You know that things are going good when a draw on the road is disappointing, however Santos Laguna (7W 4D 2L)’s draw last week against Pachuca (4W 4D 5L) has that feel to it. They’ll look to bounce back with a win against Monterrey (7W 2D 4L) to kick off Week 14.

Santos has reason to feel confident. They have one loss at home in all of 2018 - a Week 16 loss in the Clausura to Pumas. They also have the tandem of Julio Furch and Jonathan Rodríguez, who sit tied for first place and fourth place in goal scoring with ten and seven goals respectively.

Monterrey comes to Torreón not having won on the road since beating Lobos BUAP (3W 3D 7L) back on August 22nd. They did defeat Pachuca in Copa MX play on penalties on Tuesday, and the players from that match may have some heavy legs from the match and subsequent travel.

Monterrey doesn’t have a whole lot in the way of depth at the moment thanks to the rash of injuries that has beset the club. Jonathan Urretaviscaya and Arturo González are all definitely out, and José Maria Basanta, Jonathan González, César Montes, and Rodolfo Pizarro are all battling injuries and questionable for the match.

It will be a tough ask for Rayados, but they do have quality where it counts. Marcelo Barovero has had a good season in goal, while Dorlan Pabón leads Liga MX with six assists and the ever dangerous Nicolás Sánchez has five goals. They’re also just two points behind Santos in the standings, which is perhaps some added incentive against Los Guerreros.

Still, Santos have momentum and home field advantage. It should be a good game underneath the Friday night lights in Coahuila.
