Total Match Goals – Over 2.5 Goals

While it is true that these two teams haven’t played against one another very often, we still spot some potential betting angles in the head-to-head results. The champion Cruz Azul has scored in each match over the last 7 years between the two sides except for one instance.

Another piece of H2H statistics is the fact that in 4 out of the last 6 matches between Mazatlan and Cruz Azul, we have seen the over 2.5 goals hit. All of that, points in the direction of betting the ‘’over’’ at -118.

Cruz Azul vs Mazatlan: Match Preview 

Cruz Azul is the favorite in this match not only because of their history against Mazatlan but also because they are in almost perfect form compared to their opponents. Unfortunately, Cruz Azul will be starting the season with a suspension. Goalkeeper Jesus Corona was suspended at the beginning of July, but his expected return date is July 27th, so his appearance on Tuesday is questionable. 

Mazatlan doesn’t have any injured or suspended players, but even that won’t help them against Cruz Azul. We believe that there is a chance the match will end with several goals scored by both teams, but only time can tell if our predictions are correct.
