Tigres U.A.N.L. vs Leon
2018, July 22, 04:00 hrs (CET Time)
Liga MX

Tigres U.A.N.L.
With a streak of 27 matches without defeat at home, last defeat here was against Leon last year, the team will look to extend it beyond this match.

The team kept last season squad and reinforce it with Guido Pizarro and Julian Quiñones, more offensive weapons for an already imposing team.

Tigres U.A.N.L. won Campeon de Campeons at Stubhub Center against last season Clausura champion Santos Laguna, match where they showcase scoring power.

At home the team usually displays good football, perhaps the only aspect to improve is their defense, but if the are able to score twice that would be of no concern.

Leon
Last tournament was disastrous for them, still yet they achieve some important wins, matches where they showed they could perform, but in others they where completely outclass. Which triggered changes, and up to 11 new players arrive to the team, with key players of last seaon leaving the team.

Despite the changes, the attack is leaded by Mauro Boselli, which is capable of great performances, but also others where he is just not present despite being on the field.

Huge changes that the team expects will yield better results. But they open against a one of the most powerful and regular teams of the league. Which is not ideal, a fire baptism. The coach remains from last season, therefore expect the same gameplay which focus on defending, but tries to put offensive gameplay also.

Prediction
A match that should be clearly dominated by the home team, which posses more quality and overall time together and they know what their coach wants. Leon is incognito, as they coach remained from last season, we should expect the same gameplay, is yet to see how his new arrivals perform.
Tigres U.A.N.L. women's team has shown they way as they beat Leon women's team yesterday by 3-1 at Leon Stadium. And meanwhile  Tigres U.A.N.L. is expected to do the same, I see the value on the both teams to score market, as I expect goals from both sides, both teams posses offensive power, although Tigres have more, and a lot more variants available on the bench, in case need.

Tijuana vs Chivas Guadalajara
2018, July 22, 04:00 hrs (CET Time)
Liga MX

Tijuana
After reaching the semifinals in the last tournament, it allowed Diego Cocca to continue leading the team.

Tijuana experienced important changes ahead, Gustavo Bou left the team. His replacement is Erick ¨Cubo¨Torres, who managed to make 36 goals in 93 games in Major League Soccer. He continues in his attempt to achieve it in Liga MX, but has not had any luck in his previous teams Guadalajara, Cruz Azul and Pumas the last tournament. From Pumas Luis Fuente also arrives to strengthen the defense. As well as changes in the midfield. Of the new arrivals Miller Bolaños has two suspension games, so he will not be present.

For their home games, the team will now have a synthetic articial turf. The team closed last season with four games without losing at home, with three wins. Although it is not one of the best home teams, they managed to make it count, as they only had one defeat in Liga MX.

Chivas Guadalajara
The team will be grateful to start the tournament, given that during the break the team was a disaster, the most successful coach in recent times was fired, with the departure of Almeyda generated the arrival of Cardozo in command of the team.

Additionally due to financial pressures the team had to make changes, they could not buy Rodolfo Cota, Oswaldo Alanis left when his contract run out and Rodolfo Pizarro was sold to Monterrey. While players came to cover the departures such as Raul Gudiño, Angel Sepulveda among others, they not at the level of those who left and it is to be seen how they adapt.

I think the biggest change is in what coach Cardozo is looking for, although in his career he was an offensive player as a technician he has looked for this, but after the stage with Toluca that ended in 2016, he has gone through teams that fought to avoir relegation therefore defensive, wherehe did not last a season. It is expected that with Chivas and better elements that offensive vocation returns.

Prediction
The antecedent gives Tijuana an advantage because in the Caliente stadium it has been able to dominate Chivas in the last games. For this game there are many varibles yet to figure how they will delvier and we need to see how certain players will develop, as well as the impact that artificial grass can have. I consider that Tijuana being the local has advantage as it trains there, additionally that it keeps the technician who made it difficult to obtain points from this stadium. So with a low stake due to the multiple variables in play we go with the local.

