Monterrey will hope to get back to winning ways as they take on a Chivas de Guadalajara team looking to climb the standings with an eye for the Liguilla positions.

Monterrey have stumbled lately, as they have missed Rogelio Funes Mori’s goals and presence up front, although it’s been their usually dependable defense that has been allowing late goals to snatch defeat or draws from the jaws of victory lately.

Diego Alonso hasn’t been rotating his lineups very much between the Liga MX and the Copa MX matches, and it’s shown late in matches, especially in the team’s loss in the altitude of Puebla.

Most of the Monterrey lineup, however, was spared international duty, with Rodolfo Pizarro out of Mexico duty with injury, only Jesus Gallardo and Jonathan Gonzalez getting playing time with El Tri.

Chivas has been a red-hot team for a few weeks now, and a win at Monterrey would do a lot to increase their chances of reaching the Liguilla after missing out on the last two seasons. For los Rayados, a win would see them cement their status in the top tier of the table, as they currently are in second place, despite the indifferent form they have had over the past few weeks.

Despite rumors of additional reinforcements, Rayados did not add another striker before the end of the window, and so we’ll see how much longer Funes Mori is still out for. If he comes back in the next few weeks, this poor run of form might be forgotten as the team goes towards the Liguilla. If he’s out for awhile longer, than other players will have to step up for los Rayados to challenge for a Liga MX title.
