MONTERREY, Mexico – Monterrey will conclude its domestic preparations for this month’s Club World Cup on Saturday, when it hosts 2013 Paraguayan Apertura champion Nacional in a friendly at the Estadio Tecnologico.
It will be the Rayados fourth game in advance of traveling to Morocco, where it will meet the winner of Raja Casablanca-Auckland City in the FIFA event’s quarterfinals on December 14. The three-time CONCACAF champion drew with fellow Mexican-side Santos (1-1) on November 16, and posted 2-0 wins over Ecuador’s Deportivo Quito and Equidad of Colombia on November 23 and 30, respectively.
Nacional announced Tuesday that it will travel to Mexico two days before the encounter with a squad of 18 players.
