Celaya vs Mineros Zacatecas

January 13, 2019 02:00 hrs 

Ascenso MX

Great start of the season, beating Dorados with the minimum, achieving his first victory and equaling the number of points at away they had in the entire last tournament in his first game, and also the total number of victories they had in total. As for the sensations, they are good for the team, especially stopping the sub-champion, who had barely time to prepare for this season, together with coach Maradona being away. 

Quickly another interesting challenge comes to them. While the start may have good feelings, it should be noted that was at home where they lost more matches than at away. The obligation to dominate the game does not feel so good for them, it might be different this time around. 

Mineros Zacatecas
Two games without losing this season, he opened at home with a goalless draw against Atletico San Luis, then midweek, they had a superior touch-up against Lobos BUAP of Liga MX, with a win by the minimum margin, a victory that makes them the leader of the group. 

If something has highlight has been its defensive solidity, two games in which it has not received goal, especially stopping Lobos BUAP, that although the goal of Lobos BUAP is to avoid relegation more than Copa MX, still has to be taken into account the away win. 

Now repeat at away and keep in mind that last season was one of the teams that performed best, as well as at home, the team closed the tournament with 10 wins in 14 games, only two draws and two defeats. Although in playoffs Dorados throw them out, we can highlight that there was only one goal in both games against Dorados, so the defensive solidity is there. 


A classical tight match of Ascenso MX, both teams will be more focused on not allowing goals more than creating them. Mineros Zacatecas had time to plan this season therefore they should avoid Dorados fate. 
A low scoring affair where the away side has the edge despite having play in midweek, Celaya will find a difficult challenge at home, still with the positive outcome of the first match their morale boost will be their biggest asset. Therefore with a medium stake the Asian Handicap for the away team.

Potros UAEM vs Alebrijes Oaxaca

13 January 2019, 02:00 hrs

Ascenso MX

Potros UAEM
Fairly irregular last season, the team did not enter playoffs by two points, which would have put him in the place of Leones Negros, however it was not so, irregular both at home an away, the team had fewer wins than draws or defeats. 

Opened this season with a victory at away against Cafetaleros Tapachula with a goal, at midweek the team fought level on with Monarcas Morelia in the Copa MX, despite the defeat, so in two games they have shown interesting things, which are expected to be reflected in this game. And they have an interesting test against Alebrijes Oaxaca who have become a constant guest at playoffs. 

Alebrijes Oaxaca
The season has started excellently, with two victories, both in Ascenso MX and in Copa MX. First at home they imposed against last season leader, won 2-0 against FC Juarez, forward Luciano Nequecaur is still one of the references of the attack. Especially continuing with the strength in their field. 

But it highlights the next game, where Copa MX won at awy to Leon from Liga MX by a single goals. Noting that in these two games they have not received a goal. Demonstrating that the team is determined to improve its visitor performance. 

Last season they made their field a fort and could be expected with the reversion of the calendar that now have good away performance, at the moment with the result of the match against Leon it seems that could be like that. 



A close match, despite last season one of them played playoffs and the other don't they seem to be more level this time around, yet Alebrijes has a slight edge and Potros UAEM was very irregular, and that is hard to change around. 

The probable improvement of Potros UAEM is something to have into consideration, yet Alebrijes Oaxaca start of season could not be better. An Ascenso MX that leans towards few goals, but it could rather quickly get more goals, as both have shown they can compete against Liga MX sides, still Alebrijes Oaxaca was able to get the victory, meanwhile Potros UAEM defensive was the cause of their defeat, therefore Alebrijes Oaxaca should take something from this match.
