View all Pachuca v Monterrey tips, stats and our pre-match poll below - along with the latest match odds.
Pachuca will be hoping to return to winning ways here following the 1-0 Liga MX (Apertura) defeat in their last game at the hands of Cruz Azul.
In that game, Pachuca managed 47% possession and 12 shots on goal with 2 on target. For their opponents, Cruz Azul had 15 shots at goal with 3 on target. Jonathan Rodríguez (91') was the scorer for Cruz Azul.
Over their preceding 6 fixtures, Paulo Pezzolano's Pachuca have hit the target 8 times resulting in an average number of goals scored per match equal to 1.33.
Their past results show that Pachuca:
- have not beaten Monterrey in their last 7 matches in the league.
- are unbeaten in their last 2 league matches at home.
Previously, Monterrey drew 1-1 in the Liga MX (Apertura) tie with Atlas.
In that game, Monterrey had 51% possession and 11 attempts at goal with 2 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Monterrey was Rogelio Funes Mori (84'). Atlas got 9 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target. Luciano Acosta (68') was the scorer for Atlas.
Monterrey have been a threat going forward of late, scoring 9 goals in their last 6 matches. While their manager Antonio Mohamed will no doubt take that as a positive sign, Los Rayados have had their own issues at the back, also conceding in 6 of those same clashes. That being said, we will just have to wait and see if the trend might be maintained here in this game.
Coming into this meeting, Monterrey are undefeated by Pachuca in games played away from home for the previous 4 league games. Away fans have certainly had plenty to cheer about.

A review of their past head to head results stretching back to 19/02/2017 reveals that these fixtures have been disappointments for Pachuca. They’ve not managed to register any victories whatsoever while Monterrey have been superior, beating them in 100% of those ties.
In all, 17 goals were shared by the two clubs throughout the course of those matches, with 3 for Los Tuzos and 14 coming from Los Rayados. The average number of goals per game works out to 2.83.

Team News: Pachuca
Pachuca manager Paulo Pezzolano will be grateful not to have any fitness worries to speak of ahead of this clash with a fully healthy group to pick from.
It looks as if Los Tuzos will possibly go for a 4-3-3 formation for the game featuring Oscar Ustari, Rodrigo Salinas, Gustavo Cabral, Oscar Murillo, Érick Aguirre, Edgar Padro, Jorge Hernandez, Luis Chavez, Romario Ibarra, Víctor Dávila and Erick Sánchez.
Team News: Monterrey
With a fully injury-free squad to choose from, Monterrey manager Antonio Mohamed doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this game.
We believe Los Rayados seem likely to play in a 4-3-3 formation, choosing Hugo Gonzalez, Cesar Montes, Nicolas Sanchez, Stefan Medina, Sebastian Vegas, Celso Ortiz, Jesús Gallardo, Carlos Alberto Rodríguez, Dorlan Pabon, Vincent Janssen and Rogelio Funes Mori.
We’re thinking that Monterrey and Pachuca could both end up scoring in what appears to be a good match-up, with little separating these two teams.
Shouldn’t be much in it, and a draw looks quite a realistic result. That’s why we have predicted a score draw at the conclusion of the game.
