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.
Necaxa earned their first win of the season in style with a 0-4 away win against León. The result brings León’s unbeaten start to the Clausura 2018 to an abrupt halt.
The visitors had the first chance of the game with a shot from Víctor Dávila in just the 7th minute, but William Yarbrough made the save. It took León until the 17th minute to find a notable chance of their own, with Elías Hernández forcing a save out of Marcelo Barovero.
