Forward

Diogo, Dinenno, Huerta, Del Prete, Montejano, Navarro

The capture of Barcelona and Brazil legend Dani Alves is a real statement of intent for Pumas this term, even with the defender into his advancing years - and the experience he will bring could prove invaluable to their side.

A lone win against Necaxa is the only victory they can count this term so far, but they are also yet to end up on the wrong end of a scoreline.

Three draws won't help them sustain a title challenge however, and the hosts will be keen to buck that trend with a three-point haul this week.

Predicted Pumas starting XI: Rodríguez, Freire, Galindo, Bennevendo, Meritao, López, Huerta, del Prete, Salvio, Dinenno; González.

PositionMazatlán roster
Goalkeepers Vikonis, Gutiérrez
Defenders Noguiera, Vidrio, Vargas, Alanís, Colula, Cedillo, Sandoval, Padilla
Midfielders Orona, Meraz, Colman, Fabián, Bello, Illescas, Intriago, A. López, Montaño
Forwards Bárcenas, Sosa, Benedetti, Sánchez, Rubio, Sansores, G. López, Camacho

Rooted near the foot of the table, it has been a miserable start to the season for Mazatlán, who are under increasing pressure to turn their campaign around and fast.

Signs of improvement have come in their last two games of course, and they do look a far cry from the side that shipped four against Puebla to start the term.

But they need to turn those close calls into big wins within games, and force their way through to a victory sooner rather than later.

Predicted Mazatlán starting XI: Colula, Vidrio, Orona, Sandoval, Intriago, Meraz, Benedetti, Fabián, Bárcenas, Sosa; Vikonis.
