Pumas vs Necaxa
Mexico Liga MX Apertura
Date: Sunday 29th July 2018
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Olimpico Universitario (Coyoacan).

Puma’s have started the season in style by going to Veracruz and winning 2-0 which has shot them straight to 3rd place. They will want to maintain this position or even better it when they play their first match at home which will be against Necaxa.

Necaxa beat Club America 2-1 on the opening day and because of goal difference they are in 5th place. Both teams then are already used of winning and this is why this game has the potential to be a very open and good one.

The bookmakers are siding with Puma’s but the market is wide open and they can be backed at 2.40. Necaxa are being priced up at 2.70, so there is great value for us to pick either one.

Pumas vs Necaxa: Head to Head

  • The last time the teams met at this stadium in April this fixture ended 1-1.
  • The teams have only met 3 times recently whilst playing at Puma’s ground and Puma remains undefeated this goes back to 2010.
  • Home or away Necaxa has no wins in the last 7 meetings.
  • There is a 75% chance to see under 2.5 goals.

Pumas vs Necaxa: Prediction

Our bet here is to see the home team get all three points and the value is very good considering they got off to a positive start and now they are at home.

Necaxa are a very good side also but they do have a poor record coming here and getting a result.

Puma will attack from the first whistle and being at home they will take more risks up front and thus the hosts will be able to start the game on the front foot causing many problems for the visitors.

Pumas vs Necaxa: Bet Tips

Pumas to beat Necaxa at 2.40.
