Santos Laguna and Pachuca have both delivered a "par" performance so far, to use a golfing expression. Both hold mid-table positions in the Liga MX.
We should expect both teams to be fresh and ready for this match, as there is some time since both teams last played. Let's have a look at how the teams are doing!
Everyone involved with the away team has to get their travel gear ready for this match as there's a whopping 900 kilometers to cover before arriving at the match.
Santos Laguna form and stats
When playing at home in the Liga MX, Santos Laguna have managed 3 wins, 1 draw and suffered 1 defeat from 5 games.
Nothing to worry about in defence for Santos Laguna, as their goalkeeper Carlos Acevedo Lopez has completely shut out the opponents for 180 minutes in the Liga MX.
The Santos supporters enjoyed the previous match, watching their team host Tijuana in Liga MX and win 2-0. Before that match, a win away at Puebla.
The bookmakers consider this a fairly even contest. One could say only the home advantage separates the teams. It could be relevant to look at how Santos Laguna have performed in matches similar to this (as small favourites). Our database has found seven matches with the results: Won three, drawn three and lost one.
Santos has scored 7 league goals at home this season, in 5 matches. Santos are not conceding a lot of goals here at Estadio Nuevo Corona in the league, averaging less than one per game. The total is 3 from 5 matches.
Pachuca form and stats
The story so far for the visiting team, who have the fewest conceded goals (3) away in Liga MX, on their Liga MX travels is 2 wins, 3 draws and 1 defeat.
Pachuca has to pack their bags again for the second away game in a row. Last time they traveled to Juarez for a Liga MX game that ended a draw (1-1). Ahead of that game was the 0-0 draw at home against Toluca.
So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Pachuca playing away and similar expectations, we found seven relevant matches. Results were two Pachuca wins, four draws and one defeat.
Many goals are not expected from the visiting Pachuca as they have only managed to score 4 times from 6 away games in the league. Pachuca are tight as a drum on their travels, having allowed the opposition only 3 goals away.
Head 2 HeadAs for the last ten games between these two teams, there's one Santos victory, five draws and four Pachuca wins. Over/under statistics; four of these games ended with three goals or more, six matches with two goals or less.
