Key Stats

  • Monterrey have a sturdy attack, with 32 goals scored across 17 matches in the domestic league.

  • HOME: -133 – 56.1%
  • DRAW: +290 – 24.9%
  • AWAY: +390 – 19.0%

*These Monterrey vs Columbus Crew odds are subject to change

The match between the two teams will likely be won by Monterrey, as Rayados keep a massive 56.1% win probability ahead of the kick-off on the 2nd of May. At least that’s what the odds suggest. They also imply that Nancy’s Columbus Crew only has a lackluster 19.0% shot at victory at Estadio BBVA, which is normal, considering the intimidating venue.

Player to watch: Cucho Hernandez

Thrilling Cucho is the player to watch in our Monterrey vs Columbus Crew prediction, as coach Nancy will rely on him to be the difference-maker at Estadio BBVA. Cucho Hernandez was the best finisher for the Crew during the 2023 Major League Soccer campaign, so he is definitely going to be among the starters for the visitors.

Keep Hernandez quiet – win your game

If coach Fernando Ortiz manages to find a way to nullify Cucho Hernandez, surely Monterrey will be able to beat the Crew at home. Whenever Cucho doesn’t perform well, the Crew suffer.
