Next Thursday the second game of the second leg of the Concacaf Champions League will be played between Cruz Azul and Rayados de Monterrey. A great game is expected and neither team will save anything, as they will try to put all the meat on the grill to obtain their ticket to the grand final of the contest. Here we present the preview with all the details of the meeting.
Although it is only a semifinal and the fact of winning it has not yet translated into trophies, La Maquina knows that Thursday's game against Monterrey could be a watershed in the tournament. And it is that after four games without winning in the MX League they have generated some uncertainty, so a triumph in the Concachampions would serve as a mood boost for the second half of A21.
When and where will Cruz Azul vs Monterrey play
The game will begin next Wednesday, September 15 at 9:00 p.m.; and at 7:00 p.m. in Los Angeles, California time. The Azteca Stadium field will open its doors to witness this commitment that promises emotions. In the first leg match, the Rayados took oil from BBVA and took the advantage with a solo goal from Maxi Meza. Now, the cement manufacturers will seek to take advantage of their location to weigh the Colossus of Santa Úrsula and be able to go to the next round.
