Cruz Azul vs Monterrey: times, TV and how to watch online

Cruz Azul and Monterrey will go head-to-head in an all-Mexican CONCACAF Champions League semi-final at the Estadio Azteca on Thursday.

Both teams previously played the first-leg game at the Estadio BBVA last month, with Monterrey coming out on top thanks to Maximiliano Meza's goal.

The visitors are sitting seventh in the Mexican league with 11 points in eight games, while Juan Reynoso’s men are in eighth position with 10 points. The two sides have had identical results in their last five games: a defeat in their latest outing, three back-to-back draws and one win.

A battle on the cards for a spot in the final

Since 2003, they have met each other 48 times across all competitions. Cruz Azul have won 20 matches, the visitors have emerged victorious in 13 and the spoils have been shared 15 times.

However, Rayados have never lost to Cruz Azul in the CONCACAF Champions League. They beat the ‘Celestes’ 3-2 on aggregate in the semi-finals of the 2011-12 campaign as they went on to lift the title that season. They last met in the domestic competition in August in a game that ended in a 1-1 draw.
