Cruz Azul, which is in first place and undefeated through eight matches of the Mexican soccer league's Apertura tournament, will visit Necaxa in Matchday 9 of 17 action on Saturday.
Necaxa has mostly succeeded in playing a stylish brand of attacking soccer but has managed just 10 goals and allowed 13. However, the Aguascalientes-based club has performed much better thus far in the Apertura season at home than on the road.
Chivas, in 12th place after a loss two weeks ago against Pachuca ended its three-game winning streak, will have its hands full against a Monterrey squad that has gotten strong performances from all of its lines thus far this season.
