| ¡Conoce a nuestro rival en @TheChampions! El día de mañana nos enfrentaremos al actual campeón de la MLS, @ATLUTD— Rayados (@Rayados) March 5, 2019
¡Te esperamos mañana en Casa para el #RayadosVsAtlanta! #RayadosEnConcacaf
Monterrey will face the reigning MLS Champions, Atlanta United, at the Estadio BBVA Bancomer tonight in the quarterfinals of the CONCACAF Champions League.
Both teams will be looking to advance in the tournament, and with the added bonus of league pride on the line: Atlanta United is the “best” that MLS has to offer, and Monterrey losing to any MLS team, even this one, might be too much for the average fan to swallow.
Los Rayados are sure to have the advantage at home, but the worry will be how the team will play with three important games in a week’s time. Besides both Concacaf Champions League matches against Atlanta, Monterrey will host eternal rivals Tigres on Saturday, in what will be probably the biggest match outside of the Liguilla at the Estadio BBVA Bancomer this season.
Atlanta had a little trouble away from home against Herediano, but roared back in fine fashion and won big in the second leg. However, they lost their MLS season opener against D.C. United, so they will come into the match looking to get the bad taste of a loss out of their mouth.
On the other side, los Rayados are coming off of an unlikely win over Chivas over the weekend, with both goals coming from Dorlan Pabon, on shots from what seemed like 40 yards out. It wasn’t always pretty, and Rogelio Funes Mori was even rested for part of the match, but this should be one of the better match-ups in the CCL, even though Monterrey will be expected to beat the American upstarts.
