  • Luis Romo
  • Matias Kranevitter
  • Alfonso González

The key player to watch out for is Rogelio Funes Mori. He has scored eight goals across all competitions for the team this season. In the previous two matches the team scored before the Club World Cup tie, Mori was on the scoresheet with two goals in two games. He has to pick up his scoring boots ahead of this match.

  • Abdulla IdreesT
  • Thulani Serero

Monterrey vs Al Jazira predictions and betting tips

Both teams are in fairly same form, they lost their respective last matches. Monterrey have only one loss with three draws and a win in their last five matches, while Al Jazira have two losses, two wins and a draw. This is going to be the first meeting between both teams.

Predictions for this match are Monterrey to win, and over 2.5 goals and both teams to score. The Rayados seem to be in better form and stronger than the Al Ankabout. The latter has scored in their last 15 games, whether they win, lose or draw. Even in the last match that they were thrashed, they still scored. Even though I’m banking on Monterrey to win, I still see Al Jazira scoring a goal in the game.

Betting prediction: Over 2.5 goals

Odds: 1.66 (-150 American; 2/3 Fractional)

Betting prediction: Both teams to score (Yes)

Odds: 1.95 (-105 American; 20/21 Fractional)
