Toluca form and stats

Toluca, who have the most conceded goals (20) in Liga MX, have played 4 Liga MX games at their own stadium so far this season, resulting in 3-0-1 (wins-draws-losses).

The home team returns to Estadio Nemesio Díez after being equal after 90 minutes with América (placed 1st) on their last time out; the Liga MX game ended 1-1. Preceding that match was the home game against Juarez that was lost 0-1.

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 Toluca have performed in matches similar to this (as small favourites). Our database has found ten matches with the results: Won four, drawn two and lost four.

The manager J. de la Torre Menchaca will start preparations for the next game as soon this is finished, as the hosts are going to Pachuca in only four days.

A decent goal production from Toluca in their home games so far, with 7 goals from 4 league matches. 5 goals have been conceded.

Santos Laguna form and stats

Santos Laguna have only collected 2 points from their away games in the Liga MX, after 0-2-4 (6 played).

It might be tough going out on the road again for Santos Laguna, facing their second straight away game. Especially as the previous game, ended with a defeat 0-2 versus Tigres UANL (placed 6th). Preceding that, the 1-2 home loss versus Pumas UNAM.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Santos Laguna playing away and similar expectations, we found seven relevant matches. Results were one Santos win, two draws and four defeats.

The attacking power of Santos when travelling is not overwhelming with 5 goals scored from 6 league matches away. For Santos, more than two goals on average per game end up in their own net.
