The Torreon side currently has 4 points and is second of their group. Although not mathematically qualified, only a disastrous defeat against Chivas would leave them out of contention for the title.


Chivas will look to finish top of the table
Guadalajara have made a solid group stage in the Copa MX this year. With 6 points in 3 games, they sit above Santos Laguna and Correcaminos.
