Monterrey vs Pumas for the Mexican Liga MX Apertura championship match on Friday at BBVA Bancomer Stadium.
Match corresponding to day 7 of the Liga Mx Apertura, Monterrey and Pumas will face each other at the BBVA Bancomer Stadium, in a match that nobody will want to lose.
Monterrey, the hosts, have fallen several positions after losing last day to Santos Laguna as a visitor, the Rayados, are in 9th position , with 9 points, have won 3 games and lost 3, but the important thing is that at home they have won their 2 games, 3-2 against Leon and 2-0 against Toluca, all not been easy rivals for this tournament start.
Now they have to add 3 and get back into the fight of the 8 best, although it should be mentioned that Pumas, Cruz Azul and Monterrey, are tied with 9 points, what differentiates the positions, in this case, are the goals.
Pumas, the felines in this tournament are the same as the Rayados, because they have achieved 3 wins and 3 losses and have the same score, as I mentioned before, Pumas is better positioned in the table because it has + 2 goal difference while Monterrey has 0.
The visiting team as an essential factor, was one of the worst teams in the closing tournament because it only achieved 1 victory and lost 7 games, terrible the campaign they did as visitors and in this opening, in just 3 rounds they already have 2 defeats in 3 games
Because of how things are presented and how both teams come, it is logical that they both need to score, but this time, Rayados has more responsibility when playing at home,.
Pumas will at least try to steal a point, but it will be very complicated against a rival which as the host is one of the best.
Finally, the last 5 times they met at Bancomer Stadium, Monterrey won 4 times and drew one.
Pumas has failed to beat Rayados as a visitor since 2013.
