Queretaro FC vs Tijuana Prediction

Queretaro had taken on Leon the previous match-day, who finished second in the table the last season. Despite being on the road, the former did find the back of thet net as early in the 6th minute itself, but they could not prevent the hosts from scoring three goals later into the match.

Meanwhile, Tijuana opened their season in the neatest way possible. They were at home, and defeated the toppers of the prior season Santos, with a 2-1 scorecard.

This surge in confidence will definitely play a role in Tijuana’s performance this Sunday. They will also try to draw inspiration from the fact that Queretaro are on a three-game losing run, and have a single win to show for from their past seven games combined.

Moreover, Querataro have conceded three or more goals in four of their last five fixtures, and only once have they kept a clean sheet at home against this opponent since 2006.

All these factors combine point towards one thing – at least once will Tijuana score this match-day.

However, do be respectful of the performance of Queretaro in the previous season, and their home advantage. They had finished fourth in the table, and were just six points off the top-most position.

Also, the team have shown the ability to use their home advantage well. In fact, in their previous eighteen home games, they have lost against just two teams – Necaxa, and Leon – both of whom had finished in the top-five of the league table. 

Furthermore, Tijuana have been completely unimpressive on the road in the past several match-days. They have lost eight of their last eleven road trips, and conceded two or more goals in ten of their preceding eleven matches away from home. 

Also keep note that the team have conceded three or more goals in seven of their preceding eleven road games.

Moreover, at this venue, the hosts won five of the last seven h2h encounters, and won the lastest such fixture 3-2.

Taking all these information into account, it’s concluded that, the hosts Queretaro hold the higher chances of winning this fixture this Sunday.
