Apertura 2018 Semifinal Second Legs: Where to Watch

The Apertura 2018 finalists will be determined this weekend as Cruz Azul, Monterrey, América, and Pumas UNAM play the second legs of their semifinal series.

The semifinals are a two-legged, aggregate goals series; away goals are tiebreakers. If both the aggregate and the away goals are level at the end of the second leg, the higher seed will advance.

First Leg Results
Monterrey 1-0 Cruz Azul
Pumas UNAM 1-1 América

Those first leg results means each team needs the following to advance:

Cruz Azul: advances with a 1-0 win; if Monterrey scores, they must win by at least two (ex: 3-1, 4-2)

Monterrey: advances with a win or draw, or a one-goal loss so long as they score (ex: 2-1, 3-2)

América: advances with a win or a 0-0 or 1-1 draw

Pumas UNAM: advances with a win or a draw of 2-2 or higher


All times Eastern, home team listed first.
