR to check the incidents. There was talk that Club América would file a complaint against the official, but authorities decided to not follow through on that action.
“One does not leave satisfied when you believe that some of the decisions could have been different,” said coach Santiago Solari.
“There are refereeing mistakes all throughout a tournament and they balance out and we hope that it ends up being that way. We don’t have any bad thoughts. We had (the calls) go against us and we will be patient.”
The visitors know that a win in Hidalgo would give them a four-point cushion over a reeling Toluca atop the table with six rounds remaining in the regular season, more importantly, they would have open an eight-point gap over Atlético San Luis in their aspirations to get an automatic spot to the quarterfinals.
Although there are some players out for an extended period of time, there are names that begin to emerge as possible options. While Renato Ibarra will be out for the majority of the semester, Santiago Naveda and Leo Suárez are now doubtful for this match, but they are getting closer to being fully recovered and ready for selection.
Sebastián Cáceres will also be available once more after serving his suspension for being sent off against Toluca.
Pachuca probable XI: Óscar Ustari; Kevin Álvarez, Gustavo Cabral, Óscar Murillo, Matías Catalán; Jorge Hernández, Víctor Guzmán; Francisco Figueroa, Erick Sánchez, Santiago Mosquera; Nicolás Ibáñez
Club América probable XI: Guillermo Ochoa; Luis Fuentes, Sebastian Caceres, Emmanuel Aguilera, Salvador Reyes; Pedro Aquino, Richard Sánchez; Sebastián Córdova, Alvaro Fidalgo; Roger Martinez; Henry Martín
