Here comes Atlas!

In contrast to Monterrey, La Academia played a dream role in the regular phase and, without so much attention, surprised everyone by qualifying directly and finishing in second place thanks to eight wins, five draws and four defeats, which resulted in 29 points. 

Now, the Jalisco team looks like a strong favorite, not only because of what they have done over the course of 17 games, but also because when they faced each other on matchday seven, they beat Rayados with a 2-1 final score, a result that, beyond the three points, was a hard blow for 'Vasco's' team, as Atlas cut short their unbeaten streak of four games without losing. 

9:37 PM13 days ago

Here's how Rayados are coming!

For this match, the team coached by Javier Aguirre will be in high spirits after their performance in the playoffs, where they were able to take advantage of their last chance to win a ticket to the big party by eliminating the current champion, Cruz Azul. 
Goals from Rogelio Funes Mori, Maximiliano Meza and Vicent Janssen were enough to stop La Maquina and give them the blow of authority they had been lacking in the regular phase. La Pandilla did not have the best tournament and had to go through some ups and downs, which left them with five wins, seven draws and five defeats throughout the tournament, resulting in 22 points, which put them in ninth place. 
After that, the team from Monterrey got back on their feet with a 4-1 win over the La Noria team, and came into the game looking to advance and fight for the title. However, it will be no easy task, as the Red and Blacks have all the odds in their favor. 
9:36 PM13 days ago

Curious Fact

After finding out their opponent in the quarterfinals, the Argentinean coach, Diego Cocca, took the pressure off his team by saying that Monterrey is the favorite to advance, however, he also made it clear that they will go all out to reach the semifinals and make their identity clear.


"Monterrey is a team that has been winning championships for many years, in this last semester they were champions, it is very clear, Monterrey is a competitive team and is the favorite in this series. If we look player by player, Monterrey is the favorite, if we look coach by coach, Monterrey is the favorite, but the matches have to be played," he indicated.

Javier Aguirre's words!

Likewise, DT Vasco Aguirre also said that he has not forgotten that Atlas took away their undefeated record in the championship, which is why he will take the match as revenge, although he also had words of praise for the Rojinegros, who finished as the best defense in the competition.


"He took away our unbeaten record, I can't forget it. A match in which we had seven players out of the lineup and Atlas was the best team defensively this season, they did very well, with only six goals conceded with two games to go, a great goalkeeper, and a good job. Diego is a great coach, they were second in the league, what more can I say, other than that we expect a very tough opponent and I hope we can rise to the occasion", he added.

Rayados news:

In an interview with TUDN, Monterrey's sports president, Duilio Davino, expressed his hopes of winning the Liga MX title under the tutelage of coach Javier Aguirre and thus aspire to the double.


"Ideally, that hierarchy and that level should appear in every match, then we have to analyze the tournament coldly because we had many casualties, also the main objective because it was played before winning the Concachampions that was achieved and now we have to recover people and be as strong as possible for the Liguilla," he commented.
"There are players who have a period of adaptation, more than others, in the case of Erick Aguirre and Héctor Moreno, to be precise, they were injured and spent a long time recovering, we are recovering more and more people and we hope to recover Stefan Medina and César Montes so that Javier Aguirre already has an eleven", concluded the director.

Dressing rooms ready!

The gang is already in the locker room ready for the match against Atlas. Today more than ever the regios will wear the striped jersey with pride. 

8:56 PM13 days ago

The context

Naturally, Rayados will be the favorites for this first match, not only because they are playing at home, but also because of the boost to their morale after winning the CONCACAF Champions League crown and categorically eliminating Cruz Azul in the playoffs, so it would not be surprising if Javier Aguirre's team can take a good advantage for the second leg at the Jalisco.
Atlas is also to be respected; the red-and-black team are runners-up in the regular phase and now more than ever they are dreaming of breaking the curse of so many years without winning a league title.

In search of a second star

The Rojinegros del Atlas will be looking to continue with the excellent rhythm they showed during the regular season, which took them to the runner-up position in the tournament, just a few points behind the general leader. The team coached by Coca had a total of 29 points during the tournament, one of the highest figures achieved by the team from Guadalajara, with 8 wins, 5 ties and 4 defeats, 21 goals scored and only 10 goals against, a result that left them with a favorable balance of +11 and placed them as one of the most solid defenses in the championship, together with Club América. La Academia comes into this match after the FIFA break and the week's rest due to the playoffs. Despite the fact that the club has kept training, it will be a challenge to continue with the rhythm shown, however, for these quarterfinals they must take advantage of their condition as visitors and score in their favor to take advantage in the aggregate score.
