C.D. Guadalajara vs Manchester United Match Preview
Estadio Chivas, Guadalajara
Saturday 30th, July 2010
The last game of the Manchester United’s 2010 tour of the Americas will be a stop in Guadalajara, Mexico to help Club Deportivo Guadalajara inaugurate their brand new 45,000 seater Estadio Chivas. What better way to inaugurate your new stadium than with the help of one of the most popular teams of the world.
C.D. Guadalajara are better known by their nickname Chivas and they have never been relegated from the Mexican Premier Division and they only field players born in Mexico and they do not have a single foreigner in their squad. Still, they are the most successful Mexican club in international football. Beat that!
The match is part of the deal that landed the Mexican star Javier ‘Chicarito’ Hernandez in Old Trafford. He is expected to play against his former teammates in this fixture after debuting for United as a substitute against MLS All-Stars – he also scored in that fixture.
Chicarito joined United after the Kansas City Wizards upset for their last game in North America. Can his teammates pull off another upset on the inauguration of their new stadium? It will be quite an openning for sure.