Santos vs Lobos BUAP
2018, July 23, 01:00 hrs (CET Time)
Liga MX

Santos
The team closed last season winning the title of Liga MX against Toluca. However, the team made multiple changes in the summer, leaving out key players such as Izquierdoz and Nesto Araujo in defense, as well as in attack the sale of Tavares to Arab soccer. And while they maintain a strong midfield with Vazquez, Cortes and Oswaldo Martinez. While forward Furch remains as his best offensive element.

He opened the season in the worst possible way losing the Champion of Champions against Tigers in the Stubhub Center, in Los Angeles, without being able to score and allowing 4 goals by the other Champion. It is expected that returning home is the necessary impetus to start the league and this game seems to be a way for them.

The team seeks to avoid the curse of being the champion, for it the changes made could be the key. But everything depends on what coach Siboldi achieves in his players.

Lobos BUAP
The team closed last season with 8 consecutive defeats with which relegation was decided, however, the team managed to stay in Liga MX through a monetary payment. The team made multiple changes, from the sports direction with the arrival of Lapuente, as well as in the technical direction, with the arrival of Palencia as the team's new coach.

The team has tried to show an offensive, but that has not gone well the previous year, especially the closure of the tournament was suffered. Now it is expected that while it does not abandon to seek to scoring, it is expected to have a greater focus on defense, and for the team this challenge comes well been at away and against a strong team.

In his favor is that this season the relegation will not be an immediate pressure, because it will be suspended for two years , allowing Palencia to impose their system on the team, which will not be something immediate.

Prediction
A game that is expected to be dominated by the home team, the away team is yet to see how they develop, so the local should be able to deploy their football.

Santos will look to start the season winning and this match looks in a certain way. The strength of the home team should be the key to get a good result here. I see Santos with more force than Lobos and Santos forward Furch should score again soon.

Leon vs Monterrey
2018, July 39, 03:00 hrs (CET Time)
Liga MX

Leon
Started the season with two consecutive games losing, he lost 2-0 against Tigres UANL at Volcan, and in the MX Cup matchduring the midweek they also lost this time 4-3 against Mineros from Ascenso MX. It should be noted that in that game they went down 3-0 on the scoreboard and although they managed to score goals, they never tied the game, highlights they used an alternate line-up. 

The team depends on what Mauro Boselli gets to do in the attack. Already the last game had goal options but was unable to score. For the team to return to play at home will be an important incentive, but the action dependes on how the reinforcements that arrived fit on the team. The first game did not show much and we will see if in this they can give a better performance. 

Monterrey
After losing the Supercopa MX, the team started on the right foot the Liga MX, won 0-1 to Pachuca at Estadio Hidalgo with a goal from Aviles Hurtado. 

Diego Alonso has sought to strengthen the team defensively first, so not accepting a goal in the first game of Liga MX matches that. The team repeats at away for this game and the players are trying to adjust to the tactical system of Diego Alonso. 

The team has fought to have chances, but this has struggle to arrive, which contrasts with the large number of offensive players and the high quality of them. Fortunately for this match he will have Rogelio Funes Mori, who could play some minutes in the second half. 

Prediction
It is expected a game in which Leon goes out to look for the game, as they need, which will be good for Monterrey that will seek to dispute the control of the game, but with a defensive approach. I think there will be few scoring options, but Monterrey will have the best chance of scoring.
In the last three matches at the Camp Nou, Monterrey has won with all of them. Although focused on defense now, I expect that soon they can return to score goals, Leon seem lost and will be looking to improve at home but I see complicated to achieve something from this game.

Veracruz vs Morelia
2018, August 04, 02:00 hrs (CET Time)
Liga MX

Veracruz
Winless in this season start, Veracruz has lost two games at home and two games at away. Either Liga MX or Copa MX the team has been unable to win. Highlights the defeat in Copa MX against Dorados at home by 1-2.

The defense is just a disaster, allowing an average of two goals per match, despite having good goalkeepers as Meliton Hernandez or Pedro Gallese. And with an attack that has scored once in four matches, is hard to see the light in all that darkness. Playing at home might help, together with the irregularity of Liga MX, and that with four matches together the team should improve something.

