Cruz Azul vs. Club Leon, 2012 Liguilla: Lineups

Cruz Azul's team is as expected for their near must-win Liguilla match against Club Leon, but there are some mild surprises in the visitors' team. There's nothing outrageous in Gustavo Matosas' team, but they've made one switch, opting to solidify their midfield by bringing in Hernan Burbano for striker Matias Britos.

Cruz Azul lineup (4-2-3-1): Jose Corona; Julio Cesar Dominguez, Alejandro Castro, Jair Pereira, Gerardo Flores; Israel Castro, Gerardo Torrado; Alejandro Vela, Christian Gimenez, Javier Aquino; Mariano Pavone

Club Leon lineup (4-2-3-1): Christian Martínez; Luis Delgado, Jonny Magallón, Ignacio González, Edwin Hernández; Jose Vázquez; Carlos Peña; Ivan Loboa, Hernan Burbano, Luis Montes; Nelson Maz

Both teams have some notably strong attacking bench options. Javier Orozco and Omar Bravo can come on and change the game if Cruz Azul are struggling, while Edgar Pacheco and Matias Britos are potent attacking options off the bench for Leon. The man to watch in this one is probably Christian Gimenez, who can score at any time, from anywhere.
