Monterrey and Santos are two of the best teams - Monterrey won the league championship last December and defeated MLS favorites Real Salt Lake in the CONCACAF Champions League. The latter was the first international championship won by their coach. Santos Laguna are a formidable opponent, with forwards like Ludueña and strikers like Carlos Darwin Quintero and Carlos Ochoa. As a fan of both teams for over 3 seasons, I'll say this is anyone's game.

Since goalkeeper Memo Ochoa's transfer to French club AC Ajaccio, Club América and new starter GK Armando Navarette look to end their losing streak against Pachuca. CA needs a win to get ahead in the standings, as 3 points will put them at the top of the leaderboard in a 4-way tie with Chivas, Pumas, and Cruz Azul. CA have only started to develop consistency in their winning streak. Pachuca is the kind of team that needs to get just one ball in the net to break into a goal-scoring extravaganza. (If the electricity doesn't go out, we'll be able to tune in to this game.)
