Match Result – Draw 

The teams are very balanced at the end of the season. Cruz Azul is currently ranked 8th and Monterrey is 9th.  One point is dividing these two and their stats are very similar. In the last 10 times they played against each other it was very rare to see one side dominating over the other. The games were very close and 3 were tied while another 5 games only had a 1 goal difference after the final whistle. Cruz Azul now has 2 consecutive losses and Monterrey has 2 consecutive ties followed by 3 losses. 

Both Teams to Score – No 

Historically speaking, this is a relatively safe bet as in the last 10 times the clubs met,6 resulted in either side not scoring a single goal. As mentioned above, the teams don’t have very good statistics when it comes to their current performances so it is likely that this will continue. Also, Monterrey has a somewhat decent defense this season despite the most recent performance, so Cruz Azul may struggle to get a goal here. 

Under 2.5 Goals 

With 2 consecutive ties, it is very likely that Monterrey will continue performing well in defense. Monterrey now has 6 consecutive games that ended in Under 2.5 goals. Their last game was a prestigious 0:0 tie with no other than the leader in the table – Club America. Meanwhile, Cruz Azul is suffering to produce enough attacking quality to beat their opponents and is struggling to gain points in their most recent games.
