Cruz Azul vs Pachuca Prediction
Cruz Azul started their season with a double loss in their record. But they managed to stay unbeaten with a win and a draw in their streak after that. Their previous encounter in the league produced six goals in total. Both Toluca and Cruz managed to score three goals each in the draw at Toluca.
The punters will also be interested in the home ground advantage of Cruz Azul in the clash. They lost their first home match and went onto win the second attempt in the campaign. The host has managed to score four goals and conceded two goals in the process.
Moreover, Cruz has lost only two of their last ten home matches in their fixture. Also, the home team has scored at least a goal in all their past ten attempts at home. So, Robert Siboldi will be confident with his boys fighting it out at their own turf.
Pachuca had their first three matches in the league end in winless terms with two losses in it. However, they have managed to win in their previous encounter. They faced Tigres in that match and won by a 2-0 scoreline at home.
Even though the visitors are coming after a win, they haven’t won any of their away fixtures this season. Pachuca has scored only one goal while conceding five of them in the process. So, the punters will not be much interested in betting on Pachuca.
As such, it will be better to draw no bet upon Cruz Azul in the match since they are on a two-game unbeaten streak in the league. Also, we can expect the total score to be under 3.5 goals in ninety minutes.
