Atlas vs Monarcas Morelia Prediction

Atlas have been alternating between wins and defeats in their past four games in the Liga MX. Their last clash at home saw them take down Tijuana with a 2-1 scorecard. While on the road, they were at the losing end of that very same scoreline to Tigres.

To be frank, the hosts are yet to hit the ground running in their campaign. With two wins and two losses, the home team are currently sitting eighth on the ladder.

Meanwhile, Monarcas Morelia have been faring poorly right from the start of the Clausura. Miserably, they are one among the only two teams that are yet to have a taste of success and are deservedly stuck to the bottom of the table at the moment.

To make matters worse, the visiting contingent have just one measly win to boast of from their past seven outings across various competitions. In sharp contrast, Atlas have been recording back to back wins in their past two games here overall.

Taking into account that the reverse fixture of this matchup also witnessed the hosts secure the bragging rights, Monarcas Morelia’s chances of coming out on top are certainly looking bleak.

Be that as it may, the visitors have not admitted defeat in any of their last two visits to this stadium. Considering that Atlas have also dropped points in three of their previous five games here, it will be safer to back a Draw no bet in this one.

Furthermore, the hosts have not been keen in racking up the goal-scoring charts at home. They have not scored more than two goals in any of their previous six top-flight fixtures here, and have also thwarted their opponents from doing the same as well.

Meanwhile, Monarcas Morelia’s frontline have just not been living up to expectations on the road either. Disappointingly, they have found the back of the net just twice from their last three outings in the league.

Given that their previous two h2h meetings here on the trot have also been low scoring affairs, expect goals to be hard to come by this Friday too.
