Monterrey’s possible line-up for Santos Clausura 2023 playoff clash
Against Santos Laguna on Wednesday, Monterrey begin their bid to follow up regular-season success with victory in the Liga MX playoffs.
The time has come for Monterrey to make good on their regular-season form in the Clausura 2023 playoffs. Víctor Manuel Vucetich’s men, who won the league phase with 40 points - a club record in the Liga MX’s short-tournament era - now face Santos Laguna in the postseason quarter-finals.
Rayados rested and with no injuries or suspensions
Monterrey will go into today’s first leg at the Estadio Nuevo Corona having enjoyed a longer rest than their hosts. While Santos had to negotiate a preliminary-round clash with Pachuca on Saturday, Rayados’ automatic qualification for the last eight means they haven’t played since 30 April.
What’s more, Monterrey boss Vucetich has a full complement of players at his disposal.
Monterrey’s potential line-up against Santos Laguna
All the indications are that Rayados’ starting XI to face Santos today will be: Esteban Andrada; Stefan Medina, Víctor Guzmán, Héctor Moreno y Jesús Gallardo; Maxi Meza, Luis Romo, Celso Ortíz, Alfonso González, Rogelio Funes Mori and Germán Berterame.
