Lobos BUAP vs Monterrey by KhanT
This is one interesting game to be honest, after destroying Santos Laguna in Copa MX, and securing Liguilla in Liga MX, Monterrey will play their two last league games against Lobos BUAP away and in the last round they will host Tigres. None of that matters really because Monterrey made the playoffs long time ago and they are the best team in the league in the regular season of Apertura. Should they start thinking about Liguilla? Yes. So maybe we will not see the best lineup of Monterrey with Funes Mori-Hurtado-Pabon, I also need to mention that Pabon received some nasty tackles last night against Santos Laguna and he was subbed later on because of the pain. But the reports say it's nothing serious, so there's no injury really. But it's still not the smartest thing to put him on against hungry Lobos BUAP that arrived from the second division and did very well this season, when this game means nothing for Monterrey.
Also Monterrey will play Copa MX semi finals soon after this against Club America, this is another main objective for Monterrey and more important than winning in Liga MX since they are already qualified for playoffs. This makes me pull the trigger on over here, it's true that Monterrey allowed only 9 goals this season but it's also true that Lobos BUAP are one of the best scorers so far, they have scored 23 goals and some top teams were unable to do that, yet a second division promoted team in their first season scored this many. And of course, there is still a dream about reaching Liguilla playoffs, because just like Tijuana, if Atlas bottles it until the end and Lobos wins, they can make the playoffs, in theory of course, that's pretty hard to expect.
This means that we will see attacking Lobos BUAP at home once again, even with B squad of Monterrey (if this happens, probably won't) we can see goals here, defense of Lobos BUAP is horrible, and as good as their attack is, their defending destroys all of that. They have allowed 30 goals, but hey, they are sitting on 12th place much better than Chivas, UNAM, Queretaro and so on, some of the bigger names in first division. So the goal for Lobos BUAP is completed already, they did incredibly well for a team from second division, they scored so many goals and made their fans happy, but they will still go for it in this game because the dream is still here. Monterrey should have no trouble scoring against such defense honestly, no matter who plays for Monterrey in this game, and Lobos should score with the kind of attack they showed this season and impressed everyone.
