Club America getting healthy ahead of Leg 2

New, 15 comments

Rubens Sambueza may have a dislocated shoulder, Dario Benedetto may be nursing a hamstring injury and Michael Arroyo may be coming off a leave of absence, but all could potentially be available for the second leg of Club America's CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal against the Seattle Sounders on Wednesday.

Sambueza dislocated his shoulder in Saturday's Liga MX match against UANL Tigres and is probably the least likely to play. He also had a pair of assists in the first leg against the Sounders.

Benedetto missed America's last two matches, but now appears ready to go. The Argentinian forward has been in a bit of a slump, though, having not scored a league goal since Nov. 28. Benedetto scored 10 Liga MX goals during the 2015 Apertura and had a hat trick in last year's CCL final. If he plays, he'd likely replace Darwin Quintero.

Arroyo, a midfielder, has also not played since the Feb. 20 match against Cruz Azul after taking a leave of absence to attend to his father's death.

Just for good measure, starting goalkeeper Moises Munoz made his return against Tigres after scratching his cornea against Cruz Azul.
