Wondering why the headline above says 'expected lineups' and not just 'lineups'? Because this is Mexican football and nothing is ever set in stone. These lineups come via the Mexican football federation, and yet they still cannot be trusted as 100 percent accurate. If you're not already sold on the potential entertainment value of the unpredictable and outrageous nature of FMF, I'm not sure what to tell you. Tonight is the first leg of the 2011 Apertura Liguilla playoff final between Santos Laguna and UANL Tigres. Here are the expected lineups.
Santos Laguna Lineup (4-4-2): Sanchez; Estrada, Hoyos, Baloy, Ibañez; Suarez, Salinas, Rodriguez, Ludueña; Quintero, Peralta
UANL Tigres Lineup (4-4-1-1): Palos; Torres Nilo, Ayala, Juninho, Jimenez; Alvarez, Viniegra, Salcido, Danilinho; Lobos; Mancilla
Kickoff is at 9:30 pm ET. You can catch the game on Telefutura in the USA.
