Monterrey vs Necaxa
Mexico – Liga MX Guard1anes
Date: Sunday, 16 August 2020
Kick-off at 03:06 UK/ 04:06 CET
Venue: Estadio BBVA Bancomer.
The Striped-Ones are the reigning champions of the competition, and have all the intention in the world to defend their title. They are unbeaten so far this campaign, except for their match-up against Leon, who had finished second in the table the last season.
They have also performed comparatively far better at home than in overall fixtures. Meanwhile, their counterparts have been struggling so far to show any kind of spark this campaign, and have a 100% winless record in the contest barring a single game against Mazatlan – the worst team in the contest.
Moreover, the title-holders had also defeated this same opponent en-route to their championship triumph, and generally have been the better team in h2h clashes over the years as well.
As such, expect a win from Monterrey this Sunday.
Monterrey vs Necaxa: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Striped-Ones had recorded nine of the previous thirteen overall wins.
- They had scored two or more goals in two of the preceding three match-ups.
- These past two decades, only twice have the guests won at this stadium.
- The latest encounter at this venue had ended in a 2-1 win for the hosts.
Monterrey vs Necaxa: Prediction
Antonio Mohamed’s men have the confidence of being the defending champions, and they have had a dominating spell of almost a decade in h2h clashes against this opponent – especially so at this stadium.
Moreover, the Electricians were winless in nine of their last eleven overall games, and had lost an embarrassing seven of these matches. And on the road they lost four of their last five games, and have had a total of just two wins this whole year in such match-ups.
It also deserves to be mentioned that the hosts of the day have lost a total of just three times here in the past twelve months.
By the looks of things, expect defending champions Monterrey to record a win this Sunday at the Estadio BBVA Bancomer.
