Monarcas Morelia vs Santos: Preview and Prediction

Monarcas Morelia vs Santos
Mexican Liga MX Apertura
Date: Saturday 28th July 2018
Kick off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Morelos (Morelia).

It’s the second week of the Mexican league season and Monarcas Morelia will want to get a win after losing their first game of the season away to Toluca.

The bookmakers have Santos just as the favourites to win this game but the motivation should be with the home side with this being their first match at home.

Santos beat Lobos 2-1 and a win here could well propel the team into the top 3 early on. There are goals in both sides and we should witness quite an open game with lots of chances. Each side has the ability to beat each other and Monarcas will hope that their fans can act as the twelfth man.

Monarcas Morelia vs Santos: Head to Head

  • There is a 70% chance to see both teams to score.

Monarcas Morelia vs Santos: Prediction

It’s still too early in the season to be confident of either team getting a result so we will pick out two bets.

The first is to see both teams to score and this will be our main bet. The other is to see the correct score at half time being 0-0. This offers decent value but of course remains a risky choice so this will be for minimum stakes.

Also, we expect to see the game open up more in the 2nd half.
