Necaxa to win
With seven victories, one draw, and only two losses against Atletico San Luis, it’s fair to say that Necaxa are the clear dominant force in this rivalry. Two years have passed since Atletico San Luis last got a victory over Necaxa and this is not something you can so easily forget.
Atletico San Luis will be burdened by the pressure to prove they are no pushovers on the 7th of January as they strive to get a result but we just can’t see it happening.
First half – Under 0.5 goals
We’d like to preface this Necaxa vs Atletico San Luis prediction by saying that six of the last 10 games ended with under 2.5 goals after 90 minutes of play. Seldomly, we see the two teams having a very interesting game and more often than not, the first halves are bitter disappointments.
Such was the case on the 16th of January, 2021, when Necaxa poached the three points with a 1:0 score as the players pipped Atletico San Luis with a second-half goal.

The draw probability stands at 30.0%. It’s interesting to see the bookies give superior Under 2.5 odds at -133.

Predicted lineups, team news, and last result
Sadly, for Necaxa, their last game was a complete failure. Everyone thought that we’d see an equal game on the 27th of December yet it was Toluca who were the better of the two sides on the pitch. Coach Andres Lillini’s boys did all they could but their best wasn’t enough as they were brushed aside by a superior Toluca team. It was Saucedo’s well-placed shot that was the difference-maker at Estadio Nemesio Diez.
Predicted lineup – Gonzalez (GK), Vanrankin, Oliveros, Formiliano, Segovia, Madrigal, Andrade, Esquivel, Dominguez, Garnica & Gimenez
Atletico San Luis
We weren’t too surprised to see Tigres UANL thrashing Atletico San Luis 0:3 on the 2nd of October. Tigres were by far the better of the two teams as they completely outplayed their opponents and the statistics can confirm this – Tigres UANL had 17 shots, 11 on target, 59% possession, and 389 passes while Atletico San Luis barely had nine shots, four on target, 41% possession, and 211 passes.
Predicted lineup – Ochoa, Chavez, Leon, Gonzalez, Cruz, Iniestra, Dourado, Sanabria, Waller, Hernandez & Ferreira Arantes

Player to watch: Agustin Oliveros
Necaxa’s star left-back has been the heart and soul of the defensive line for quite some time now. He’s the most expensive player on Necaxa’s roster valued at approximately €2.28m. We expect him to be on top of his game for the match on Saturday as Atletico San Luis can be a dangerous team on the wings. This is where he shines so he might just nullify coach Andre Jardine’s attacking trio.
