Pachuca vs Monterrey: Preview and Prediction

Pachuca vs Monterrey
2018 Mexico Liga MX Apertura
Date: Sunday, 22nd July 2018
Kick off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Hidalgo (Pachuca)

The New Mexican season starts at the weekend and Pachuca will take on Monterrey in their first game at home.

Pachuca and Monterrey really cannot be split by the bookmakers for this match and the home side are only just slight favourites to win the game based on them being at home.

Both teams will deploy a defensive line up and this may not be the most riveting game to watch but if we carefully look at the markets there is a chance for us to make some money on this game.

Monterrey topped the league last season with 37 points from 17 games and Pachuca came 12th after the first classifications, but winning away games in Mexico can be very hard and that is why Pachuca are not seen as the underdogs for the new season.

Pachuca vs Monterrey: Prediction

We’re not expecting a classic game by any stretch of the imagination and that is why we will focus on big value price bets for minimum stakes for this game. For example the market is always wide open to see both teams to score in the first half.

Together with this we will predict the correct score market. Backing a winner with these two sides so close on betting prices and this being the first game of the season is too unpredictable.
