PREVIEW: WEEKEND MEXICAN ACTION
Jose Francisco Torres returns with Pachuca as they visit Cruz Azul while Edgar Castillo looks for increased playing time as San Luis hosts Morelia.
Cruz Azul - Pachuca
Jose Francisco Torres and Pachuca will have the opportunity to recover from their embarrassing loss last week to Santos when they visit Cruz Azul on Saturday.
Recovery will, however, be difficult to come by as Pachuca are facing a strong Cruz Azul team, also looking to rebound from a disappointing lost to Pumas on Sunday.
Torres should be available to play this weekend although it is not yet known whether he will regain his starting spot. Herculez Gomez and Marco Vidal will also look to get minutes as they have been used as second half substitutes this season.
Pachuca will have to contend with the potent Cruz Azul offense led by Emmanuel Villa and Javier Orozco.
Both teams' entire rosters should be available to play on Saturday.
San Luis – Morelia
Edgar Castillo and San Luis look to rebound from their loss last week to Chivas when they host Morelia. This game will be of importance to the home team, as with one point on the season, relegation is starting to become a possibility.
Edgar Castillo will continue to make his case for the starting spot as he has impressed in several of his appearances as a second half substitute.
San Luis will have to contend with a Morelia attack that scored six goals against Queretaro last week.
Both teams should have full rosters available to choose from on Saturday.
Sammy Ochoa and Estudiantes will not play until September 5th.
