Cruz Azul dominated Monterrey 1-0 in the first leg on Thursday, giving them a slim lead ahead of the crucial second leg in Mexico City. Monterrey dominated Cruz Azul on almost the entire stat line, outscoring its opponents 13-10 and holding possession for 59 percent of the action, but Cruz Azul made its shots count, with five shots on target (including the only goal of the match from Carlos Rotondi) against just three of the opposition.

Cruz Azul now have home advantage for the second leg, and they will need to beat Monterrey or hold them to at least a draw, if they hope to advance to the next round. Tiebreakers in the Clausura are decided by away goals, so if Monterrey can score twice and are only one point ahead, they can still win the semi-final.

Cruz Azul will hope that leading scorer Uriel Antuna (8) can edge out a formidable Monterrey team including Sergio Canales (8) and Brandon Vazquez (5) for the last of the two semifinal matches. The championship is scheduled for Thursday and Sunday, May 23 and 26.
