Mexico City /
The albiazules opened Day 18 with a 0-4 win over Xolos, in the Warm Stadium, and they were placed in classification zone for the first time in seven days; they depended on other results to stay in eighth place by adding 24 points.
Those led by Antonio Mohamed needed Pachuca and Pumas not to win so as not to be displaced from the first eight, and they ended up with draws against Tigers Y Juarez, respectively, and luckily for Monterrey, which will now end Day 18 in eighth.
With these results the Gang all you need is to beat Atlas on the last date, which will be played in the Steel Giant on November 23 after the FIFA date, since Xolos has the same amount of points (24), but differs from -9 goals, while the regios have +2.
It seemed that Rayados' aspirations were complicated after the tie against Veracruz the previous day that left them in eleventh place, behind Tijuana, Tuzos and Pumas, but luck smiled at them, because Xolos did not take off in points when he fell against Bravos the last Sunday and now the albiazules are one step away from entering the Fiesta Grande of Mexican soccer.
