Cruz Azul are living a great moment and the team knows that well. Necaxa started with some problems but now they are recovering the bad results. This seems to be one of the best games of the Mexican first division this weekend and we will see why.
The local team is playing great. They ended as leaders on the last Clausura 2020, the closing leg of the Mexican first division. Now, in this opening leg of the new season, they are also on the top position after 6 rounds divided in 4 victories, 1 draw, and 1 loss. Cruz Azul want the title and they are serious candidates to claim it even when we are just starting. The team was undefeated for 8 months, but they lost a match 2 weeks ago. This was taken as a warning call – said by themselves – and right after this match, they came back with two consecutive victories with 3 goals scored on each game.
Meanwhile, Necaxa are desperate for new ways to maintain a good position. The team finished the last season on the 14th after only 10 rounds due to COVID-19. This time, they had a balance of 2-2-2 in the first 6 rounds which does not say too much about big improvements. Additionally, they have scored only 5 goals so far while allowed at least one goal on 5 of their 6 games played this season.
After these stats, we can see how Necaxa is running out of fuel in both offensive and defensive lines. On the contrary, Cruz Azul is flying like a rocket and their only loss in the last 8 months didn’t seem to be enough to stop them. For those reasons, I will place a bet for the local team with a -1 Asian handicap on the VIP-IBC platform.
