Pachuca will welcome Cruz Azul to Estadio Hidalgo for a matchday 0 fixture in Mexico Liga MX. The last meeting on 26th January 2021 ended in a Cruz Azul 1-0 win. Both sides have met twenty-two times in the most recent seasons. Pachuca has won 7 matches, and Cruz Azul triumphed in 10. Recent outings average 2.50 goals, while both teams score 50% of the time.
Pachuca's latest fixture against América ended in an away 4-2 loss. I expected more from El Equipo de México. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points. Pachuca scored in both halves in the 5th and 63rd minute.
Cruz Azul's recent game against Toluca ended in a home 3-1 win. La Máquina dominated the game and deserved the win. Cruz Azul had good chances in both halves and scored in the 11st, 80th and 90+3 minute.
Since the start of the season, La Cuna del Fútbol is more dominant at home. They have eight wins out of 21 games on home soil. Although Pachuca 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 24% home clean sheets.
Cruz Azul has picked up 11 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Los Celestes wins 1.77 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows.
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.
