In the quarterfinals of the Liga MX Clausura 2017, Monterrey will host Tigres UANL at the Estadio BBVA Bancomer this Saturday, May 13, 2017 (5:00 PM Pacific). Tigres UANL dominated Monterrey in the first leg of the matchup, obtaining a 4-1 victory and hopefully this game can be more competitive than that game.
Monterrey is coming from a disastrous performance in the first leg of this quarter-final matchup that has Los Rayados with a foot out of the door in the playoffs. It will be an almost impossible task for Monterrey to come back from the 4-1 deficit that was suffered in the first leg away from home. Antonio Mohamed does have a potent offense that scored 26 goals in the regular season of the Clausura 2017 but he will be facing the best defense in the League in this game.
Mohamed will need to go all-out attack in this encounter and try to break through Ricardo Ferretti’s rigid back line. Monterrey will need to win by at least three goals to advance to the quarterfinals and try not to concede against a powerful Tigres’ attack.Mohamed will need to go all-out attack in this encounter and try to break through Ricardo Ferretti’s rigid back line. Monterrey will need to win by at least three goals to advance to the quarterfinals and try not to concede against a powerful Tigres’ attack.
Ricardo Ferretti’s squad will go into this game more calmly but will still have the pressure of the game being El Clasico Regio. Ferretti will most likely stick to his tactics and fall back and maintain his already impressive lead. It is a lead that Los Felinos should have no problem maintaining even if they are playing away from home at a tough venue. In the Clausura 2017 regular season, the two teams faced off at the Estadio BBVA Bancomer and Monterrey came away with a slim 1-0 victory. Tigres’ back line will be
Tigres’ back line will be on top for this encounter and Guido Pizarro should especially play a huge role in that defensive midfield spot. It is unlikely that Monterrey will overcome this deficit and Tigres UANL seems like a lock for the semifinals. Ricardo Ferretti’s defense allowed a league-low 12 goals and is unlikely to have a meltdown in this game. The encounter should still be very enticing with Monterrey risking everything for the possibility to reach the next round of the playoffs.
