The Liga MX season is still fresh and sports bettors should be cautious. This meeting between Morelia and Tijuana promises to be an interesting one.
It’s busy days for these teams as both were in action only a few days ago. There’s no rest for the wicked, or in this case; no rest for Morelia and Tijuana.
Tijuana play their home games on artifical turf, while this game is played on grass. Recent stats for Tijuana when playing on grass are 7 wins, 4 draws and 24 defeats from 35 matches. They have scored 27 goals and conceded 66 times in these games.
Tijuana have a very long trip to this away game, as there's more than 2500 kilometers in distance to cover. This could prove a challenge, at least for the supporters.
Morelia form and stats
Morelia have less points than they have played home games in the Liga MX so far. Their two previous attempts here have produced 0 points. The Morelia manager P. Guede Barriero might feel some added pressure to get something from this game after two straight home defeats.
In their previous game, the manager P. Guede Barriero led his Morelia to a defeat in the Copa MX match away at Tijuana. The manager is hoping to put things right immediately here at Estadio Generalísimo José María Morelos y Pavón. In the game before, an away victory in the Liga MX match versus Atlas with a 3-1 scoreline.
The hosts are modest favourites in this match, with the bookmakers estimating the chance of a home win at about 50% +- five percent. It's interesting to look at how Morelia have performed under similar circumstances, so here are some numbers: When modest favourites like this (we found eight games) they have won five times, drawn one and lost two.
Another home game is coming up fairly shortly for the hosts, as Tijuana are coming to town in four days.
It's still early days, but we have some goal stats for the Morelia at home in the league. 1 on target and 3 scored by the opposition; from 2 matches.
Tijuana form and stats
It's not happening yet for Tijuana on their Liga MX travels, with zero points from their first 2 away games. Maybe today will be different? The pressure to perform on the road is increasing on G. Quinteros Desábato, the Tijuana manager, as the last three away games were defeats.
Tijuana won their last game, 3-1 versus Morelia played at home. A 1-1 draw was the result before that, hosting Toluca in the Liga MX.
Tijuana are the outsiders in this one, but not by much. Their performance in similar games (being the away team and moderate outsiders) is three wins, zero draws and four defeats. From a total of seven matches.
The visitors will be packing their bags again in only four days as another away game awaits: The Copa MX trip to Morelia.
As for goals scored and conceded in the league games away so far, Tijuana has managed 1 goal and let in 5 from 2 matches.
Head 2 HeadThe two sides played each other earlier this season: Tijuana - Morelia 3-2.
