Liga MX actions continue this weekend when the matches corresponding to match day 5 of the Clausura 2023 Tournament are played.
For now, Pachuca and Monterrey have managed to start with their feet firmly on the accelerator, demonstrating a spectacular level of play and making it clear to the rest of the teams that their only objective is to be the champions of this tournament.
Tigres UANL has also had a great start to the tournament, especially defensively, as the team has conceded the fewest goals in the first four matches of this Clausura 2023.
América won its first match and climbed to seventh place in the table, along with Atlas and Toluca. Finally, in the lower part of the table, we have Mazatlán, Cruz Azul, and Querétaro, who have had the worst start to the Clausura 2023.

Why Bet on Leon?
Leon has played three games in the Clausura 2023 Liga MX Tournament. They won the season opener against Necaxa and then lost to Pumas UNAM in the second. However, in their third game of the season last week, they somehow managed to pick up a point after finishing with nine players against Toluca.
The Clausura 2023 has had a shaky start for Leon, with one win, one loss, and one draw in three games.
After a resilient performance against Toluca the previous matchday, Leon will be eager to extend their undefeated streak against Pachuca at home to six games. On top of that, Leon is also unbeaten in its last five home games in Liga MX.
Why Bet on Pachuca?
This season, Pachuca will go all-in for a league double. After narrowly missing out on the Clausura title last season, the team recovered well to win the Apertura 2022 title and will be looking for a hat trick in Clausura 2023.
All but one result has reflected this intention of a team that was prolific in the Apertura playoffs. However, the Apertura 2022 champions have only been away from home for one game this season and suffered a 4-1 loss in that match against Tigres UANL.
Similarly, Pachuca is coming off a 2-1 win over Necaxa the previous matchday, thanks to goals from Javier Eduardo López and Gustavo Cabral.
Final Betting Analysis: Leon vs. Pachuca
Both teams have met 25 times in Liga MX. Club León has won seven games, while CF Pachuca has won eleven. The other seven games ended in draws.
However, just over a year ago, in last season’s Clausura, León beat Pachuca 2-1 at Estadio León. Pachuca has not won at this venue in its last five visits.
At MyBookie.ag, we can see that there is a Moneyline that favors Pachuca at +146, while Leon starts at +180.
That said, we expect a very fair match where we will have two great teams fighting for the three points, but we believe the balance can be tipped in favor of the visitors. Therefore, our winner’s chip goes to Pachuca.
Look for a straight win on the Moneyline, Pachuca. For example, if you put $100 on Pachuca at +146, you’ll be looking at a $146 win with a total payout of $246.
