Necaxa vs Pumas UNAM
Mexico Liga MX – Clausura
Date: Saturday, 10 April 2021
Kick-Off at 01.30 UK
Venue: Estadio Victoria de Aguascalientes, Aguascalientes
Necaxa will be looking to arrest the current slump in form and move level on points with bottom-half rivals Pumas UNAM on Friday evening when the two outfits meet each other at Estadio Victoria de Aguascalientes. Los Rayos won just 2 of 13 Clausura games so far in the campaign. They have the joint-worst defensive record in the division with 22 goals conceded in the process. On the bright side, the team led by Guillermo Vazquez celebrated both victories on the home patch where they have a decent record of two wins, two draws, and one defeat in five outings.
The good news for the hosts is that they will be facing one of the weakest attacking teams in the competition this weekend. Pumas UNAM notched no more than 9 goals in 13 league fixtures so far. Two of these goals came six days ago when Pumas played a 2-2 draw at home to Pachuca.
Necaxa vs Pumas UNAM Head-to-head
Necaxa can make the head to head record all square at nine wins apiece with a victory here.
The two sides shared spoils in a 1-1 draw when they locked horns in the Apertura campaign back in late-September last year.
Just one of the last four head to head matches between the two sides saw three or more goals scored.
Necaxa vs Pumas UNAM Prediction
Neither of the two outfits have been thriving in the final third so far in Clausura. Looking at their recent low-scoring head to head record as well as the latest form, we can hardly imagine a goal fest on Friday evening in Aguascalientes.
The Under 2.5 goals FT looks like a great betting option at the odds of 1.70. Just one of the last eight games Pumas played on the road ended with three or more goals scored. The team have notched just three goals in total along the way.
Since Necaxa showed a completely opposite face whenever they played on the home ground, we see them as the favourites to get the spoils here. After all, they won four of the last seven home outings on the home patch, including the 1-0 victory over the rock-bottomed Juarez in the previous home game.
