Cruz Azul odds: +122 – 44.1%

Draw odds: +255 – 25.0%

Pachuca odds: +215 – 30.9%

As you can see from the odds in our Cruz Azul vs Pachuca prediction, we have Cruz Azul down as the expected winners, with a sturdy 44.1% win probability ahead of the kick-off on the 14th of January. Meanwhile, Pachuca’s odds at +215 provide coach Almada’s boys with a lackluster win probability of 30.9%. We believe that Under 2.5 Goals is the safest bet you can make, as our betting tip stands a massive 58.85% likelihood of success.

Cruz Azul vs Pachuca Lineups & Team News

Cruz Azul

Despite having the 3rd-worst defensive record in the 2022-23 Apertura, Cruz Azul remain the favorites to win against Almada’s side, according to our soccer experts. We have coach Martin Anselmi calling the shots at Estadio Azteca this season, and we believe that with his fresh ideas, our Cruz Azul vs Pachuca predictions will surely succeed.

Predicted lineup – Gudino (GK), Guerrero, Escobar, Ditta, Huescas, Castano, Lira, Rodriguez, Rivero, Antuna & Sepulveda

Pachuca

Guillermo Almada’s players had a fantastic run at the end of the season, but they still came short of advancing to the next stage of the Apertura race. We are convinced that Pachuca will have issues performing at Estadio Azteca, as they had the 2nd-worst backline in the league last season.

Predicted lineup – Moreno (GK), Macias, Barreto, Cabral, Castillo, Ortiz, Terrans, Sanchez, Di Yorio, Idrissi & Casiano

Player to Watch: Erick Sanchez

Seeing as Erick Sanchez scored the last goal for Pachuca in Liga MX, we had no other option but to include him in our Cruz Azul vs Pachuca predictions this week. Not only did he score the last goal, but he finished the Apertura campaign with a bang, netting three goals for his club. Was that hattrick a fluke? We will have to wait and see what he will show at Estadio Azteca, but if Cruz Azul’s players want to get anything out of this match, they’ll simply have to nullify Sanchez.
