Team News: Monterrey
Vincent Janssen (Fractured Finger) and Daniel Parra (Ruptured knee ligament) won’t be playing for Monterrey gaffer Javier Aguirre.
Team News: Club América
Owing to a fully injury-free squad ready to go, Club América manager Santiago Solari doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this clash.
We feel that Club América might have a difficult job to hit the back of the net against this Monterrey side who we reckon will win and very possibly keep a clean sheet.
We’ve gone for a hard-fought 1-0 win for Monterrey when all is said and done.
