Rayados will have a very important week in his season. The team led by Javier Aguirre will play the second leg of the Concacaf Champions League and the Clásico Regio with a difference of three days. Monterrey faces a difficult challenge, especially if its recent results are taken into account. The Sultana del Norte team has been in the MX League for four games without knowing victory.
The Albiazules will visit the Sky Machine at the Azteca Stadium to look for their ticket to the grand final of the Concachampions. America advanced to this phase after beating the Philadelphia Union of the MLS. This will be the 13th final among Mexican clubs in the last 19 years. Monterrey is going through a difficult time and the project of ‘Vasco’ Aguirre is increasingly being questioned by the press and fans.
In this sense, the Rayados need to qualify for the final of the continental tournament to have more peace of mind. In the first leg against the Blue Machine, the Monterrey team beat the cement workers by the smallest difference, with a goal from Maximiliano Meza. During his visit to the Colossus of Santa Úrsula, Monterrey will try to maintain his advantage and enlarge it to get his ticket to the final and a place in the Club World Cup.
The game will take place this Thursday, September 16 at the Azteca Stadium at 9:00 p.m. Monterrey would come out with these eleven starting elements:
Goalkeeper: Esteban Andrada.
Defense: Sebastián Vegas, César Montes, Jesús Gallardo, Stefan Medina.
Media: Celso Ortiz, Carlos Rodríguez, Arturo González.
Forward: Duván Vergara, Rogelio Funes Mori and Maximiliano Meza.
