Clausura 2018 Copa MX Round of 16 Set

The group stage has wrapped up and sixteen teams have advanced to the knockout rounds of the Clausura 2018 Copa Corona MX.

Some extensive tie-breaking procedures were needed to find who would advance out of Groups 8 and 9 after all three teams in each group finished with six points. With head-to-head results between the tied teams not separating them, and with the same goal difference for each team, it was away goals that eventually proved decisive, with Celaya and Pachuca advancing out of Group 8 and Monarcas Morelia and Querétaro moving on from Group 9.

In all, 11 teams from Liga MX and five from Ascenso MX advanced to the Round of Sixteen; the complete group standings can be found here.

The Round of Sixteen match-ups are as follows:

Monterrey vs Querétaro
Cafetaleros vs Monarcas Morelia
Zacatepec vs Pachuca
Pumas UNAM vs Lobos BUAP
Necaxa vs Atlas
León vs Celaya
Toluca vs Alebrijes de Oaxaca

The games are set to be held between March 5th and 6th, with the exact dates and times to be announced.
