The pending Liga MX Guard1anes Tournament 2021 game between Monterrey and Club León will finally take place today. For a match corresponding to the third round, these two teams that are going through very different moments will clash at BBVA Bancomer stadium. Rayados will be looking for a victory against the Mexican league defending champions to get closer to Club América and Cruz Azul in the table. Here, we'll take a look into the preview, storylines, predictions, odds, and how to watch this exciting game in the US.

The Rayados turned up their game in the past games and that saw them climb in the standings. They'll play at home again after last weekend's triumph over Querétaro looking to clinch their third-straight win in the league. Javier Aguirre's team got closer to the top seeds and another triumph would continue to encourage them. 

Meanwhile, Club León aren't doing well at all. Instead, the defending champions are performing very poorly this season, in which they look nothing like the team that lifted the trophy last year. However, the next match doesn't seem like an easy job to bounce back, but it's up to them proving if they are capable to stand up in these times or not.

Monterrey vs Club León: Storylines and Head-to-Head

The hosts head up to this clash in a good way, having recorded two consecutive wins before this meeting. The campaign that the Rayados are doing so far it's being quite good, and if they claim the three points in this clash they'd be establishing at the top positions. Moreover, the team coached by Javier Aguirre haven't lost in the last seven games at home in Liga MX.

On the other hand, León's season is being very disappointing. They lost the last three games they've played and find themselves far away from the first positions. Ignacio Ambriz's team is not even inside pre-playoff spots, which isn't what anybody could expect from a defending champion.

Still, the visitors have beaten Rayados in the last two times they faced each other in the Mexican league. Monterrey and León played 20 times in Liga MX. The hosts got the victory in 11 of those games while the Esmeraldas won six matches, and they tied three.
