Apertura 2018 Week 2 Preview: Friday’s Game

Monarcas Morelia vs Santos Laguna – 8:00 PM – Univision Deportes
Monarcas Morelia (15th) fell 2-0 to Toluca in last weekend’s game, and they’ll now look to earn their first points of the season in their first home game here. The Monarquía did get off the mark in the Copa MX, where they earned a 2-0 victory against Alebrijes de Oaxaca in midweek. Morelia will hope that goal-scoring form carries over into league play, as it took them some time to get off the mark in that regard last season. They’ll also be without the suspended Aldo Rocha for this one.

As for Santos Laguna (7th), the Laguneros picked up a 2-1 victory against Lobos BUAP in last weekend’s game and they’ll look to make it two wins out of two when they go on the road in this one. Santos will have the benefit of some extra rest as they did not play in midweek; however, they didn’t have the best away record last season. They’ll look to change that with a positive result here.
