Tigres and América will star in a stellar duel on matchday 11 of the Closing Tournament of Liga MX, in a clash that has practically become another Aztec football Classic. The clash that will be played at the University Stadium of the Autonomous University of Nuevo León, will present some novelties.
The Tigres come from beating Necaxa last day and they also added a goalless draw against Orlando City in the Concachampions. For his part, the bluecream come from falling thrashed in the Azteca against Pachuca and they have the hard task of redeeming themselves against those led by Chima Ruiz.
Changes in the clash between Tigres and Águilas
The main morbidity of this clash will undoubtedly be the presence of Diego Lainez in the Tigres lineup, since they will be facing their former team, with whom they could not reach an agreement to wear their colors after their unsuccessful passage through European territory. In addition to this ingredient, Tano Ortiz confirmed the loss of Óscar Jiménez.
Jiménez will be relegated to the substitute bench and Luis Malagón will enter in his placethe errors have reduced the performance of the goalkeeper who was called to take over from Memo Ochoa, but the truth is that he has not done very well in this Clausura Tournament, which is why Ortiz will lean towards Malagón.
Possible lineups Tigres vs América
Despite being available André-Pierre Gignac does not aim to start with TigresIt should be remembered that the Frenchman has scored 12 times against America.
These would be the 11 chosen by Chima Ruiz to open for Tigres: Nahuel Guzmán, Garza, Samir, Lichnovsky, Aquino, Pizarro, Carioca, Gorriarán, Córdova, Quiñones and Ibáñez.
On the part of América, as mentioned above, the main novelty is that of Malagón in goal. This is how Tano Ortiz would align the cream-blue squad. Luis Malagón, Miguel Layún, Israel Reyes, Araujo, S. Reyes, Suárez, Sánchez, Fidalgo, Rodríguez, Martín and Valdés.
