How does it affect Liga MX if Conmebol is played on Thursday? – David Medrano


Conmebol’s matchday 12 heading to Qatar will be played on Thursday, with which several Mexican clubs will be affected, since there are 26 South American players who were called to their national teams for this FIFA Date.

Mazatlan and Atlas They play on Friday and 24 hours before Camilo Vargas will be with Colombia against Ecuador and Santamaría with Peru against Argentina, while the Mazatlan Nicolás Díaz will be with Chile against Venezuela, which makes it almost impossible for them to play on Friday.

On the FIFA Date, clubs such as Rayados de Monterrey and León were affected by it, the return of the players Friday night or Saturday morning, which is very difficult to take them into account and now especially that next Tuesday they play double date in Liga MX.


In qualifying matches for Qatar 2022, FIFA allows up to 12 substitutes, of which two must be goalkeepers, which means that each team can present a roster of 23 players per game.

In the case of Mexico, the call for the duels against Canada, Honduras and El Salvador was 28 players, which forced Gerardo Martino to send five elements per game to the rostrum. In the first match the chosen ones were: Jonathan Orozco, Johan Vásquez, Henry Martín, Osvaldo Rodríguez and Sebastián Córdova. For the second duel, Henry and Johan were once again sent to the rostrum along with Cota, “Cata” and Jorge Sánchez. The suspension of César Montes will open a place for Johan to be on the bench, while in the case of Henry the problem is the excess of offenses in the call.


The director of CODE, Jalisco, Fernando Ortega confirmed the interest of the Jalisco authorities in having an elimination match for the National Team in Guadalajara and acknowledged that the negotiations with the Directorate of National Teams are on the right track, although they have not yet reached an agreement. .

The intention is for it to be one of the first two next year, either on January 30 against Costa Rica or on February 2 against Panama. At the end of the month the decision will be made as the Federation has to notify FIFA which will host these two matches.

It should be remembered that last year the Government of Jalisco held the Concacaf Pre-Olympic and next week they organize a friendly for the Women’s National Team in Tepatitlán against Argentina, which proves that the relations between the two parties are good.
