Mazatlan odds: +135 – 42.1%

Draw odds: +255 – 24.0%

Necaxa odds: +192 – 33.9%

According to the following Mazatlan vs Necaxa odds, the favorites to win aren’t Necaxa, despite their decent form recently. Coach Eduardo Fentanes’ boys only seem to have a 33.9% win probability at +192, which, understandably, makes Mazatlan the expected winners, with a sturdy 42.1% win probability at +135. We believe that BTTS – No is the best bet to be made here, as the odds at -144 suggest a 59.02% likelihood.

Mazatlan vs Necaxa Lineups & Team News

Mazatlan

Mazatlan’s players will enjoy the home-field advantage for this game, but coach Ismael Rescalvo will have to find solutions to some troubling issues. First of all, chief defensive midfielder Roberto Meraz is out with a nasty injury, which might leave the center of the pitch exposed. Second of all, star center-back Lucas Merolla is also injured and will miss this game, giving our Mazatlan vs Necaxa predictions a fighting chance.

Predicted lineup – Gonzalez (GK), Rodriguez, Alvarado, Almada, Maduena, Intriago, Montano, del Prete, Barcenas & Zarate & Amarilla

Necaxa

As we previously mentioned, Necaxa are enjoying a six-game unbeaten run. It will take quite the effort from the home team to put a spoke in coach Fentanes’ wheel, so we are convinced of the success of our Mazatlan vs Necaxa predictions this week. After all, coach Eduardo Fentanes will be able to count on his best 11 men for the match at Estadio Mazatlan.

Predicted lineup – Unsain (GK), Martinez, Pena, Castro, Oliveros, Monreal, Juarez, Garnica, Gomez, Paradela & Cambindo

Player to Watch: Luis Amarilla

Why do we have Luis Amarilla as the player to watch in our Mazatlan vs Necaxa prediction you ask? Because he is a step away from evening Ake Loba at the top of Mazatlan’s goalscoring charts. Amarilla scored four goals since the start of the campaign, and will definitely be the most dangerous man on the pitch for shot-stopper Unsain. However, if Martinez can nullify Luis Amarilla, we are sure that Necaxa will emerge victorious at Estadio Mazatlan this week.
