The Liga MX Guard1anes Tournament 2021 bring us another exciting midweek game between Querétaro and Chivas Guadalajara, two teams facing a similar situation in the tournament.

These two aren't shining in the current league. Both find themselves at the mid-table, not an ideal place for a club like Chivas, whose aspirations are always higher, as they wish to be upper in the standings. However, it is true that both are inside the pre-playoff spots.
While the visitors arrive to this clash after beating Pumas in the last round, Querétaro were demolished by Mazatlán on the road. Héctor Altamirano's team need to improve their game as they have more defeats than wins so far, and returning home provides the opportunity to bounce back after some games without victories.

Querétaro vs Chivas: Storylines and Head-to-Head
These two sides head up to this game under different moods. The visitors, although they don't find themselves at the top spots, where they want to be every year, have been in a quite good form lately as they were undefeated in the last four games. Victor Vucetich's team needs to keep it this way and this game is another exam to pass.
Querétaro, on the other hand, has been struggling while their next rivals were doing well. The squad coached by Héctor Altamirano couldn't win in their last three games, but they do have a good record at home, where they hold five matches undefeated. Now they are back at their venue looking to strengthen again and to bounce back from recent disappointments.
However, the rivals mean a big challenge for the hosts. That's because Chivas has an impressive ten-game unbeaten streak against Querétaro in Liga MX. This will be a serious task for both, but even more for the Gallos Blancos, who will look to finally beat Chivas.
