Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on Mazatlán
Mazatlán will play its first game at home after the match against León was postponed due to public order problems in the city. On their visit to Atlas, they did not do well, since they fell 2-1, which has them at the bottom of the table with Necaxa.
Counting the friendly matches, the Sinaloa team has gone 9 games without winning and has only won 1 of the last 14. Last season they were one of the teams that scored the fewest goals (17) and precisely the club tried to reinforce that aspect the only two reinforcements are forwards: Ariel Nahuelpan and Aké Leonard. Both made their debut last weekend but did not have a good performance, and the only goal was scored by Colombian Nicolás Benedetti.
The Argentine striker scored 6 goals last year with Querétaro and the Ivorian scored 2 with Nashville SC.
Why Bet on Santos
From pole to pole is Santos. In the first match, they lost 0-3 against Tigres and in the second they beat Pumas 3-0. The truth is that Eduardo Fentanes’s team played a good game against those from Monterrey, but they lacked the goal and played half an hour with a man less due to Eduardo Aguirre’s red card. Precisely when there were 10 players, Tigres scored 2 goals.
Against Pumas, the forwards were dispatched, but they have to continue to be more effective since they had 27 shots and 19 of them on target, but only scored 3 goals. Diego Medina on two occasions and Harold Preciado, from a penalty, were the protagonists. Juan Brunetta had a very good game, he led the team and he will surely start to score very soon.
Final Betting Analysis: Mazatlán vs. Santos
It will be an even game and it will be interesting to see Mazatlán playing their first home match and Santos playing their first away game. The Laguneros have a better team and need to be finer when it comes to defining since they generate a lot but score little. The Cañoneros have to improve in all their lines. We believe that Santos will be the winner.
