Sammy Ochoa and Estudiantes head to Guadalajara to take on Chivas in a make-up match from week four of the Mexican Apertura at Estadio Omnilife.
Ochoa will likely be tabbed for either a starting spot up front or one of the first attacking options off the bench for the visitors.
The match was postponed due to Chivas' involvement in the Copa Libertadores where they fell to Internacional Porto Alegre of Brazil in the two-leg final.
Sunday's contest is a match-up of the two teams bringing up the rear in Group One. Chivas enter with a meager five points while Estudiantes are even worse with a paltry four points on theseason.
Each club is also coming off of draws that did little to inspire confidence heading into this affair.
Estudiantes coach Miguel Herrera will hope to see some more offense generated by his club and a pairing between Ochoa and Mauro Cejas may provide that spark.
Juan Carlos Leaño is suspended for the visitors and will be unable to feature while Oswaldo Alanis is sidelined with an injury.
Outside of Alberto Medina who is listed as doubtful, Chivas will have a full squad available.