Morelia
the team open the season losing at Toluca by 0-2, match where they deserve more but between offsides and bad referring carry an defeat. Then where able to achieve two wins, both of them at home, in Copa MX 2-0 against Alebrijes Oaxaca, and 3-1 against Santos Laguna, with Miguel Sansores scoring in both. Those two matches ratify the good sensations of the first match.

In midweek encounter Chivas Guadalajara at Akron Stadium, but despite showing response power by drawing the score at 2 goals. J. Macias scored the key goal for Chivas, and Morelia carry with the defeat. Again Morelia used an alternative squad in Copa MX.

If something has shown Morelia has been scoring power, except for the first match (where they where able to score twice but due to offside did not count), the team has been able to score at least two goals in every other match.

Prediction
Despite being at home Veracruz will focus on defending, the persistant negative results do nothing for them. Being at home the team has to play intelligent if they are to avoid his coach being fired. Which left Morelia in a good position to take advantage of the open spaces as the match goes forward.
Morelia attack should not have problems when encountering a weak defense as that of Veracruz. But due to Liga MX tendencies to irregularity, I sense the value is on the both teams to score market. Morelia scoring is seen as certain, for Veracruz the fact that in last five matches against Morelia in Luis "Pirata" Fuente Stadium they have scored at least a goal.

Both teams to Score - Yes with 6 units @ 1.87 at Bethard
Morelia - 0.25 AH with 3 units @ 2.19 at 188Bet

Atlas vs Pumas
2018, August 04, 04:00 hrs (CET Time)
Liga MX

Atlas
Winless in their three matches this season, from regular to worst their performance. Open with a scoreless draw at home against Queretaro that between lack of accuracy, the goalpost and the rival goalkepper it just was not meant to be.
Then lost at home against Ascenso MX side Atletico Zacatepec by 1-2 in Copa MX, match where they used an alternative squad.  Return to Liga MX and against America, normally a clash with dynamic gameplay and plenty of scoring chances, they where unable to perform, and America dominated the match.

Instead of improving, the defense has just go south, and needs to improve if they aspire to reach playoffs, returning home will be positive for them, expect a dynamic gameplay and if accuracy and a bit of luck is with the, then scoring goals. The team has offensive players as Clifford Aboagye o Jefferson Duque, as well as fast youth players ready to take a good chance if given the opportunity. Being at home will be positive for them, but is yet to see how much.

Pumas
Just like last season the team has started in a very strong fashion, winning their three encounter, two in Liga MX and once in Copa MX.  The team has showed offensive power, but only if pressure to do so.

Against Tampico Madero in Copa MX the team rescue a victory from a match that was almost destined for a draw. An against Necaxa the team showed reaction to comeback two times from behind to win it 5-3, where Carlos Gonzalez is showing his great dynamic barely arriving to the team. Ratifying his performance at Necaxa.

Prediction

An intense and dynamic match is expected at Jalisco Stadium. Despite the bad results of Atlas, at home the team should perform better, they just need accuracy. For Pumas the challenge is to mantain their good momentum, last season they where unable and struggle to get into playoffs.


Pumas with a great form looks like the best option, but Atlas plays well at home and with the tendency of Liga MX to be irregular, I sense the value is with the both team to score as seven out of eigth matches at Jalisco Stadium between both of them have finish 1-1 draw, only last time Atlas won by 2-1.

Monterrey vs Queretaro
2018, August 05, 04:06 hrs (CET Time)
Liga MX

Monterrey
With three consecutive wins, two in the Liga MX and one in Copa MX, the team is in the third position in liga MX. The team has deployed a gameplay based on defensive solidity, and from there build their game. Although the rivals he has faced have not been very difficult, they have complicated things for Monterrey

His defense has only allowed one goal, in the Copa MX, where they use an alternative line-up. With the starting line-up the team has maintained the zero against Pachuca and Leon, where Barovero has shown why they brought him to defend the goal of the team.

Although the attack has responded, I believe that now they face a good challenge and it remains to be seen if they can score, for now only the Necaxa in the MX Super Cup was able stop them. Queretaro has a similar approach to Necaxa in terms of prioritizing defense.

