Clausura 2018 Week 5 Preview: Saturday’s Games

Querétaro vs Veracruz – 6:00 PM – Univision Deportes
Querétaro (14th) fell 1-0 to Monarcas Morelia to keep them winless in two. The Gallos Blancos are also winless at home this season, with a loss and a draw in La Corregidora, but they’ll look to change that here when they take on a relegation rival. Of concern for Querétaro is their goal-scoring – or lack thereof. The Gallos have been shut out in three of their four games to date. On the other hand, they’ve only allowed two goals all season.

As for Veracruz (16th), the Tiburones Rojos drew 1-1 with Santos Laguna last weekend to keep them winless in the Clausura. Veracruz is sitting at the foot of the relegation standings and needs to pick up points ASAP if they want to remain in Liga MX next season. The Tiburones Rojos did manage to score their first goal of the season last weekend, and they’ll look to build on that here.
