Puebla odds: -175 – 63.1%

Draw odds: +340 – 21.9%

Mazatlan odds: +450 – 15.0%

Given Mazatlan’s state, we believe the bookies were right on the money picking Puebla as the expected winners, and giving them a whopping 63.1% win probability at -175. For comparison, Mazatlan’s odds at +450 equate to a 15.0% shot at the three points. However, we do believe the game at Estadio Cuauhtemoc will be a thrilling one. That’s why we think there’s a 39.22% chance for over 3.5 goals.

Puebla vs Mazatlan Lineups & Team News

Puebla

Unlike Mazatlan, Puebla at least managed to win a point this season. This consolation point was achieved in the game against Toluca last week, and if coach Carbajal’s players were a tad more precise with their finishing, they could’ve caused a major upset.

Predicted lineup – Rodriguez (GK), Gustavo, Pereira, Silva, Angulo, Velasco, Navarro, De Buen, Alvarez, Cavallini & Sansores

Mazatlan

Not only did coach Ismael Rescalvo’s players lose all of their Clausura games this season, but the 41-year-old manager won’t be able to count on one of his key players for the visit against Puebla. Jose Esquivel earned himself a foolish red card in the match against Cruz Azul last week, so now, he’ll have to sit the game against Puebla out.

Predicted lineup – Gonzalez (GK), Diaz, Olivas, Almada, Barcenas, Alvarado, Camacho, Intriago, Montano, del Prete & Rubio

Player to Watch: Diego De Buen

Why do we have Diego De Buen as the player to watch in our Puebla vs Mazatlan prediction? Because not only is he a rock-solid defensive midfielder, but he’s also very adept at playing a bit higher up the pitch than a normal defensive-oriented player usually does.

Diego De Buen is on our radar, as he scored five goals since the start of the 2023/24 Liga MX campaign. This may not sound like plenty, but trust us, it is! After all, the only other Puebla player to actually outscore Diego is Martinez with 10 goals.
