Cruz Azul odds: +150 – 39.0%

Draw odds: +250 – 25%

Toluca odds: +165 – 37.0%

What our Over 1.5 Goals betting tip for Cruz Azul vs Toluca lacks in attractiveness oddswise, it makes up with a high chance of success at 64.03%. Considering that there’s a measly 2.0% gap between the two teams’ win probabilities, we believe a draw at +250 is the way to go this week. That being said, we should acknowledge the fact that Cruz Azul are the bookies’ expected winners, with a 39.0% win probability.

Cruz Azul vs Toluca Lineups & Team News

Cruz Azul

Sadly, coach Ricardo Ferretti’s boys couldn’t cope with the pressure at Estadio Jalisco last week and deservedly lost 2-0 to Atlas. The home side had control of the game with 56.0% possession and 474 passes, but the visitors didn’t do that poorly either, as they definitely had their fair share of goalscoring opportunities in front of Camilo Vargas.

Predicted lineup – Jurado (GK), Rivero, Silva, Salcedo, Vazquez, Castano, Lira, Rotondi, Moises, Tabo & Lotti

Toluca

Necaxa survived the hell at Estadio Nemesio Diez, but coach Ambriz should feel like his boys should’ve trashed their rivals. Necaxa barely had 28.0% possession. This means that Toluca had 72.0%. It’s that sort of consistency that will help Ambriz’s XI on Sunday and help make our Cruz Azul vs Toluca predictions a success.

Predicted lineup – Volpi (GK), Mosquera, Orrantia, Huerta, Angulo, Meneses, Baeza, Ruiz, Araujo, Navarro & Gonzalez

Player to Watch: Tiago Volpi

We mentioned that Toluca should’ve beaten Necaxa on matchday 1, and while coach Ambriz’s boys were indeed the better of the two, Necaxa definitely could’ve poached far more than a point. With three wonderful shots, Necaxa could’ve caused a massive upset. If only it wasn’t for goalkeeper-in-chief Volpi’s catlike reflexes. He made three crucial saves that kept the ball away from his net, and we know he’ll be on top of his game to boost our Cruz Azul vs Toluca predictions’ chances.
