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.
