LigaMX Chivas v Pachuca, Sat 8/19 Only on Telemundo

MIAMI – August 25, 2020 – Telemundo Deportes’ exclusive coverage of LigaMX’s Chivas de Guadalajara continues this week with the upcoming match against C.F. Pachuca in what will be Matchday 7 of this year’s Guard1anes 2020 tournament.

With Pachuca jumping in the league rankings following Monday night’s win over Mazatlán, Saturday’s match in Guadalajara proves critical for the Rebaño Sagrado to reclaim their path to victory.

Saturday’s match coverage will be led by five-time Emmy winner Andrés Cantor providing play-by-play commentary alongside the analysis of Mexican soccer star and Chivas de Guadalajara veteran, Manuel Sol. Making a return as the match’s field reporter is Chivas TV’s Arantza Fernandez.

Telemundo Deportes’ pre-match coverage will feature both team’s pre-game press conferences along with various player interviews including with Chivas defender, Gilberto Sepúlveda, and Chivas Femenil midfielder, Nicole Perez. There will also be exclusive giveaways, and an opportunity for fans to participate in the network’s pre-game analysis via social media using #ChivasenTelemundo. Telemundo Deportes’ pre/post-game and halftime coverage will be led by Emmy-award winning expert Miguel Gurwitz alongside the analysis of Mexican soccer legend Carlos Hermosillo, who spent the final year of his club career with Chivas de Guadalajara in 2001, with segments led by Titulares y Más anchors, Ana Jurka and Karim Mendiburu.
