Pumas vs Monterrey
Mexico – Liga MX Guard1anes
Date: Thursday, 13 August 2020
Kick-off at 3:00 UK/ 4:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Olímpico Universitario (Mexico City).

U.N.A.M’s unbeaten streak continues to the fifth game in their overall schedule as they shared the spoils at home with FC Juarez in the previous league clash. Their double win in the start of the new season has sparked the player’s morale, which is evident in the rush during the ninety minutes.

Monterrey hasn’t quite had the start they were looking for this season as they have settled in the table with just 4 points in three league appearances. They are winless in the recent two fixtures in the schedule, following a 2-2 draw at home against Santos Laguna in the previous clash.

Pumas vs Monterrey Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The visitor has recorded four of the last five overall wins.

  • Since 2017, the teams have averaged 1.5 goals at this venue.

Pumas vs Monterrey Prediction

Pumas has been on to a good start in the league and we can expect the host to carry forward their unbeaten streak so far into the next game with Monterrey. UNAM will enjoy home ground advantage, but they haven’t been able to keep a clean sheet so far showing their defense isn’t that strong.

On the other hand, Monterrey has only one win and has been winless in the last two clashes. Their only loss so far came in their away games and hence, visiting Mexico City will be a hard ride for Rayados in their league schedule.

The double chance favoring Pumas will probably serve as a suitable option regarding the winner of the encounter. Both teams have averaged close to 2 goals in the campaign, with the visitor still goalless on the road. So, the tip for under 3.5 goals will probably be the best bet for the punters.
