Team news & rosters

PositionNecaxa roster
Goalkeepers Malagón, González, Hernández
Defenders Oliveros, Peña, Parra, Segovia, Formiliano, Esquivel, García, Quintana, Meza
Midfielders Madrigal, Villalpando, Araos, Cardona, Palma, Garnica, Poggi, Gómez, De Jesus

Forward

Méndez, Gimenez, Batista, Godínez, Monreal, Madrid, Roque, Pedroza, Cortéz

Four games in and Necaxa have emerged with a distinctive pattern to their season - loss, win, loss, win. By that basis, they're due another defeat this time out - but they'll be determined to buck the trend if they can.

Four goals in four games is by no means a poor return, but they've leaked five at the back so far, including three in their opening loss to Toluca. They've tightened the ship at the back since but there is still work to be done.

They'll hope victory will tip the scales in their early season favour too, with back-to-back wins possibly set to function as a springboard for more success.

Predicted Necaxa starting XI: Oliveros, Segovia, Pena, Garcia, Madrigal, Esquivel, Villalpando, Garnica, Giménez, Batista; Malagón.

PositionPachuca roster
Goalkeepers Ustari, Moreno, Téllez, Rodas
Defenders Álvarez, Herrera, Carbal, Murillo, Aceves
Midfielders Tapias, Guzmán, Trindade, Chávez, Lopez, Sánchez, Alvarez, González, Perez, Isais, Marchand, Hernández, Luna, Pedraza, López, Escobedo, Saldivar
Forwards Ibáñez, De la Rossa, Hurtado, Hinestroza, De La Fuente, Ibarra, Castillo, Calzadilla, Hernandez

Two wins and two draws makes Pachuca one of the few sides left in Liga MX this term who are yet to taste defeat and they'll be keen to extend that unbeaten streak to five games on the bounce.

Goals have been at a relative premium despite an impressive league position however, with just five over their first four games.

A need to stoke their forward fires may require them to let loose against their hosts and pick up a first victory in three games.

Predicted Pachuca starting XI: Álvarez, Cabral, Tapias, Isais, Sánchez, Herrera, Hurtado, Guzman, Hernández Casiano, Ibanez; Ustari.
