Santos Laguna vs Toluca
Mexico Liga MX – Apertura 2017
Date: Monday, 11th September 2017.
Kick-off at 02:30 UK / 01:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Corona, Torreón.
Santos welcome Toluca in the ninth round of Mexican Liga MX. Despite sitting in the opposite side of the table, the two sides are in the similar form and we might see an exciting and even clash.
The home team is sitting in the 14th position with 7 points collected. In the previous round, Santos inscribed their first victory of the season following the 1-2 triumph over Club Leon.
On the home turf, Santos have offered only disappointing results. Two draws and a defeat are far below expectations, so they will be aiming to grab the first victory of the season in front of their fans.
The visitors are occupying the fifth place in the standings with 12 points earned. They are also coming off a victory (2-1 vs. Puebla), so they will aim to record two back-to-back victories since the opening two rounds.
Toluca’s away performances are unimpressive so far – only two points earned from three matches. Also, scoring only one goal in three away games is a dire result.
Santos Laguna vs Toluca: Head-to-head
The two sides met three times in 2017. Back in May, following the 2-2 draw, Toluca triumphed 1-4, while Santos Laguna also registered 1-3 victory. The last four matches between the two sides bought 3 or more goals with both teams scoring.
Santos Laguna vs Toluca: Prediction
We will most likely witness another high-scoring affair in the encounters between Santos and Toluca. Toluca must improve their attack on the road and the forthcoming Torreón visit is the excellent opportunity. Toluca remained unbeaten in the last three away games against Laguna, so they certainly know how to play at Estadio Corona, and a draw is on the table here.
