Match Preview & Latest Team News About Friday 

When it comes to players and squads, both teams will be playing without one player die to injuries. Cruz Azul's Jesus Corona has been out since July with a fractured toe. For Monterrey, Vincent Janssen is also out with an injury since August, but he is expected to be back at the end of September. Other than the injured players, there won't be any more missing for Friday's match. 

When it comes to goals scored, we don't think that we will see more than 2.5 scored between Cruz Azul and Monterrey at the end of this week. The winning team, which we believe it's going to be Monterrey, will face either Philadelphia Union or Club America in the CONCACAF Champions League final.
