European top leagues are still on break, so let’s keep our summer closer to the Caribbean. The Mexican first division already started their 8th round, so let’s take a look at the match between Club Tijuana and Monterrey.
Tijuana is coming to this round after a terrible 3-0 loss against Pumas last week. With this result, they continue their bad record composed of 2 victories, 1 draw, and 4 losses. These 7 points place them in the 14th position, so they will come to this match with the illusion of getting out of this poor streak they are involved. The team bought great players for this season, but it seems that they still need to interlock with each other. Also, the rumours talk about indiscipline in the locker room. Their new coach Pablo Guede is a big promise to the team, but after this situation and results, it seems that he won’t last what everyone is expecting.
On the other hand, CF Monterrey won 2-1 last week. This result wasn’t enough for our -1 bet, but we got our money back. With these 3 points, they are now placed 5th with a balance of 3 victories, 3 draws, and only 1 loss. It seems that they are getting back to the performance they had last year and the one that gave them the title. With this victory, Monterrey extended their unbeaten streak to 5 games, so their motivation is also getting higher.
Both teams have faced before in Tijuana’s soil, and the last two matches played between them in this stadium ended with victories for the visitor team. In fact, the last time Tijuana hosted Monterrey was back in November, and the home team lost by 0-4. Although Tijuana haven’t been playing well in the previous matches, they have a better team than last year, while Monterrey haven’t been the team they were last year. For those reasons, I will take a safer position for this match. I will bet for the visitors with a -0.25 AH.
