Xolos on Monday lost to Monterrey on a home defeat at Estadio Caliente. With each team arriving on the back of a league defeat, they were both keen to pick up points. Xolos were hoping to get something from this game after losing their last match 2-0 to Santos Laguna. Monterrey were beaten 1-0 in the previous match against Guadalajara. As it stands, Xolos are in 11th place in the table and have 14 points while Monterrey sit in 1st with 24 points after 11 matches.

After a goalless first half, Rayados continued to apply pressure in the second, when German Berterame found the net, at 62 minutes. The momentum was now with Monterrey, who then scored again through a 2nd effort from German Berterame, at 73 minutes to establish a 2-0. However they weren’t finished yet and Jaziel Martínez made it 3-0 just before the final whistle to make it 3-0.

Substitutions for Xolos included Jose Vazquez, Alexis Canelo, Joaquin Montecinos and Edgar Lopez for Christian Rivera, Fabian Castillo, Franco Di Santo and Renato Ibarra, repectively. Monterrey brought on Sebastian Vegas, Rodolfo Pizarro and Jaziel Martínez for Arturo Gonzalez, Rodrigo Aguirre and German Berterame.

The referee booked Francisco Contreras from Xolos and Abraham Flores went off with a red card, while Monterrey’s Rodrigo Aguirre also received a yellow.

Xolos will next travel to León, while Monterrey will face Pachuca at home.
