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
