Lobos BUAP vs Monarcas Morelia – 6:00 PM – Lobos BUAP TV
Lobos BUAP (12th) fell 3-2 to Tigres UANL last time out to extend their winless streak to four games. The licántropos have slipped down the Tabla de Cociente as a result and they’ll look to get back to winning ways when they return home for this one. They will be without the suspended Eduardo Tercero, however. Nevertheless, Lobos have one of the best attacking records in the league (averaging two goals a game) and if they can improve defensively they’ll be well-positioned to get a good result.

As for Monarcas Morelia (9th), the michoacanos beat América 2-0 last time out to give them back-to-back victories. Morelia will look to build on that and extend their winning streak to three when they face the vulnerable Lobos in this one. Morelia has had mixed results on the road, though, where they are 1-1-1 this season.
