The Rayados have dominated the recent series against Mazatlán. Beginning in the 2017-18 season, these teams have played 14 times, and Monterrey have eight wins and six draws. Monterrey have outscored Mazatlán 22-10 over that time.
In addition, the Rayados have one of the best defenses in the league.

Why you should back Mazatlán
The Cañoneros have a solid and experienced keeper in Hugo Gonzalez, who is in his first season with Mazatlán. The 32-year-old Gonzalez, who formerly played for Monterrey, is averaging 5.0 saves per game through the first two matches of the season. He also has made five appearances for the Mexican national team.
In addition, the Cañoneros face a Monterrey team that is still adjusting to new leadership. After last season Fernando Ortiz was hired to replace Victor Manuel Vucetich and bring a more attack-minded style of play to the Rayados. So far Monterrey have failed to see much improvement in their attack, with two goals in two games. See which team to pick here.
