Cruz Azul will welcome Tijuana to Estadio Azteca for a matchday 1 fixture in Mexico Liga MX. The last meeting on 4th October 2021 ended in a Cruz Azul 1-0 win. Both sides have met twenty-two times in the most recent seasons. Cruz Azul has won 10 matches, and Tijuana triumphed in 5. Recent outings average 2.41 goals, while both teams score 55% of the time.
Cruz Azul's last game in the Mexico Liga MX against Monterrey at home ended in a 1-4 loss. La Máquina had plenty of possession, but not enough quality in the final third of the pitch. Cruz Azul scored before halftime in the 32nd minute.
Tijuana's recent game against Pachuca ended in a home 3-2 win. Los Xolos dominated the game and deserved the win. Tijuana had good chances in both halves and scored in the 45th, 57th and 83rd minute.
Since the start of the season, Los Celestes is more dominant at home. They have five wins out of 11 games on home soil. La Máquina's good defensive display is key to their success. They didn't concede in 36% of home games.
Tijuana has picked up 8 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Los Perros Aztecas wins 0.56 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Tijuana kept a clean sheet in just 11% of their visits.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Recently they enjoy playing at home, having won two consecutive matches. Los Cementeros is currently unbeaten at home in two games. Since the start of the season, they have just three home defeats.
Los Xolos is winless in one away game, having tasted defeat on their previous visit. However, they will need plenty of luck to avoid another one against Los Cementeros.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Cruz Azul wins on average 1.64 points per home game, compared to 0.56 points per away game for Tijuana. My prediction is Cruz Azul to win.