Queretaro
Arrives from losing in Copa MX against Leon, a team that had not won in his previous three games, and although they  played better than Leon, it was Leon who went ahead with 2 goals. Queretaro did not stop trying and achieved the goal of honor in the final minutes. Queretaro used an alternative lineup.

But if something has to stand out from this team is that in Liga MX is undefeated in the two games played, the draw with zeros against the Atlas, which should have lost, Volpi stopped a penalty kick. And the win for the minimum before Pachuca, fought game in midfield that gave few chances of goal.

Queretaro has shown an important defensive impetus, the coach Rafael Puente has planted his team well and although the defeat in Copa MX broke his positive dynamic, it is worth noting that he used alternate players, the team had not allowed a goal in his previous games.

With Tiago Volpi in the goal, penalty stopper and with a great performce. And together with central defenders Diego Novaretti and Miguel Samudio, the team has so far one of the best defenses and faces an important challenge to measure their capabilities. Forwards Camilo Sanvezzo and Diego Villalba have important offensive combinations and are an offensive threat that should not be disregard.

Prediction
This is a series that dominates Monterrey, it is not easy, but of the last five meetings in which Monterrey is at home, has achieved the win in four of five, only in the Copa MX was Queretaro able to avoid defeat. On two of the occasions he only lost by one goal. Queretaro will put his best effort and may be enough, but it will cost him to suffer control of Monterrey. Considering the +1 asian handicap, which puts the teams at the same level, especially considering the solid defenses that both have, I consider that Queretaro could obtain a good result of a venue that is complicated.

Tijuana vs Leon
2018, 06 August, 01:06 hrs (CET Time)
Liga MX

Tijuana
Nine matches unbeaten in Caliente Stadium, the team will be glad to return home after two winless away matches, draw against Juarez, and defeat by the minimum at Volcan  against Tigres UANL.

In the current streak at home, six wins and three draws. Scoring in all of them, the team has made their home a stronghold where it is very hard to get any points.  Need to improve in defense at home, as they relay too much on the offensive power of their attackers.

Leon
After three winless match, two in Liga MX and one in Copa MX, Leon was able to beat Queretaro in Copa MX, Mauro Boselli finally scored a goal. The team played against an Queretaro alternative team.

The win is good for the team morale, but keep in mind it was against an alternative team. Therefore there is still a lot of work to be done and they faced one of the best home teams.

The changes in the summer has not yield the expected results and if something left the team weaker in the midfield creation, Elias Hernandez is fondly missed. To make things worse for them two key suspended players, Navarro and Aquino, will force coach Gustavo Diaz to make further changes.

Prediction
Tijuana should dominate the gameplay, and have the best scoring changes, for Leon trying to avoid goals should be their main objective and try their usual counterattacking.  In eight matches in Caliente Stadium against Leon, Tijuana has six wins, one draw and one defeat. This is an encounter in which Leon struggles.
With the current state of Leon, it is hard to see how they can obtain something against Tijuana. Leon is still adapting to the new arrivals, meanwhile Tijuana at home is solid and should get the win.

America vs Queretaro
2018, August 19, 04:00 hrs (CET Time)
Liga MX

America
After the defeat in the opening game against Necaxa, America has taken flight winning the next three matches of Liga MX, against Atlas, Pachuca and Monterrey, the team has shown goal and defensive solidity. Scoring 3 goals in each game and only against Pachuca was that allowed a goal against. A great defense performance led by Agustin Marchesin. And with offensive variants that have seen goals from different players, which gives it an important dynamism.
For its part in Copa MX the team has secured classification, with two victories against Veracruz, in the Azteca and in the Port, with a goalless draw against Dorados of Ascenso MX.

While the team will not have Jeremy Menez, or Paul Aguilar , they have a large squad to cover theirabsences.  So in big plan, the America focuses on the visit to Queretaro at Corregidora, seeking to reach the leadership of Liga MX.

