Cruz Azul odds: -153 – 60.1%

Draw odds: +310 – 23.9%

Mazatlan odds: +390 – 16.0%

If the match at Estadio Azteca should end in a draw, no one should be surprised. After all, there’s a decent 23.9% chance for the two teams to share the spoils. Understandably, Cruz Azul are the expected winners this week, as they have a 60.1% win probability at -153, but we believe that Mazatlan won’t go without a fight. That’s why a BTTS is the most likely occurrence in this game. Our second Cruz Azul vs Mazatlan prediction has a 58.62% likelihood of success.

Cruz Azul vs Mazatlan Lineups & Team News

Cruz Azul

Despite the 0-0 tie at Estadio Olimpico Benito Juarez last week, we could say that Cruz Azul were the better of the two teams on the pitch. Juarez barely had 28.0% possession and produced only two shots on target.

Predicted lineup – Mier (GK), Candido, Piovi, Ditta, Rivero, Lira, Faravelli, Huescas, Rodriguez, Antuna & Fernandez

Mazatlan

With two losses in two Liga MX games, it would appear that the 2023/24 Clausura is going to be an average campaign for Mazatlan. The fans are undoubtedly displeased by how their club is performing, so if coach Ismael Rescalvo wants to keep his job, he has to prove our Cruz Azul vs Mazatlan predictions correct.

Predicted lineup – Gonzalez (GK), Diaz, Olivas, Alvarado, Almada, Colula, Intriago, Esquivel, Montano, Barcenas & Rubio

Player to Watch: Kevin Mier

Chief shot-stopper Kevin Mier is going to be a starter for coach Martin Anselmi it seems. He was the starting goalkeeper for Cruz Azul in the opening two matches, and we could say that he did well to concede only one goal in the last 180 minutes of soccer.

We believe Kevin deserves to be mentioned in our Cruz Azul vs Mazatlan prediction, as he will be the key obstacle in front of the visitors at Estadio Azteca this week. If the visitors want to put an end to the negative run of games, they’ll have to find a way to slide one past Mier.
