The Eagles lost to Monterey on the last day
Mexico City-Despite not winning in two matches, the U.S. team won 0-0 today against Monterrey.
The US team finished Apertura with 35 points. They must wait until the end of the qualifying round in order to meet their opponent in the quarterfinals.
Santiago Solari, the Argentine coach, sent substitutes for the second consecutive game. The Eagles lead has been maintained for three consecutive games, and they have not participated in any other games since.
Solari and Monterrey were defeated in the final of the Central, North American and Caribbean Champions League. This setback is not the only one.
The Eagles will have six regular players on their bench. Like the previous tournament, they will rest for the first week. They were ranked second in that tournament, but lost to Pachuca the first round.
Rayados won Apertura in six of the last six games, and is currently ranked ninth with 22 point.
Only Atlético de San Luis can get them out of that position, but to do this, they must beat Santos with 8 goals on Sunday.
The United States still had a chance of winning at the age 74, despite resorting to the substitution team. Roger Martinez, a Colombian, was penalized. VAR cancelled it and found that it was a double touch.
