Juarez's Man To Watch: Diego Rolán
The Uruguayan striker only scored three goals in the 11 games in which he participated last season. However, his presence was important for Bravos' offensive system.

This second season is expected to be better as he has now adapted to Mexican football. The player, who belongs to Deportivo La Coruña, has plenty of pace and techical quality to help his team.

Gudalajara's Man To Watch: Jose Juan Macías
With the departure of Alan Pulido to MLS, Macías is expected to be the starting striker for Chivas.

The 20-year-old who went out on loan to León for a year scored 19 goals wearing the green shirt.

On his return to Chivas, his finishing capacity is one of the main ingredients needed for a good season.

Bravos' Preseason
Bravos also played a total of four games during their preseason.

They defeated Puebla's U20 squad by 7-0, Correcaminos by 4-2 and Querétaro's U20 by 3-0.

However, they had a losing effort against Querétaro's main squad in a match that ended 1-0.

Chivas' Preseason
Chivas showed good form in the preseason. Their four preparation games ended in victories over Venados (0-1), Tampico (3-1), Leones Negros (1-0) and Necaxa (0-2).
Last meeting
In their most recent match, Chivas was able to overcome an early goal from Dario Lezcano and earned a 2-1 win at Estadio Olímpico Benito Juárez.

Guadalajara's goals were scored by Javier Eduardo López and Jesús Molina.

Bravos made few signings
Gabriel Caballero's side was joined by Paraguayan midfielder William Mendieta and Mexican striker Brian Rubio for this 2020 Clausura.


Chivas' new faces!
Luis Fernando Tena will count with plenty of new options thanks to the arrival of Uriel Antuna, José Juan Vázquez, José Juan Macías, Víctor Guzmán, Cristian Calderón, Jesús Angulo, Alexis Peña, Ronaldo Cisneros and José Madueña.

Only Madueña is unavailable due to still having a small thigh injury.

The Chivas Guadalajara vs FC Juarez match will be played at the Estadio Akron, in Zapopan, Mexico. The kick-off is scheduled at 8:00pm ET.
