Toluca vs Santos
Mexico – Liga MX Apertura
Date: Sunday 24th November 2019
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Nemesio Diez (Toluca).
Toluca will be looking to get a win of course but they look like missing out on a play off place and are down in 17th place with just 16 points.
Toluca come into this game in very poor form having lost their last 3 in a row and at home they lost their last game to Chivas which ended a 3 game unbeaten streak.
It means they have lost 50% of their games at home which is simply too much. A win could take the club up just one place as it is so tight in the league at the moment.
Santos are top of the league and have won their last 3 games and have 36 points a cool 5-point lead over 2nd place too. The club have won 11 of their 17 games and have clearly been the best side in the league.
Away form is not good with just 1 win in their past four but that was their last game where they beat Club America. The worry for the leaders is that they are conceding too many games away from home and have currently shipped 17.
Toluca vs Santos: Head to Head
- The last time the teams played here Toluca won 2-1.
- Santos have not won here since 2017.
- Both teams have scored in the last 4 meetings.
Toluca vs Santos: Prediction
On paper this should be an easy game for Santos, but we think they will have to work very hard for the win. Don’t be fooled in just opting for Santos to win because they have been the best team. The bookmakers make them 2.20 to win which should tell you everything that this game is very open and very close.
This is why our choice here will be to see the draw at half time this is our main bet and we will also back some goals to materialise in the second half in what should be a much closer game than many punters think.
