The hosts are hoping to have a better campaign this time around and will be confident of getting three points against a team they are used to beating
Ricardo Ferretti will be hoping to get his tenure as Juarez coach off to a strong start when they take on Toluca.
The Chihuaha club had a disappointing Clausura campaign, finishing third bottom in the table with just 15 points.
They have a difficult start to the 2021 Apertura season, however, as they take on a Toluca team that reached the playoffs in last season’s Clausura.
