Toluca hoiping for home win

After a very poor showing over the Aperutra phase, Toluca are hoping to push for a play-off spot in the Clausura phase. On paper, they certainly have enough quality to push for a top 8 finish but they’ll need to find greater consistency if they are to do so; given they’ve already won, drawn and lost one of their opening three fixtures.

Toluca aren’t finding it hard to score goals and have impressive attacking firepower but keeping them out is proving problematic and whilst that’s made them an extremely entertaining side to watch, it’s limiting their capacity to secure results. Indeed, Both teams have now scored in Toluca’s last 4 games, as well as 5 of their last 6 at home and the side simply have to try and tighten things up defensively.

Cruz Azul looking for positive away result

Meanwhile, Cruz Azul were another side that disappointed over the Apertura phase, finishing 4 points short of the top 8. That has them itching for improvement in the Clausura and with the players they have in their ranks, they have every chance of reaching the play-offs if they perform to their maximum.

Nonetheless, the visitors lost their opening two games of this phase with some unconvincing showings but a 3-0 mauling of a strong Santos Laguna side last weekend should have injected some confidence back into the group. Just like Toluca, it’s defensively Cruz Azul need to find improvement in and with both teams having scored in 8 of their last 10 matches, they are also a side that brings excitement at both ends when they take to the pitch.

Plenty of action is expected

Ultimately, we’re expecting this to be a very open and exciting game. Both sides have real attacking firepower but both are weak defensively. It’s not in either team’s nature to sit back and with both hungry for the 3 points on offer, this should be a highly entertaining fixture.

All things considered, backing the Both Teams to Score line looks the best way to play as far as the betting is concerned and is something we’re more than happy to do with maximum confidence. The last 3 meetings between the two have seen goals at either end and given the rate both outfits are scoring and conceding with, we fancy things to end all square in an enthralling 2-2 draw.
