FC Juarez vs Pumas Prediction

Juarez were on the road in the opening round of the Clausura. They had locked horns with Guadalajara, and the former were comfortably beaten by a 2-0 scorecard. Both goals had come early in the first half itself.

Pumas meanwhile made full use of their home status the previous game week, as they defeated Pachuca with a 2-1 scoreline. The hosts had led throughout the match, and if not for the 90th min penalty by Pachuca, UNAM would have recorded a clean sheet.

However, this Friday Pumas are on the road, and that will make a whole lot of difference. The team had a total of two league wins away from home in the whole of 2019, and just a single one in the just-concluded Apertura season.

As of now, the team are on a five-match winless run in away fixtures, and they had finished their last Clausura campaign with a six-game losing run on the road.

On top of that, Pumas are winless at this venue against this opponent, and to put things further into perspective, not a single win has been posted by a team on the road in h2h encounters.

On the other hand, Juarez are on a scoring streak of eight games in front of their home crowd, and have failed to do so in only four of their last twenty-five appearances here. They were also unbeaten in 18 of their preceding 25 home fixtures.

Finally, note that Juarez had lost their opening game in the Clausura, and they will be adamant about getting into a winning track.

Considering all these observations, it’s expected that the hosts Juarez will put forth a worthwhile performance for a win this Friday.
