Monterrey vs Queretaro
Mexico – Copa MX
Date: Wednesday, 10 October 2018
Kick-Off at 02:30 UK
Venue: Estadio BBVA Bancomer (Guadalupe).
The closing match of the Copa MX quarter-finals is going to be contested between Monterrey and Queretaro.
Home side is in a variable form lately and they managed to book two victories in the last five matches in all competitions. In the national championship, they are sitting on the 6th position being six points behind the top spot.
Nicolas Sanchez and the lads have been fairly productive so far, however their defending hasn’t been on the expected level. Monterrey have been putting fine home performances as they have lost just once when playing at their ground.
Queretaro haven’t been performing very well lately as they celebrated just once in the last five occasions. Although they did well in the front, their defence allowed too many goals lately.
They are sitting in the playoffs zone in the Mexican top flight, but Monarcas and Tijuana have the same number of points.
Rafael Puente’s side needs to improve their finishing if they want to stay in the top eight as they’ve scored just 12 times so far.
However, the visitors have been playing very well at away grounds as they haven’t lost in the last four outings.
Monterrey vs Queretaro: Head-to-head
Monterrey have been more successful in their head to head clashes lately as they managed to celebrate three times in the last five occasions, while their rivals snatched a draw twice.
Their clashes have been a joy to watch in terms of total goals scored as the crowd wasn’t able to see goals in both nets just once in the last nine matches.
Monterrey vs Queretaro: Prediction
Although both sides haven’t been performing very well lately, we believe the hosts should be a bit closer to the victory in this match. Monterrey should be capable of booking an important win which could launch them into the semi-finals of Copa MX.
We are going to follow the tradition of their head to head clashes despite the visitors haven’t been too productive lately. We are expecting to see at least three goals in this one as it was the case in their last five encounters.
