First Leg Result: Monterrey 5-0 Sporting KC
Monterrey come into the second leg with a commanding 5-0 lead after a big win at home in the first leg. However, don’t expect to see quite as much fireworks during the game later today. Diego Alonso will almost certainly be tempted to park the bus in an effort to advance in the CCL, much as the team did in the 1-0 loss at Atlanta United earlier in the tournament.
The only reason that Alonso might not play extremely conservatively is because of the drubbing that los Rayados took over the weekend against Toluca. The ugly 5-1 scoreline has left many fans quite disgruntled with Alonso, and a big win on the road against Sporting KC would help to quell the discontent, if only for a night.
We do know at least one thing about the potential line-up that Alonso will go with against Sporting KC, as the club announced that Jonathan Gonzalez is out for three weeks with what the club is calling, “una lesión miofascial grado I en el tercio medio de bíceps femoral izquierdo.”
Sporting KC will likely go with a fairly strong starting XI, so expect the hosts to score a goal or two, but otherwise this should be a fairly comfortable aggregate win for Monterrey, as a Clásico Regio CCL final is almost certain to happen now.
