Pachuca vs CD Guadalajara
Mexico – Liga MX Clausura
Date: Sunday, 19 January 2020
Kick-off at 01:00 Uk/ 02:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Miguel Hidalgo (Pachuca).
Both teams had missed the cut-off for playoffs by just two points in the Apertura campaign, and ironically, Monterrey, who had a surplus of just two points over these teams, delivered the title for their fans. Suffice it to say, that both Pachuca, and Guadalajara are hell-bent on making the cut this time around.

Pachuca vs Guadalajara Prediction
Pachuca were completely outplayed by UNAM the last match-day . The former were on the road and lost the game 2-1. If not for the 90th minute penalty, the guests would have lost without even scoring a goal.
Meanwhile, Guadalajara put their home status to good use the previous game week, as they defeated Juarez with two quick-fire goals in the first half. Despite persistent efforts, the guests could not fire back a single goal.
This Sunday, in regards to result though, Pachuca come out on top. The reasons are manifold.
First and foremost come their home advantage. They are wounded right now due to missing out on the playoffs, and due to the defeat in the opener of this campaign. These alone make them a dangerous prospect to take on right now.
On top of that, consider their h2h superiority over Guadalajara. In fact, Pachuca recorded wins in the previous three h2h games in a row, and scored a total of ten goals in the process. Keep note that the latest such game was at Guadalajara’s home, and still Pachuca managed to record a 2-4 victory.
Pachuca were also unbeaten in four of their last five overall fixtures, and at this venue, they have lost just twice since 2010 against this opponnet.
As such, count on the hosts Pachuca to narrowly edge out Guadalajara to record a win.
However, do note that the visitors are on a winning streak of six games (including friendlies), and have scored twice or more in their previous three official games. They were also unbeaten in their last three league games on the road, and won the latest two.
Moreover, 14 of the previous 19 overall h2h clashes, and 8 of the former 12 at this venue had goals from both teams as well.
Considering all these information, it’s deduced that the scope for the hosts to keep a clean sheet is very low and thus, the BTTS emerges as a favored bet this Sunday.
