The Monterrey vs Leon Liga MX match will be played this Saturday, February 15, 2014 (5:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Tecnologico. The ‘rayados’ will host the ‘panzas verdes’ in what is expected to be one of the top games during Week 7 of the Clausura 2014. Monterrey is urged for the win in order to improve upon their mediocre season, and they will have a good chance at the 3 points against Leon who will use a ‘B’ squad.
The ‘rayados’ of Monterrey have had a terrible start to the season after only earning 6 points in the first 6 games. The team lead by Jose Guadalupe Cruz cannot seem to gather momentum as that is taking a hard toll on the fans who week by week pressure the ownership to remove Cruz from his post. The game at home against Leon ‘B’ will be an important opportunity to earn the win; a loss will most probably remove the coach from his position.
Like Monterrey, the ‘panzas verdes’ are also having a disastrous start to their Clausura 2014. The only ‘big’ difference is that Leon is competing in the Copa Libertadores 2014, and coach Gustavo Matosas has chosen the prestigious international tournament over the Liga MX. For that reason Leon will align the reserves against Monterrey, which will raise their chances of losing the match. To defend the coach’s posture, Leon played Flamengo days ago on Wednesday, and next week they will travel to Bolivia to face Bolivar.
Monterrey vs Leon Prediction
Monterrey will face the substitutes of Leon, where the scenerio is a must-win situation for the ‘rayados’. Leon has not necesarilly given up on the Clausura 2014, but starting the bench means a loss will not create buzz in their team. Saturday’s game will be in favor of Monterrey, and the home team will earn the 3 points. The Monterrey vs Leon game will end 2-1 in favor of ‘rayados’.
