Monterrey form and stats

Monterrey have played 8 Liga MX games at their own stadium so far this season, resulting in 4-3-1 (wins-draws-losses). Two home wins in a row for Monterrey bring valid hopes of a third.

Monterrey manager J. Aguirre Onaindía and his team return home after a 1-1 draw away versus Necaxa in the Liga MX. Prior to that, an away loss at Santos Laguna.

Monterrey's goalie Hugo Gonzalez played a big part in securing a draw after 90 minutes against Necaxa with a stunning six saves.

The manager J. Aguirre Onaindía will start preparations for the next game as soon this is finished, as the hosts are going to Juarez in only three days.

Tijuana form and stats

After this away game Tijuana return home for a Liga MX game against America. That game is only three sleeps after this.
