Venue: Estadio Nemesio Diez (Toluca).

Toluca’s season will kick off when they host Monarcas Morelia on Sunday evening to round off the first week of the new Mexican football season.

Toluca are the odds on favourites to win the game and Monarcas are very much being seen as the clear outsiders.

The beginning of the season is always difficult to judge a team, but Monarcas will want to try and surprise their hosts, and they have been practising being more clinical from set pieces.

It is clear that Toluca are the better quality side who have a larger and in depth squad than the visitors but they will have to be on their A game to get a result here as Monarcas will not be a team who is afraid to come forward and cause problems.
