THE TEAM NEWS

MONTERREY

  • Monterrey’s disappointing season continued last week with a 2-0 away defeat at Toluca, and that result extended their losing run to two games. Rayados remain the lone winless team in the Clausura, as they have registered just three points out of 24 available thus far.
  • Rayados should be heavily depleted ahead of this contest since defenders Lionel Vangioni and Cesar Montes, playmaker Carlos Rodriguez, and winger Ake Arnaud Loba are all listed as out. Dorlan Pabon has been listed as a game-time decision, and Aviles Hurtado remains a long-term absentee.

Expected starting XI: Marcelo Barovero; John Stefan Medina, Nicolas Sanchez, Jose Maria Basanta, Daniel Parra; Miguel Layun, Matias Kranevitter, Celso Ortiz, Jesus Gallardo; Vincent Janssen, Rogelio Funes Mori

ATLETICO SAN LUIS

  • Atletico San Luis have posted three wins, three draws and two defeats so far and are coming off a 3-0 home loss to Juarez to make it two losses in their last four games.
  • Right-back Matias Catalan missed last week’s match and he should be listed as questionable ahead of this contest. Striker Ian Gonzalez was sent off in the previous match and, as a result, he received an automatic one-match ban.

Expected starting XI: Carlos Felipe Rodriguez; Diego Saul Nava, Dionicio Escalante, Luis Fernando Leon, Luis Ricardo Reyes; Camilo Mayada, Javier Cortes, Luis Felipe Gallegos; German Berterame, Nicolas Ibanez, Diego Hernandez Jimenez

THE PREDICTION

Atletico San Luis have averaged 1.5 goals conceded per game this season, they have lost two of their last four games, and own a -3 goal differential thus far. That said, San Luis could easily be considered as favourites ahead of this contest. Monterrey are winless in the Clausura, sit dead last in the standings, own the league’s second-worst defensive record with 14 goals conceded and are extremely depleted at both ends of the pitch. Monterrey have been seriously under-performing, and San Luis should be able to win here.
