This Friday El Rebaño Sagrado will face Los Cañoneros with its full squad, although not all players are at the level that has been expected. With the complete adaptation of their last reinforcement, Santiago Ormeño, it will be difficult for him to be taken into account as a starter, for this reason the red and white coach will use his offensive options such as José ‘Tepa’ González and Ángel Zaldívar.

Chivas de Guadalajara have not had their best performance at the beginning of the Apertura 2022 Tournament, after a 0-0 draw against Pachuca the previous week, so tonight will be a test for the future and Ricardo Cadena will have to demonstrate all his qualities as a coach to get the team out of the slump in which it has been submerged in recent years.

The Rebaño Sagrado is still missing some important players for this match, which will be their third away game, this time against the Sinaloans. The coach had just two days to fine-tune details that allowed him to define his starting 11 for the match, taking into account the most painful absence of José Juan Macías.

For this vital duel in the ‘Perla del Pacífico’ and for the third time in the competition away from home, Cadena will try to keep most of his starters from the last game to try to get three fundamental points for their aspirations. Miguel Jiménez will play in goal; in defense Luis Olivas with Gilberto Sepúlveda, Gilberto Orozco, Alan Mozo and Cristian Calderón; in the midfield there will be Fernando Beltrán, Fernando González and Sebastián Pérez Bouquet; up front Alexis Vega with Ángel Zaldívar.

It will not be an easy tournament for Guadalajara due to the few additions they have made, but also because Cadena's work is being closely watched by the board of directors, as it should be remembered that the sporting director, Ricardo Peláez, also met with other coaches before giving the young Mexican tactician a permanent contract and if poor results prevail the situation could change quickly.