Queretaro
For its part, Queretaro, in Liga MX, has only played one home game, victory against Pachuca for the minimum. At away they have struggle and currently has two defeats in a row, the point rescued in the first game against Atlas was epic, because Volpio stopped a penalty to Atlas and could not be beaten. Against Leon and Monterrey fell by the minimum, especially that they were widely dominated. For its part in Copa MX the team showed the same, lost to at away to Leon, and home win to the Miners of Zacatecas of  Ascenso MX, which keeps them with options to advance.

Queretaro has an interesting squad, with players that can mark differences like Camilo Sanvezzo and Daniel Villalba, and behind Tiago Volpi stands out, excellent goalkeeper who usually saves penalties. So they will look for their home to be positive for them, but they face a great challenge ahead. For this encounter they will not count on Diego Novaretti.

Prediction

An intense match is expected with multiple scoring chances, where it will be a question of the goalkeepers performance. Despite being Queretaro at home, it is expected that America will dominate the actions. The stadium will be full, there are no more tickets available.
America starts as a favorite and with reasons, and with last season finally could win against Queretaro at Corregidora. The antecedent was not positive, but the good action gave him the victory, before that victory, the last five games had not obtained the victory. Before that streak, America had taken the victory in the previous three games here. I think that this is due to the defensive solidity that Queretaro can have, but due to recent results and the offensive dynamics shown, America should obtain a good result, especially because it is the best defense of the tournament.  Queretaro is not toothless, but America is at a great level right now.

Santos Laguna vs Cruz Azul
2018, August 27, 01:00 hrs (CET Time)
Liga MX

Santos
In the third position and with a victory would tied for first place with his opponent tonight. With a significant improvement after the initial defeat against Morelia, the team has four games without losing, with three wins in that period. In the last game against Tijuana, the team showed the reaction they can have for the last minute goal to tie the game, this after Tijuana got  the advantage near the end.

Santos had important players in attack as Julio Furch, who has 4 goals and 4 assists, as well as Jonathan "Cabecita" Rodriguez who with 4 goals shares the leadership in that sector in the team. In no game has the team remained without scoring a goal. Possibly the area that the team needs improves in defense, but while the attack continues to produce, this can be gradually improved.

The at home Santos has only had victories, highlighting the one he won against UANL Tigers, and now faces a  challenge that appears to be more difficult.

Cruz Azul
Unbeaten and with only one goal received, Cruz Azul is at the top of Liga MX, and even losing this game would remain in that position for the next round thanks to a very positive goal average.
The team has demonstrated a dynamic and solid style of play in defense. Above all, a dynamic in the attack, where Roberto Alvarado is the reference, together with Elías Hernández. It emphasizes that it is not a single player who monopolizes the goals, it is distributed in several players.

At away remains unbeaten, with a victory against Guadalajara, in a game marked by torrential rain that affected the field and the tie salvaged in the last minute against Tijuana. Cruz Azul is showing offensive power and especially good at defense, since that goal against Tijuana is the only one that has allowed, even if it was surrounded by controversy.

Prediction
All the elements are served so that this encounter will be very dinamic and attractive in the New Corona stadium, constant attacking opportunities of goal. The home team is the obligated and the duty to seek to dominate the match.
Consider that with the elements seen, it is likely that both teams score at least one goal, and that they have all the possible advantages for the safety of their defenses could be the biggest obstacle to overcome, but I trust they will do it.

Veracruz vs Leon

2018, September 29 02:00hrs

Liga MX

Veracruz
Four matches without victory, yet they have improved getting an away draw against irregular Santos Laguna, that had shown not that bad at home. 
The change of coach to Chilean Juvenal Olmos has been positive but the team is yet to win, and in front a rival that has recently give them hard opposition at Luis "Pirata" Fuentes Stadium.

Leon
With three matches losing, things look dire for the Green Bellies, yet they went to Copa MX and obtained a great away win against Necaxa to proceed to next stage and will encounter next Pumas UNAM in the midweek. Yet first they have to play this Liga MX match. 

The change of coach from Chavo Díaz to Ignacio Ambriz have provide its first positive result, even though in the first match the team fall 0-1 to weak Lobos BUAP it is yet to see if he will rotate players. With a defensive minded play style together with conterattacking the team knows in Liga MX, points are getting more important. 

