Leon vs Monterrey Prediction
Leon managed to stay at the top part of the table with just one loss in their four matches so far in the Liga MX this season. The Emeralds have managed to win their last two games in the contest. Hence, the players will be on high morale in the upcoming match.
Their prior clash with Monarcas was on the road. Leon still managed to score two goals against one to take all three points from the match. However, Ignacio Ambriz will be glad to bring his team back to their own turf.
The Emeralds have had a good start at home this season. The host has won both their home matches in the league scoring three goals each in those clashes. They have conceded only one goal at home and that too against Queretaro close to them in the league table.
Monterrey is yet to collect three points from a game in the campaign. They started the season with a draw at home and will be visiting Leonb after a draw away from home in their prior clash. The Gang faced Necaxa on the road in that 2-2 draw.
Antonio Mohamed was bought back into the side last year. It has not paid well this season but since it has been just four games, the Gaffer will be trying to work things out in the middle soon. Monterrey lost their first away match giving away a clean sheet. So, the punters will be aware of the Gang’s poor away form in the league.
Based on their good start to the league accompanied by the home ground advantage, Leon will probably create more opportunities in the ninety minutes. The host has scored ten goals in four appearances and has conceded only half of them.
From this, the punters can go with two safe bets that will have more probability in the game. To open with, it is better to go with Leon as the likely winner of the clash. However, the campaign has just started and there can be surprises. So, to be safer, it is better to draw no bet upon Leon in the match.
On the other hand, another safe bet for the punters will be in the goals area. We can expect the visitors to play more defensively and the host will have a hard time at the other half. Hence, we can expect the total score to be under 3.5 goals in ninety minutes.
