Player to watch: Cesar Huerta

Huerta wasn’t among the starters for his club in the opening Liga MX fixture as he was still occupied with international duty for Mexico. However, he should be back for matchday 2 and we expect to see him among the starters. After all, he made 37 appearances for his club last season. This means his place among the starting XI is secured.

Second player to watch: Julio Gonzalez

Gonzalez had a decent match on the 7th of July. He did concede a goal, but he also made two crucial saves for his team. He will bench Alcala for the remaining of the campaign if he continues performing so adequately.
