Going in the game against Cruz Azul, Monterrey will be missing Joao Rojas due to cruciate ligament injury. In the previous game, Monterrey seemed completely off-color with no such intent to score and get over the line. With a 4-4-2 attack formation, much will depend on the likes of Romo, Ortiz, and Meza. Monterrey should also work on the penalty takers as Berterame missed a goal scoring opportunity in the 87th minute. If German Berterame had scored, Monterrey would have been in the game.
