Monterrey - Coming off a Win Against Queretaro (WWWWW)
Going in the matchup, Queretaro is coming off back to back wins in the contest. In the previous game, Monterrey won over Queretaro (2-0), in which Rogelio Funes and Arturo Gonzalez scored back-to-back goals in a quick period of 10 minutes. With Mori and Berterame leading the prime attack, and Ortiz and Romo controlling the middle attack, Monterrey looks one of the first teams in this year’s Liga MX. Talking about goal scoring, Monterrey has scored 2 or more goals in 6 of its last 10 home games. Secondly, it averages 1.50 goals per game in the last 10 home fixtures. Monterrey’s defense is also on point as they have a conceding average of just 0.60 goals per game.
Club Necaxa - Has Failed to Win Any of the Last 9 Away Fixtures (WLDLW)
Going in the match against Monterrey, Necaxa will be feeling confident after its decent win over Club Universidad Nacional (3-1). In the previous game, Edgar Mendez was outstanding, scoring back-to-back goals in the 4th and 6th minute’s of play. Next, Agustin Oliveros and Ricardo Monreal teamed up to net another goal in the 84th minute of play. If we look at Necaxa, it has performed quite well in the last outing and has reasonable match winners in the lineup. With the likes of Segovia, Van Rankin, Esquivel, and Batista in the lineup, Necaxa could upset Monterrey. However, much will depend on how these individuals perform in away setting, as Necaxa has failed to win any of its last 9 away fixtures. Moreover, Necaxa has also conceded over 2 goals in 6 of its last 10 away outings. Necaxa averages just 0.90 goals in the last 10 away fixtures, which is certainly under-par and seems unrealistic against Monterrey.
