Cruz Azul

The last eight matches haven’t been so suitable for Cruz Azul. They’ve had a rollercoaster ride, losing five games in that period.

They only registered two wins and one draw. So, from the possible 24 points, the team could only gather seven points. As a result, they are struggling to enter the top 12 positions

Cruz Azul was one of the teams with the odds to get into the top positions, but they’ve had a disappointing season so far as they’ve only won four games since the start of the season.

However, 15 points are enough to keep them in the race for a top 12 finish. We would be expecting the team to keep pushing. 

A Helpful Winning for Cruz Azul

Winning the game against Mazatlan was helpful to the team as it gave them a lifeline. Although they have a 36th-minute red card to thank, the team did well to hold on to their 2-0 lead against a formidable team.

Unfortunately, the team might be without Ramiro Funes Mori and Jaiber Jimenez after they were subbed off late in the game due to injuries. 

Expectations for Cruz Azul

However, aside from those two, we expect the same team that faced Mazatlan to get into the list. They would help the team push for the three points in the game against Club Leon.

It would be an exciting match with three points up for grabs. We are excited to enjoy some incredible gaming experiences.

Club Leon

For Club Leon, the last eight games have also not been too good for the team. They’ve also lost five. The only difference is that the team won three in their last eight matches compared to Cruz Azul’s two.

In that case, they have an additional three points above Cruz Azul. Fortunately, the team can still survive a loss against Cruz Azul.

However, it would profit the team more if they could get the three points or manage a draw. We expect the team to keep pushing for a win as they face Cruz Azul in a formidable match.

Club Leon’s Interesting Tactics

The exciting part is that the team has interesting tactics to help them counter the home team.  It helped against Tigres UANL in their 1-0 win.

Although they had to rely on their own goal, the team had to work hard to escape a barrage of attacks from Tigres. They were outplayed throughout the game but held on to the lead. The match was exciting, and we saw a hungry team ready to put everything on the line. 

A Possible Tie

If they can build on that result, there is a chance that they will get a result from the tie against Cruz Azul. We expect them to maintain the same personnel and tactics for the game.

Renato Paiva is one manager that understands the game and would put his team up for a victory. 

Cruz Azul vs. Leon Pick and Prediction

From the Cruz Azul vs Leon odds, we can tell that the teams are distinct in some ways, given their recent results against each other.

Who to Bet On?

A draw is also an option we can explore. If you know how to bet soccer, you can tell that games like this will likely end in a stalemate. So, we wouldn’t put that away from the team.

However, our pick is in favor of the home team. Therefore, our Liga MX predictions for this game are Cruz Azul to win and Both Teams to Score.
