A week after their debut in Liga MX, they work in El Nido before their departure to La Corregidora where they will play the opening match.
The substitute goalkeeper of the azulcrema team will be in charge of guarding the goal during the first dates of the Apertura 2021 tournament, this, because Guillermo Ochoa He will represent Mexico in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games and will be absent between three and five dates of the Mexican championship, after his participation and respective vacations.
The multifunctional right-back is one of the benchmarks of Americanism and will be a captain without a badge, for the moment he will start the right wing at the start of the contest in the absence of Jorge Sanchez, who is in the national team, which will give him a guideline to gain confidence once again in the club and the coaching staff.
Everything seems to indicate that Solari has made up his mind and Santiago Cacéres will be one of the starting central defenders for the Apertura 2021, although the competition is difficult with the experienced Bruno valdez Y Emanuel AguileraIt seems that the Uruguayan will have the confidence to be stable, while the pair of South Americans will have to compete for a place.
Youth and quality have made the Uruguayan central defender attract the attention of foreigners, so if a juicy offer does not arrive for him, the azulcrema directive will not release him easily, even more so when he has already proven to be a diamond in gross and has a long-term contract with the club, until 2024.
The multifunctional right winger had a good tournament close the previous semester, so much so that he has earned the trust of Santiago Solari, who has preferred him over a nominal forward as Federico Viñas and has made him double on offense with Roger Martinez during preseason.

Therefore, for this tournament at the door, he will surely be one of the headlines, coupled with the absences of several of his teammates on offense such as Sebastian Cordova Y Henry Martin.
