Veracruz vs Querétaro – 10:00 PM – Azteca America
Veracruz finished a disappointing 17th in the Apertura season, and the Tiburones Rojos are in that same penultimate spot in the relegation standings as well. Veracruz did end last season with a win, though, and they’ll look to start the Clausura the same way. The Tiburones struggled at home last season, however, with just three wins in nine games. They also endured a four-game home losing streak. But with relegation a real threat, they will need to start this season on the right foot.
As for Querétaro, the Gallos Blancos finished 11th in the Apertura, a slight improvement over the prior season but still not great. Querétaro will be looking to make it back into the playoffs this season, and they did end the Apertura with a two-game road winning streak. However, it’s worth noting that prior to that two-game streak at the end of the season, the Gallos failed to win a single one of their previous seven road matches. Nevertheless, they’ll look to add to Veracruz’s home woes with another away win in this one.
