Cruz Azul vs Atletico de San Luis
Mexico-Liga MX Apertura
Date: Sunday 24th November 2019
Kick off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Azteca (Mexico City).
It has not been a good season for Cruz Azul who come into this game in 14th position but they will try and salvage their season by reaching the play-offs and are just 4 points shy of that target.
Form for the home side has been poor with just 1 win in their past four games, their most recent game ended with a 3-1 loss against Santos. At home the team have collected 13 points from a possible 24 and have just 1 defeat int their last five games which is at least encouraging. They also have adapted a mean defence at home conceding just 9 so far from 8 games which is one of the best in the league.
Atletico are in 15th place and on the same points as Cruz Azul so this makes this quite a mouth-watering prospect. Form is very poor though with 4 defeats in their last 5 games. Away from home the club have the bizarre record of having the 2nd best record but at home they have the worst- they don’t evidently like playing at home then. They have been able to win 5 games from the 8 they have played so far.

Cruz Azul vs Atletico de San Luis: Prediction
We are going to back the away side to get the win. This may seem like a surprise but on further research we have learned that there are back room problems at Cruz Azul which have upset the team in the last few weeks.
Obviously go minimum stakes on this one but we feel also that Atletico have a very good away record and the team are more together at this time than their opponents, so we are backing them to get all three points in this very important game.
