Big surprise in León's starting lineup! 'Nacho' González will begin the game for the home team! As a fun fact, the veteran defender has scored in all the finals that he has played with Club León.
León is a very efficient and powerful side when they play at their own Nou Camp. The last time they lost at home was on 30 November 2019 against Morelia 2-1 for the quarter-finals of the Clausura tournament. León failed to advance to the semif-finals and Ignacio Ambríz was already the head coach.
This is what happened in the first leg! León with 10-men snatch draw against Pumas in first leg of Guardianes final.
According to the rules of the Liga MX, the team that wins the final will have to score the highest number of goals in the two legs. There is no away goal advantage in this stage of the 2020 Guardianes tournament, so if the game ends in a draw, they will need to go to over time and if necessary penalty kicks.
Alfredo Talavera recovered from his injury just in time for the final of the 2020 Guardianes tournament between Pumas UNAM and Club León. Even though he was included in the roster for the first leg, it was the veteran goalkeeper who decided not to play, because he didn’t feel ready to play in goal. But tonight he feels ready and he will start against Club León.
This is the starting XI for Pumas UNAM! What a surprise after all Alfredo Talavera will start! The last time he played was on matchday 16 of the regular season.
The Nou Camp will receive León and Pumas for the second leg of the final of the 2020 Guardianes tournament.
Hello and welcome to Club León against Pumas, Liga MX Final, Leg 2 that will be played Sunday December 13th at León Stadium.
