Leon odds: +155 – 38.7%

Draw odds: +245 – 25.0%

Cruz Azul odds: +172 – 36.3%

Leon may be considered by the bookmakers as the expected winners, but the odds at +155 barely suggest a 38.7% win probability. We believe Cruz Azul are far more likely to make something happen, despite their 36.3% win probability. That’s why we believe that a 0-1 to Cruz Azul is the likeliest outcome of the showdown at Estadio Leon this week. This betting tip’s odds stand at +390, giving our key Leon vs Cruz Azul prediction a 20.41% success chance.

Leon vs Cruz Azul Lineups & Team News

Leon

Club Leon failed to win against the Eagles last week, as we previously mentioned in our Leon vs Cruz Azul prediction. Coach Jorge Bava’s boys did what was necessary to produce enough attacking chances, but they just couldn’t slide it past fascinating Malagon, as he managed to keep another clean sheet.

Predicted lineup – Blanco (GK), Cervantes, Barreiro, Frias, Rodriguez, Mena, Guardado, Ambriz, Hernandez, Vinas & Lopez

Cruz Azul

Despite besting top dogs Tigres UANL 1-0 at Estadio Ciudad de los Deportes last week, coach Anselmi lost big. Chief defender Willer Ditta earned himself a 94th-minute red card, which makes him ineligible for the game against Leon, but we have no fears regarding the safety of our Leon vs Cruz Azul predictions, as Anselmi has plenty of high-caliber players to count on.

Predicted lineup – Mier (GK), Lira, Piovi, Salcedo, Huescas, Faravelli, Rodriguez, Rotondi, Antuna, Gutierrez & Sepulveda

Player to Watch: Angel Sepulveda

Seeing as coach Martin Anselmi will be able to count on Angel Sepulveda in the match at Estadio Leon, how could our Leon vs Cruz Azul predictions possibly fail? Angel is the top finisher for Cruz Azul during the 2023/24 Liga MX campaign, and we believe that his role as the starting striker for his team is cemented.

After all, Angel Sepulveda scored six goals in this year’s Liga MX race, whilst also supplying teammates with four valuable assists.