Prediction
A match in the low part of Liga MX standing, both teams need to improve if they want to take part in the playoffs. Now for this encounter it has to be consider that in 4 of last 5 at Luis Pirata, León has taken the win together with both teams scoring.  Between those two trends I find the best value in the both teams to score option, as both teams have capable players to do so and I expect a very cautions playmaking, yet the trend might continue.

Atlas vs Toluca
2018, September 29, 04:00 hrs
Liga MX

Atlas
Together with no having a win in Liga MX, the team is now also out of Copa MX, competition where the team was able not only to score but also get a win, something that has been nowhere near in Liga MX. We have to consider that in their last Copa MX match the team was winning and in nexts stage, but a late comeback from Zacatepec, together with their own complications, awarding a penalty to their rivals in the last minute, was their undoing. 

The change in coach, to Guillermo Hoyos has not yield the expected results, it is yet to see if he will remain for next season, as if the negative results continue his position might be question.

Winless this season, either at home or away, and with only one goal scores, it is difficult to see their first win coming from this match, yet we can not discount them so easily.

Toluca
Despite being eliminated from Copa MX in the group stage, due to bad results at home, the team is unbeaten in last five matches, a rather improvement from two consecutive defeats. Above all the team coached by Cristante is scoring, something that Atlas does not seem capable of doing.

Toluca away performance has been between wins and defeats, it has yet to draw there, the team has a better performance at home.

Prediction
Four out of last five matches between them at Jalisco Stadium have been victories for Toluca.
Atlas has improved and continue to display offensive playmaking and great dynamic, yet they have a lot of problems scoring and now they are even out of Copa MX.
Toluca is on the top three of the league, and Atlas is at the bottom of the league, and neither winning will get them from that position, a match where the away team should perform better, yet a small stake in case a surprise happens.

Necaxa vs Santos Laguna
2018, September 30, 04:00 hrs
Liga MX

Necaxa
Eliminated from Copa MX by Leon, the current holder of Copa MX is out, in an unexpected way, as Leon claimed a 0-2 win at Victoria Stadium, which represent the first win of coach Ignacio Ambriz with Leon, and came against its former team, as last May Ambriz had been with Necaxa.

Now the team returns to Liga MX, where the team has not fared to well, still they remain unbeaten at home with three wins and two draws, it has been on away where the team is just a disaster with 5 defeats in the same number of games.

Therefore the team is eager for this match at home, to get another positive result post Copa MX elimination, the team has encounter important teams here like Cruz Azul, Tigres UANL or America, and the most they have get have been a single point.  Yet what I highlight more is the fact that from those five matches in three of them both teams have been able to score, just have to be aware that Cruz Azul left scoreless.

Necaxa defense focused gameplay does not relay on a single player for scoring, with goals coming from different sources with chilean couple Victor Davila, and Matias Fernandez as the main threats, but also have goals from forward B. Fernandez.

Santos Laguna
Santos has had a better performance overall, also unbeaten at home, the team as been able to get points at away and that has the team  in the 6th positionm, yet things have not been easier lately.

With only one home win in the last five matches, with four draws, the team has struggle to beat finer opposition as well as weaker, overall the team arrives to this match with the heavy toll of having concede a draw against Veracruz at home.

Unable to proceed from group stage in Copa MX, the team have shown one good thing, is that in the recent five Liga MX matches, the team has been able to score at least a goal, yet only three times have they score more than one. With the defense lacking strength to convert those draws into wins, as they have concede in four of those five matches.

Santos Laguna has important offensive players, mainly the couple Furch and Jonathan "Cabecita" Rodriguez, expect the offensive flow to go through them.

Prediction
Santos is capable of the best or the worst, but if something they are keen of doing is getting on the score sheet, Necaxa is a little more cautions, but being at home the team focus on getting the needed goals, and being eliminated at home from Copa MX, the team will look to revert this and take points from home.
A match with a constant coming and going, Santos Laguna has good ball control and dynamic playmaking, which I expect to be in display here.
Therefore the best option for this match is both teams to score, both have the needed offensive power to do, and their defenses have not been performing at the highest level.
