Santos vs Cruz Azul Prediction
Santos has topped the Mexican league table with an unbeaten run at home and just 3 losses in 16 matches. Also, the hosting side has been qualified for the Liga MX Apertura play-offs in this season. Evidently, the Warriors have scored 35 goals against 22 constituting the 33 points in the table.
Their unbeaten streak at home is a challenge for the visitors. Significantly, 22 of their overall points came from the 7 wins and 1 draw in the 8 home matches so far.
Santos has won the last three home matches in a row.
In the meantime, Cruz Azul has gone down in form from their last season triumph when they finished 4th in the quarter-finals. The Machines have just 20 points in the league from 4 wins and 8 draws in 16 league appearances.
Cruz has won just one of the 8 away matches and is winless in the last five trips on the road.
Based on their current form at home, Santos is clearly the favorites. Unless getting too comfortable on the qualification causes the Warriors to let down their shield, they have more chance of winning the game.
