Club America vs. Chivas Guadalajara, 2012 Super Clasico: Lineups

Club America and Chivas Guadalajara aren't pulling any punches for Saturday's Super Clasico matchup. Both teams have gone conservative and with five-man back lines at times this year, but they've come out with very attacking formations for this match. Don't expect either side to keep a clean sheet.

Chivas have handed a start to Marco Fabian, who was a slight injury doubt heading into this match. Their lineup looks like a 4-4-2, but Miguel Angel Ponce can play wide or in the center, while Fabian can play wide or as an attacking midfielder. Their lineup is probably a 4-4-2 with wingers who will cut in, but it could end up being a formation with no wingers at all. America will rely heavily on Rosinei to do the job of two men in the center.

Club America starting lineup (4-1-3-2): Hugo González; Adrián Aldrete, Aquivaldo Mosquera, Diego Reyes, Paul Aguilar; Rosinei; Rubens Sambueza, Daniel Montenegro, Juan Carlos Medina; Cristian Benitez

Chivas Guadalajara starting lineup (4-4-2): Luis Ernesto Michel; Victor Perales, Omar Esparza, Hector Reynoso, Miguel Angel Ponce; Marco Fabian, Jorge Enriquez, Paulo Araujo, Jesús Sánchez; Erick Torres, Rafael Márquez Lugo

Kickoff is at 6 p.m. ET on Univision.
