Draw your line

Guess what we're going to follow today?

The return leg of Chivas-River Plate's Copa Sudamericana quarterfinal series will be played tonight. Chivas hold a 2-1 advantage heading into the decisive second leg. The pressure will be on the Argentines to try and come out and attack but I wouldn't expect Chivas to play defensively.

Chivas were on their heels for much of the first leg but still held a 2-0 lead until a late PK. I'd expect Chivas to dictate terms early and, if I'm a betting man, I'd say Chivas gets a crucial early goal and holds off a late charge to win and reach the semifinals.

Here's how Cancha sees the starting lineups

Chivas: Hernandez; Solis, Reynoso, Mejia, Esparza; Pineda, Araujo, Moralez, Baez; Arellano, Santana.

River: Ojeda; Villagra, Quiroga, Cabral, Ferrari; Abelairas, Ahumada, Fernandez; Abreu, Buonanotte, Garcia.

omg, I can't believe Chivas is down 2-0 at the first half. River really brought it to them!
