Even though he won’t be making his debut on Friday, Ronaldinho’s mere presence at the Estadio La Corregidora has ensured a sell out.
Queretaro made front pages across the globe when they signed Ronaldinho a week ago, and after being presented to the media on Friday morning, he’s expected to be presented to the fans at halftime of Queretaro’s match this evening against Puebla. It’s a crucial game for Queretaro, who are winless in their last three matches and are slipping out of the playoff places.
Meanwhile on Saturday, Daniel Guzman will begin his time at Club Tijuana taking on fifth-placed Pachuca on the road. Tijuana have won just once in seven matches, the last draw ending in Cesar Farias’ dismissal.
Elsewhere in Liga MX action this weekend, Santos Laguna host the two-time reigning Liga MX champions, Club Leon, second-place Monterrey host Chivas de Guadalajara, while Club America head to Guadalajara to take on Leones Negros.
