Monterrey Soccer Rayados reached the finals of the 2010-11 CONCACAF Champions League
In a thrilling match that lasted almost an hour, the Rayados de Monterrey beat America de Mexico, 1-0, in the 2010-11 CONCACAF Champions League final. The first goal was scored by Argentine Rogelio Funes Mori, who is Mexican-nationalized. The goal gave Monterrey the lead, and the team dominated for the remainder of the match.
In the first leg of the semi-finals, the Rayados faced Tigres, which had been eliminated from the competition the previous year. In the second leg, the Tigres won 1-0, but Rayados fought back to win the game 2-1. Monterrey won the game 5-3 on aggregate. After beating Tigres in the quarter-finals, Monterrey eliminated Monarcas Morelia, which had won the previous two rounds.
In the second leg, Monterrey advanced to the finals after finishing fifth in the Apertura. After beating Atlas 4-1 in the first leg, Monterrey beat Morelia in a tie and 3-0 on home soil. After a scoreless draw in the second leg, Monterrey went on to win the league title for the third consecutive year and fifth overall in the Vucetich Era.
The Rayados’ success has earned them a place in the history of Mexico football. In the 1990s, Monterrey reached the finals of the CONCACAF Champions League in Monterrey. The Rayados had to wait six years before they could win their third title. Now, the city is the home of the CONCACAF Champions League.
The team has played in 89 matches, two of which took place in the state of Texas. The Rayados reached the finals twice, in 2010 and 2011, but Tigres made it to the 2011 CONCACAF Champions League final, a year before Monterrey. In both instances, the Rayados won the game, but Tigres’ players were given controversial penalties.
The tournament’s knockout stage was very difficult for the Rayados, who finished atop the table in the Apertura. The semifinals saw the Rayados take on CD Olimpia and Real Espana. Unfortunately, they were forced to go through the qualifiers, but they beat Tauro 4-2 on aggregate to reach the finals.
The teams will meet in the second leg of the final, and the first leg ended in a tie. Monterrey had the better team, but Monterrey was the stronger team. They’re expected to win the tournament, but it’s not a stroll in the park. The competition will be tough, as each team views itself as one of the CONCACAF powers and will do all it takes to reach the next round.
The club’s name has become synonymous with Mexican soccer. Monterrey FC was founded in 1945 and has been in existence since then. It is currently the champion of the CONCACAF Champions League. The club has played its home games in the Estadio Tecnologico in Monterrey, a stadium that seats 32,854 fans. The stadium is shared with the Monterrey College Football team Borregos Salvajes.
Rayados reached the finals of the 2012-13 Liga MX Clausura
After a three-year absence, Rayados FC are back in the CONCACAF Champions League. Under Vucetich, Rayados have won the tournament three times in a row. In the 1959-60 tournament, the club won promotion to the first division and remained there for many years. This season, the team has signed a former Florentina player, Jose Maria Basanta, from UANL.
Monterrey and Santos Laguna have a long-standing rivalry, with the former reaching three Liga MX Clausura finals. Monterrey hasn’t been able to break through in recent years, but the club did win the 2012-13 Clausura final. Meanwhile, Monterrey is out of the Liguilla after finishing the season in 14th place. Rayados have been unbeaten in their last five games, and have hired manager Antonio ‘Turco’ Mohamed for a second tour.
Monterrey started the season well, reaching three wins in a row. In those games, they scored five goals and conceded just once. The team then went to Pachuca, a team with a strong tradition, and suffered a 3-1 defeat. In addition, center back Miguel Herrera was sent off while defensive midfielder Jesus Zavala made a clumsy foul inside the penalty box. These errors exposed Monterrey’s weaknesses, and it is important that Antonio Mohamed works hard to improve upon them.
After a stellar Clausura 2012 campaign, the Jaguares were eliminated by eventual champions Santos Laguna in the playoffs. While their offense has improved significantly, the Jaguares’ defense is still a question mark. The team’s prolific top-scorer Jackson Martinez has left the club for Europe, so they may need to take a more conservative approach to the playoffs.
Rayados lost to Al Ahly at the FIFA Club World Cup
On Wednesday, the Rayados de Monterrey fell 1-0 to Egypt’s Al Ahly. Al Ahly, who finished second in the CAF Champions League this season, has seven players in the final squad. The defeat leaves Monterrey in the Fifth Place Match. It was the first time that Monterrey has lost to Al Ahly at the Club World Cup.
After the first half, Monterrey aimed to take the game to the Egyptian team, but their passing and movement were sluggish. Rayados never got out of first gear, and Al Ahly rolled through their center backs. Despite some excellent interventions by Esteban Andrada, they still could not break the deadlock. As a result, the defeat came as a huge blow.
In a tense match, Al Ahly held firm against the Mexican team. Monterrey was outplayed by the Egyptian side, which has experienced internal difficulties over the past few seasons. The club had been absent from international competitions for six years. However, it returned to the international stage with a win against Tigres in the Concachampions.
The Al Ahly win reflects the improved team spirit in the Mexican club. Their first goal came in the second half after a long goal by the Al Ahly Defender. The Moroccan defender also forced a penalty kick for the Algerian side. Al Ahly’s win came despite the absence of several key players from their Africa Cup of Nations squad. They will face Palmeiras in the semis on January 8.
The match will be played on Saturday, February 5 at 10:30 am local time in Mexico. It will be broadcasted live on TNT in Mexico and on HBO Max on internet systems. The Monterey Rayados team is led by Esteban Andrada. Al Ahly, on the other hand, is led by Vincent Janssen and Maximiliano Meza. There are a few questions about the Rayados.
The team’s performance in the club tournament varies. In their last two appearances, Rayados were among the top three teams in the world. They were third in two tournaments and lost in the quarterfinals on the first try. However, the club’s third place performance in 2010 saw Rayados win the Apertura. Victor Manuel Vucetich’s team qualified for the club world cup by performing well in the Concacaf Champions League.
