Monterrey odds: -227 – 68.8%

Draw odds: +375 – 21.2%

Puebla odds: +590 – 10.0%

As you can see, no one favors Puebla. Not even the bookies. They believe the visitors at Estadio BBVA have a lackluster win probability of 10.0% at +590, which is enough to make them the underdogs ahead of the Clausura start. Meanwhile, we have high-flying Rayados who are considered by the bookies as the expected winners. Coach Fernando Ortiz’s boys have a shockingly high win probability of 68.8%.

Monterrey vs Puebla Lineups & Team News

Monterrey

During the Apertura campaign, Rayados came close to knocking Club America off the top of the table. However, in the end, coach Fernando Ortiz’s boys couldn’t win the direct game and this really clipped the players’ wings. However, we are sure that Ortiz’s players will be eager to prove they have what it takes to be named Liga MX champions and they’ll surely prove our Monterrey vs Puebla predictions correct.

Predicted lineup – Andrada (GK), Medina, Guzman, Moreno, Gallardo, Meza, Romo, Govea, Gonzalez, Belterame & Funes

Puebla

Puebla’s last official game was also a visit. The match against Tigres UANL at Estadio Universitario ended catastrophically for Puebla, as the players got thrashed 3-0. With that in mind, we have faith that our Monterrey vs Puebla predictions will succeed, as the game will be played at Estadio Akron.

Predicted lineup – Rodriguez (GK), Angulo, Silva, Pereira, Gustavo, Velasco, Diaz, De Buen, Alvarez, Barragan & Martinez

Player to Watch: Rogelio Funes Mori

If you are wondering why Rogelio Funes Mori is featured as the player to watch in our Monterrey vs Puebla prediction it’s because he was the top finisher for Rayados in the 2023/24 Apertura. With six goals to his name, he helped the team qualify for the next stage of the tournament. Seeing as Rogelio Funes Mori is on penalty duty for coach Fernando Ortiz, we feel confident he’ll be among the starters for his manager this week.
