The odds are true at the time of writing, however, they can change at all times without notice. Remember to always check your bet slip before finalizing your bet. Our recommended bookmaker for this match is BetMGM. 

Draw 

Very rarely do we actually go for a Draw prediction, however, this is how we are feeling for this match. Both teams are in dreadful form. The hosts have lost 7 and won 2 of their last 10 games, while the visiting team won 2 and drew 4 in its last 10. The start to the season has also been poor for these contenders, and it doesn't seem like anyone has any advantage, except for Necaxa being the home team. 

BTTS – No 

The most recent 5 games of this match-up feature 3 BTTS – No games. Combined with just how bad both sides are performing it's much more likely that both sides would not score as opposed to finding the net. In their individual match history, Necaxa has 6 BTTS – No games, while the number stands at 5 for Pumas. 

Under 2.5 Goals 

So far this season, both teams have scored a total of 5 goals. However, Necaxa playing at home and Pumas playing as visitors is actually a disadvantage to both sides. The hosts have scored only one of their 4 goals playing at home, all while conceding 5. It's even worse for Pumas UNAM, which has been unable to find the net while on the road so far. All of these scoring mishaps, make us back to the under 2.5 goals bet.

Can Andrés Lillini replicate its debut season success? 

Pumas UNAM reached the 2nd spot in the previous Apertura edition, being the highest scoring side in the whole of Liga MX with 29 goals in 17 games. What happened in the following campaign is a big question with the club’s ranking plummeting to the 17th spot, and scoring just 10 goals. 

Now the scoring problems don’t seem to have worn off and Pumas are left with just a single goal in the first 4 games. Andrés Lillini must be feeling the pressure as he cannot let his team finish at the bottom of the table if he wants to keep his job.
