Team news & rosters

Position Chivas roster
Goalkeepers Gudino, Rodriguez, Jimenez
Defenders Mayorga, Sepulveda, Briseno, Olivas, Ponce, Sanchez, Mier, Aguayo, Calderon
Midfielders Molina, Brizuela, Angulo, Beltran, Torres, Flores, Carlos Cisneros
Forwards Huerta, Antuna, Zaldivar, Vega, Godinez, Ronaldo Cisneros, Peralta

Marcelo Michel Leano hasn't seen his side string together a consistent run of results for quite a while now, but that lack of form does not mean they will fold easily against their rivals.

Defeat against Queretaro has left them looking to get back into the swing of winning things again, with Alexis Vega back fit and firing after his injury layoff.

Predicted Chivas starting XI: Gudino; Sepulveda, Briseno, Olivas, Mayorga; Beltran, Flores, Antuna, Angulo, Calderon; Vega.

Position Atlas roster
Goalkeepers Hernandes, Vargas
Defenders Nervo, Abella, Santamaria, Aguirre, Reyes, Barbossa, Chala, Gomez, Vazquez, Angulo
Midfielders Zaldivar, Maroni, Garnica, Marquez, Ortega, Rocha
Forwards Furch, Torres, Troyansky, Trejo, Quinones, Herrera

Diego Cocca will be more than aware that, despite a superior league standing, he needs to buck a derby trend that has seen La Furia go winless in this clash since 2018.
