Midway Rundown Monterrey

After a tie to Tijuana Monterrey finds themselves in a crowded three-way tie on top of the standings.

How did Monterrey get to the top of the Liga MX standings. Vavel shows how the tie they salvaged against Tijuana helped them accomplish the first place tie but no better. Monterrey would follow Corona's goal with a comeback goal from Canales near the end of the match.

How did they play in the season up to that point? Well it must have been pretty good considering their position but here is a look. Game one saw a 2-0 win over Puebla.

They seemed rather satisfied going into match two. That confidence may have helped them edge Santos Laguna 2-0.

The third game played was against Querétero. They ended up each scoring one goal; the final score was a 1-1 tie.

Match four was a game against San Luis. They put across three goals in that one. That was good enough for the 3-1 win. No goals were scored in the final third of that match.

The next game would feature a tough opponent. That would be the semiannual match against Club América. It would play to a 1-1 tie after goals by Canales and Valdés. There also was a late red on Moreno of Monterrey.

The next match would have them take on the opponent Pachuca. They would score three times. Was it enough? They held up for the win after only allowing two to cross.

Toluca was the next opponent. That game would end in a scoreless tie. The goals were scored by nobody however there were some decent chances. Just before half, Pereira of Toluca was charged with a penalty-yielding red card that was eventually overturned by VAR electronic official review. Two yellows were given later. Late in stoppage time Monterrey had a goal disallowed by review. The final stood at no score.

I the last two matches Monterrey would gain four points. That would cost me in a 3-0 win over Juárez and the most recent 1-1 tie with Club Tijuana. The next opponent is Pumas UNAM on Sunday, March 3. Will the top of the Clausura stay crowded after the next week of matches?
