Where Can I Watch?
Why bet on Monterrey?
Monterrey is always a candidate to fight for the Liga MX title, thanks to having one of the most complete squads. Despite an irregular start, they have gradually found their form.
In their last match, they overcame Tijuana 3-1, thanks to goals by Rogelio Funes Mori, Jesús Gallardo, and Víctor López, occupying third place in the table.
At home, they have scored 12 of the 23 points they have in the table and so far have only lost on one occasion, against Cruz Azul being their only defeat at the BBVA stadium.
Even the ‘Rayados’ forward line has not been giving the numbers expected, as they have scored 19 goals, being outside the five best offenses in the competition. Their best scorer is Funes Mori, with five goals.
However, it is a team with interesting players, starting with the Argentine midfielder Maxi Meza, who has two goals and two assists in the league, and the Mexican international Jesús ‘Tecatito’ Corona.
Stefan Medina, Sergio Canales, Jordi Cortizo, Edson Gutiérrez, and Erick Aguirre will not be available due to injury, while coach Fernando Ortiz could count on Rodrigo Aguirre and Germán Berterame.
Why Bet on Club América?
Club América only lost one match in Liga MX and that was their debut against Juárez, after which André Jardine’s team found the path to victory, becoming the best team in the Mexican Apertura tournament.
The last presentation of the ‘Águilas’ ended with a close 4-3 victory over Santos Laguna, thanks to conversions by Henry Martín, Jonathan Rodríguez, Julián Quiñones and Alejandro Zendejas. Quiñones and Chilean Diego Valdés are the team’s top scorers with six goals each.
Before the start of Matchday 14, the only opponents who have taken points from the team from the capital since their debut are Atlas, León, and Toluca. In addition, with 22 goals scored, they are the best offense in the league and these numbers can continue to improve, as Henry Martín has left his discomfort behind and is ready to start if the coach wishes.
Another point to highlight for the ‘Cremas’ is that they have not lost away from the Azteca stadium, as they have won three games and tied the remaining one. Only on Toluca’s field, they could not take the three points.
Winger Kevin Álvarez will be available for América and Chilean attacking midfielder Diego Valdés is the main casualty, as he will not return for the rest of the season due to injury.
