Club Leon vs Monterrey
Mexico Liga MX Apertura
Date Monday, 30th July 2018
Kick-off at 2:00 UK/ 3:00 CET
Venue: Estadio León.
Club Leon depend on home support for a positive result when they welcome a stubborn Monterrey on the matchday 2 of the 2018/19 Liga MX season.
Leon will be looking for their first competitive win of the new season after back to back away defeats to Tigres in the league fixture and then to lowly Zacatecas Mineros earlier this midweek.
The hosts had mixed run in the league last season, they qualified for the Apertura play-offs, but finished 13th in the Clausura.
Monterrey were the most consistent team in the league last season and they finished 1st and 3rd in Apertura and Clausura respectively. They reached the final of the Apertura and lost to Tigres, while eliminated at the quarter final stage of the Clausura by Tijuana.
It is a positive start for Monterrey this time as well, with their first game of the season resulting in a 1-0 away win at Pachuca.
Club Leon vs Monterrey Head-to-head

Club Leon vs Monterrey Prediction
Leon get to play at their home ground for the first time this season, while Monterrey remain on the road for second consecutive week.
Club Leon had bagged some decent results at this ground last season and therefore they cannot be underestimated.
However, Monterrey proved that they are one of the toughest to beat in the country after 6 defeats in 34 games last season. They are a tricky customer to negotiate at the road as well and they are poised to take a point at least from Sunday’s late night game.
