Monterrey to get off to the perfect start

We kick off our predictions by backing Monterrey to win the match. They arrive in the new season with two impressive wins in the pocket after beating Chivas and hitting Rio Grande for five. Puebla meanwhile cannot find any sort of consistency with a last five that reads as two wins, two defeats and a draw. The clincher to this tip though is the history between the sides; Puebla last beat Monterrey on their own patch back in 2018.

Goals will be in short supply

If you were hoping Monterrey vs Puebla was going to be source of entertainment for the weekend then you might want to reconsider; neither team has form that suggests we're in for a glut of goals. Sure, Monterrey have recently beat Rio Grande 5-1 but their last five games have seen three end south of the 2.5 mark. For Puebla things are much clearer; four of their last five have seen two or less goals whilst their game average in that period is just 1.2 goals. The teams out a goalless draw in February too.

Monterrey to keep it clean

Our final prediction is for Puebla to fail to score. They've been weak in front of goal lately with just two goals scored in their last five matches. When you consider they blanked against Monterrey last time out it doesn't look good. On top of that, whilst Monterrey aren't impenetrable they are pretty solid. Over their last 10 games they've conceded an average of just 1.1 goals. The two factors don't make great reading for Puebla.

Monterrey to win tight match to make dream start

Monterrey have a great track record of taking points from Puebla; they'll expect to do so again here. With two wins in their last two outings the mood in the camp will be good. If they can get their noses in front they'll know there is a big chance they'll have the game win. They'll be looking to Rogelio Funes Mori to score them the goals. For Puebla, their defensive record isn't horrific but goal scoring is a problem. Can new man Fernando Aristeguieta help ease those concerns?
