León will welcome Cruz Azul to Estadio León for a matchday 4 fixture in Mexico Liga MX. The last meeting on 4th November 2021 ended in a León 1-0 win. Both sides have met twenty-seven times in the most recent seasons. León has won 7 matches, and Cruz Azul triumphed in 10. Recent outings average 2.41 goals, while both teams score 48% of the time.
León’s last game in the Mexico Liga MX against Pachuca at home ended in a 2-1 win. Los Panzas Verdes had more possession of the ball and took advantage of it. León played much better in the first half and scored in the 2nd and 58th minute.
Cruz Azul’s previous game in the competition versus Monterrey ended in an away 2-2 draw. The whole team didn’t turn up, so in the end the draw was a good result. Cruz Azul was much better in the second half and scored in the 31st and 54th minute.
Since the start of the season, Los Esmeraldas is more dominant at home. They have seven wins out of 13 games on home soil. Although León is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 31% home clean sheets.
Cruz Azul has picked up 7 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Los Celestes wins 1.20 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Cruz Azul kept a clean sheet in just 30% of their visits.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Draw or Cruz Azul.
Still, I expect a close game and don’t think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.43 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 47% of León’s home and Cruz Azul’s away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
