Club América and Chivas drop starting XIs for Copa MX Súper Clásico

We’re less than one hour away from the first of two Súper Clásicos, with Club América and Chivas meeting in the Copa MX quarter-final.

The winner will face Xolos in the semis at the beginning of April.

Amongst several changes from the side that beat defeated Puebla, the biggest surprise is that 19-year-old José Clemente gets the start at left wing.

This is Clemente’s fifth start in the competition.

Meanwhile, Chivas makes three changes from their 0-0 draw with Querétaro, as goalkeeper Raúl Gudiño will take the night off as Miguel ‘Wacho’ Jiménez will step up.

Isaac Brizuela will also start from the bench as Ronaldo Cisneros will start in his place.
