Puebla vs Santos Prediction
As the Liga MX has just started it will be hard deciding the form of the teams in the campaign. Puebla has started the season off with a win but went out to lose the remaining three games in a row. Meanwhile, Santos Laguna started the run with a loss. But they stayed unbeaten in two of the next three fixtures in the campaign.
Puebla had their previous encounter at home and lost to Club America with a 0-1 score on the road. Their only win so far has come from a match away from home. So, Pueblo cannot boast upon the home ground advantage in the clash.
Besides, the host has lost both their home matches this season in the campaign. Having conceded two goals in both those games, Pueblo is yet to score a goal in front of the home crowd this season. Therefore, the punters can go with Santos to create more chances in the game.
Santos Laguna had their prior clash in the league with U.N.A.M at home. Both teams scored a goal each to share the spoils in the match. With just two losses in their four fixtures, the visitor has a better chance of taking something from the match.
In the meantime, Santis has also lost both their away games in the campaign this season. They have scored a goal in return for the five goals conceded in their two appearances. As such, the punters can rely more on the guest to show better composure in the match.
Backed on their h2h history with Puebla, Santos will be more confident to win. To be safe, it is better to draw no bet upon Laguna since they are yet to find an away win. Since the visitors have conceded more, we can expect both teams to score in the ninety minutes.
