After the resounding fall against Club León on matchday 5 of Grita México 2021, a sector of the Chivas fans has requested the dismissal of Víctor Manuel Vucetich as team coach. At a press conference, ‘El Rey Midas’ ruled out his departure from the Sacred Herd after the loss to La Fiera and said he was powerless because his team is not responding to the challenges. The fans of the rojiblanco team have suggested that Jaime Lozano take the reins of Chiverío.
In this sense, the duel against Rayados this weekend will be vital for Vucetich’s future as Guadalajara coach.
It was expected that Héctor Moreno, one of Rayados’s bombastic reinforcements for this season, could already be ready to play these days with his new club. However, the player of the Mexican National Team, who suffered an injury in the 2021 Gold Cup, will continue to have no activity with the Monterrey team since he suffered. It is not yet known when the player will be able to have his debut with the Albiazules.
So far César Montes and Sebastián Vegas have been in charge of the plant and have done an excellent job in this position.
Monterrey (4-3-3): Esteban Andrada; Jesús Gallardo, Stefan Medina, César Montes, Sebastián Vegas; Matías Kranevitter, Carlos Rodríguez, Alfonso González; Maximiliano Meza, Rogelio Funes Mori and Duván Vergara.
Chivas (4-4-2): José Antonio Rodríguez; Jesús Sánchez, Antonio Briseño, Gilberto Sepúlveda, Alejandro Mayorga; Uriel Antuna, Fernando Beltrán, Sergio Flores, Jesús Ricardo Angulo; Ángel Zaldívar and Alexis Vega.
Chivas is registering a nightmare tournament and Rayados de Monterrey continues to rise. The rojiblanco team has lost confidence and the return of the Olympic medalists has been of no use to them: Alexis Vega, Uriel Antuna, Jesús Angulo and Fernando Beltrán. It seems that the speech is running out for Víctor Manuel Vucetich and a defeat against the regios could determine his departure.
Prediction: Rayados 3 – 1 Chivas
