In the semifinals of the Copa Corona MX, Monterrey will host Chivas of Guadalajara at the Estadio BBVA Bancomer this Wednesday, April 5, 2017 (6:30 PM Pacific). Both teams have been among the best in the Liga MX and should provide an exciting encounter in this match.
Monterrey is excelling in both the Liga MX and the Copa MX, currently in third place in the Liga MX with 19 points. The most recent result for Antonio Mohamed’s side was a disappointing 1-0 loss to Club America at the Estadio Azteca. In the Copa MX, the ‘rayados’ have been an offensive force, scoring 20 goals including the playoffs.
Rogelio Funes Mori has been Monterrey’s top goal-scorer, scoring 10 goals in all competitions, including the Copa MX playoffs. Antonio Mohamed has used his best players in the Copa MX like Funes Mori, Dorlan Pabon, Edwin Cardona and Cesar Montes. Monterrey has the home-field advantage and should be able to give an exciting performance.
Chivas of Guadalajara is currently in second place with 21 points in the Liga MX Clausura 2017, coming off a disappointing 0-0 draw to Monarcas Morelia away from home. The ‘tapatios’ road to the semifinals of the Copa MX was not easy, defeating Correcaminos UAT on penalties in the round of 16 and defeating Juarez 3-2 in the quarterfinals. Matias Almeyda has not used all his best players yet in this competition and it is unclear if he will in this match. Guadalajara needs to use its top players to get a favorable result in this game, coming up against a tough Monterrey side away from home. The match should be one of the best match-ups this week and should present an enticing duel.
