León and Santos face each other for the 12th round of Liga MX, in a confrontation in which one of them looks to reach its opponent. La Fiera is in seventh place in the league and has already won 5 games in 10 encounters.
Santos, in eighth place, is three points away from their rivals on this occasion (7th) and will certainly try to take this chance to overtake reach them. By beating Tijuana in the last round, La Comarca climbed some positions in the table and is approaching the group of the four best teams of the Clausura Tournament.
The match will take place on Saturday night and the expectation is that León Stadium will be full of fans to support the home team.
Saturday, March 19th – 11:05 pm ET at the Estadio León
Santos Laguna +275
Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on León?
León won the last 4 matches it played, in two different competitions: Liga MX and CONCACAF Champions League. In the international competition, La Fiera beat Tauro, from Panama, by 2-0, while the victory in Liga MX took place away from home, by 1-0, against Atlas.
Chilean Victor Dávila scored the beautiful goal that gave his club victory against Atlas, at a time when the team was under pressure from the hosts. Looking at the leaderboard, León can reach the fifth position if they win this match against Santos Laguna.
Young coach Nicolas Larcamon is performing favorably in charge of León. Altogether there have been 12 games, with 7 wins, 3 draws, and 2 losses. If the average points per game (2.0) continues like this, they can dream of qualifying for the knockout stage and, who knows, advancing to the final stages.
Why Bet on Santos?
Santos Laguna has been experiencing a moment of instability, which is clear when we observe the difficulty of maintaining a winning streak. The bad phase is perhaps explained by the heavy defeat against Toluca when the team conceded 5 goals, scored none, and was humiliated in its stadium.
The victory against Tijuana, in the last round, may have recovered part of this confidence, but the team will be tested again in this clash against a motivated León, who plays at home and has many games without losing.
Midfielder Juan Brunetta, who for many is the best player in Liga MX, is Santos’ main hope, who, even losing his games, manages to kick many balls on goal and create plenty of opportunities to score.
Final Betting Analysis: León vs. Santos
These two middle-sized teams tend to give good value to their encounters and present entertaining matches, as neither of their last 40 games ended with a 0-0. The most remarkable result was a 5-0 in favor of the Comarca Lagunera which takes us back to 2018. However, draws have been fairly common in the last couple of years.
Watching their recent performance is clear that La Fiera is on an upwards curve, while Santos is navigating turbulent waters intercalating wins and losses. In this context, the team from Guanajuato may just have the edge but expect a close result. Go for a 2-1 win for León.
If you put $100 into León’s win, you could get $94 back for a total payout of $194
