Whilst staying in their team hotel in Monterrey ahead of the tie, some of them decided to make a hilarious spoof video using the popular app ‘Dubmash’.
Edgar Gerardo Lugo (carrying a large lamp), Antonio Briseño (with the smaller lamp) and Enrique Esqueda (with the bedroom phone) seemed to be trying to recreate a scene from the TV series Spartacus, whilst also saying one of the famous club chants.
