Monterrey & # 39; s & # 39; Rayados & # 39; won 1-0 against the Tigers of the Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León on Wednesday in the semifinals of the Mexican football tournament Clausura-2019 played at the Bancomer stadium. It was the 13th minute when in an offensive offensive, the ball reached Dorlan Pabón in the area. The Colombian launched the ball in an attempt to hit the Argentinian Rogelio Funes Mori who failed to finish, but the ball slipped into the net before goalkeeper Nahuel Guzmán was surprised.
The "Rayados" have lost three other clear opportunities to reach the second leg with a greater advantage on Saturday at the Universitario stadium. To advance to the final, the felines have to win by 1-0 or by two goals of difference if Monterrey scores them.
The other semifinal will be launched Thursday between the American champion and the leader Leon. Initially this series was scheduled for Wednesday, but was delayed due to the contingency due to environmental contamination that occurs in Mexico City.
Moreover, the commitment has changed the scenario. It will be played at the La Corregidora stadium in Querétaro and not at the Azteca stadium in the Mexican capital.
