Team News: Querétaro FC
The Querétaro FC manager Leonardo Ramos doesn’t have any fitness worries whatsoever coming into this clash with a completely healthy group ready to go. Jonathan Dos Santos is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Team News: Monterrey
Thanks to a largely healthy group, there is only the lone fitness problem for the Monterrey gaffer Javier Aguirre to be concerned about. Joel Campbell (Sprained ankle) won’t be playing here.
We feel that Querétaro FC will need things to go their way to hit the back of the net against this Monterrey outfit who we think will manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
That’s why we have predicted a narrow 0-1 advantage for Monterrey at the end of the 90.
