Necaxa vs Atletico de San Luis Prediction

Necaxa were on the road the last match-day, and were trailing 2-1 to Toluca even into the 80th minute of the game. But then the former turned the match around with two goals in the space of ten minutes to take the three points with a 2-3 scoreline.

In the meantime, San Luis recorded a win in front of their home crowd with a 2-1 scorewin over Cruz Azul.

As things stand this Sunday, Necaxa easily take the tag for favorites. They had given a stellar performance in the Apertura and qualified for the playoffs. The team finished fifth in the table, and in fact were just six points off the top-most spot. 

In the Liguilla, they made a deep run into the semis, and were eliminated by eventual champions, Monterrey.

On the other hand, San Luis failed to even make the cut, and to be frank, were placed in the bottom-most tier. They had finished 15th in a table of 19.

Moreover, Atletico were winless in 11 of their last 14 match-ups, and of these, ten were losses. On the road, they had a total of just two wins from their last six trips, and both these wins had come against similar teams from the bottom tier.

In addition, San Luis had also failed to find the back of the net in six of their last eleven overall games.

To quote another stat, San Luis had lost three of their last six away fixtures, and conceded three or more goals in all three.

Furthermore, Necaxa won four of the last five h2h clashes, and impressively, had kept clean sheets in all four. They had also recorded eight of the eleven preceding h2h wins, and won the latest meeting on the road 0-2 just one month back.

Finally, San Luis had also failed to find the back of the net in four of their last six visits to this stadium.

Taking into account all these observations, it’s adjudged that Necaxa have a great shot to post the win. 

In addition, with their upper hand, coupled with the overwhelming failures of the San Luis offense over the years, Necaxa are expected to keep a clean sheet at least for the first 45 minutes of the game.
