The Apertura 2018 Copa MX is back to its original schedule for the semifinals after a weather-delayed round of sixteen game had a knock-on effect on the quarterfinal schedule.
The competition is all caught up now, however, as Monterrey beat Querétaro 1-0 this week in their rescheduled match, and that result allowed the dates, times, and matchups of the semifinals to be confirmed.
The postponement of the Round of 16 game between Monterrey and Zacatepec has had a cascading effect on the scheduling of the Apertura 2018 Copa MX knockout rounds.
This week will see Monterrey and Zacatepec play their postponed match as well as three of the quarterfinal games; the fourth quarterfinal, between the winner of Monterrey/Zacatepec and Querétaro, will be held during the upcoming FIFA break.
This week’s games are as follows; all times Eastern, home team listed first.
The Apertura 2018 Copa MX Round of Sixteen was held this week, with seven teams so far – six Liga MX and one Ascenso MX – having booked their spot in the quarterfinals.
The game between Monterrey and Zacatepec was postponed due to weather and field conditions; they will play next Tuesday, while the rest of the remaining teams will contest their quarterfinal games. The winner of Monterrey/Zacatepec will face Querétaro in the quarterfinals during the next FIFA break, after which the competition should return to its original schedule.
The knockout rounds of the Apertura 2018 Copa Corona MX begin this week, with 12 teams from Liga MX and four from Ascenso MX facing off in the Round of Sixteen.
