Rayados de Monterrey have taken their chance, and after sneaking in Liguilla as an eighth seed and winning their quarterfinal, they take on fifth seed Necaxa in the first leg of an all-underdog semifinal. Monterrey has the first game at home, and will once again look to fully exploit the home field advantage, after a 5-2 home win against first seed Santos saw Rayados win their matchup 6-3 on aggregate. Here’s everything you need to know to live stream Monterrey vs. Necaxa, including what to watch for on the pitch.

Monterrey vs. Necaxa: What to watch for
Despite Rayados’ slow start to the season, they remain one of the most dangerous teams in the Americas. The defending CONCACAF Champions League winners will represent the region this month in the FIFA Club World Cup in Qatar, and the club has a unique opportunity to win two major trophies in the span of two weeks. With all of the favorites eliminated, Monterrey will feel that this is its tournament to win.
A favorable matchup with Necaxa should be straightforward for the CCL Champions, as long as Monterrey stays focused. (Some advice: Don’t think about that potential CWC semifinal against Liverpool, or the potential Liguilla final against América.)
