Chivas USA Coach Preki makes two changes from the team that lost to the Columbus Crew last time out, Claudio Suarez making his first start of the season in defense in place of Shavar Thomas (who is on the bench) and Sasha Victorine starting in midfield for Atiba Harris. Harris suffered from knee pain all week long, club officials said.
Chivas USA XI: Thornton, Trujillo, Suarez, Talley, Jazic, Victorine, Marsch, Nagamura, Stepanovic, Galindo, Lillingston.
None of Tigres’ recent signings, including U.S.-born Edgar Castillo, have dressed for the opening SuperLiga game.
Pretty spotty attendance; not many Tigres fans either. This is the first competitive game ever between the two sides.
BTW, both Suarez and Lillingston are former Tigres players.
