Mazatlan FC vs Puebla
Mexico – Liga MX Guardianes
Date: Tuesday, 28 July 2020
Kick-off at 4:00 UK/ 5:00 CET
Venue: Estadio de Mazatlan.
Mazatlan will boot up for their maiden appearance in Liga MX while Puebla look to exploit the newcomer’s inexperience and try to take all three points back home from the game.
Even though this is Mazatlan’s first-ever match in Liga MX, they sharpened their form in the Copa Por Mexico competition.
The host was winless in all three fixtures, with a draw at home in their opening match. They will host after a 3-1 loss on the road against Guadalajara’s last time out.
Puebla was not at their best in the last season Liga MX, including their 18th spot in Apertura. However, they showed some improvement to the end of Clausura before cancellation.
They were unbeaten in their last four fixtures in the campaign, following a 0-1 win on the road against Atletico San Luis in their previous encounter in the schedule.
With their improved form in the league, we can hope the visitors to have worked on it during the recess and perform well against the newcomers in the clash.

Mazatlan FC vs Puebla Prediction
Mazatlan had some fixtures in Copa Por Mexico before entering the Liga MX this season. They did not win any of their three matches but had successfully scored their first goal in their prior match.
It has to be noted that the home team is new to the league and will need time to get adjusted as a team.
The host cannot boast any home ground advantage but they managed to share the spoils with Tigres at their own turf in Copa Por Mexico.
Puebla is not the strongest contingent in the mix as they had finished 18th in the Aperture last season.
Towards the end of last season (Clausura), they kept clean sheets in their last four unbeaten games in the schedule.
Taking into account their recent form and a slight edge in experience, the double chance favoring Puebla will be the best bet for the punters in the encounter.
Since the home team has learned to score goals by their last match, we can expect action on both sides in the game.
So, the tip for a BTTS with 1.75 odds will probably be another suitable option for the punters to yield decent returns from the game.
