The 10th matchday of the Regular season in the Liga MX Apertura is coming our way, and the more we approach the end, the more heated things get for all the teams.
As of how things look right now, from the 4th spot to the 15th of the scoreboards, all the clubs are in the fight for spots in the Liguilla. So, things are quite interesting, to say the least.
For the moment, we are going to focus on the clash between Monterrey and Santos Laguna, who are the 9th and 12th-placed teams currently.
‘Rayados’ is coming into the match from a loss that halted their two-match win streak, so now they have to pick up their momentum, as their 4 wins, 1 draw, and now 3 losses run shows great inconsistency.
The ‘Comarca’ is on a two-lose skid right now, and they come up with 3 wins, 2 draws, and 4 losses in their current run, trying to climb up to the top before it gets too late.
Saturday, September 30 – 07:00 pm ET at the Estadio BBVA

Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on Monterrey?
Monterrey lost to Tigres at Estadio Universitario/El Volcan in their last game, however, despite losing 3-0, their performance at wasn’t all that bad.
Rayados had 54.0% possession and as many shots at target as Tigres UANL had. However, in soccer, you have to make your chances count, and that’s not something Monterrey did last week.
They need to fix things up before it gets too late if they want to make a serious push for the top four.
Why Bet on Santos Laguna?
Santos Laguna lost against Necaxa in their last match, and despite Harold Preciado’s top-notch display, they were obliterated 2-5. The most worrying thing is that they crashed in such a way against the worst team in the Liga MX.
Necaxa were just clinical when it came to sliding it past Lajud, and we are sure that such sort of defensive inconsistency will play into part in this next clash.
The ‘Comarca’ will need to work on their defense as fast as possible, as Monterrey is going to keep their usual approach and either go all in or die on the line, and a bad defense may be just what they are looking to go through.
Final Betting Analysis: Monterrey vs. Santos Laguna
It will come down to the defensive issues on the side of Santos Laguna that may prove to be too much trouble for them to fix immediately.
Monterrey has been having its issues in the season but is likely to find a way to pierce through the visitors and score a few goals to get a comfortable lead and win the 3 points.
We expect this to be the case, and see how Rayados climbs back to the winning column while also getting closer to the top of the scoreboard at the same time.
If you put $100 into Monterrey’s win, you could get $74 for a total payout of $174.
