Chivas' most recent results
Chivas recently had a change of manager but have not improved results.

Luis Fernando Tena is yet to win in the league tournament and the team has not won since September 14th against Atlas.

The defeats against Monarcas, Pachuca and America, along with the draw versus Pumas have Chivas second-to-last in the table and with almost no hope of going to the postseason.

With three games without knowing the taste of victory and the dismissal of former coach Diego Alonso still fresh, Rayados come into this game with hopes of regaining form.

A tie against Cruz Azul plus defeats versus Tigres and Queretaro were crucial for the decision to change manager and bring back Mohamed.

Molina knows how much is at stake
Chivas' captain is a former Monterrey footballer and he is conscious of how good of a team they're facing.

He knows they're going to have to be intense and smart in able to get a positive result that can help them avoid the last places of the relegation table and keep their hopes of qualifying alive.

The return of Mohamed
Antonio Mohamed has returned as head coach for Monterrey after the sacking of Diego Alonso. The manager had his last stint with the club from 2015 to 2018 and failed to win any league titles. He lost a final against Pachuca at home, but was able to get a Copa MX title in 2017.

He now hopes to give Monterrey its fifth star and make all doubts about his work go away.

The Rayados vs Chivas match will be played at the Estadio BBVA in Monterrey, Mexico. The kick-off is scheduled at 8:00pm ET.
