Winless Teams Collide
One of the Liga Mx games we’re following is between two of the three teams yet to register a win. This game is their chance to push for the first three points and kick-start their season before we get halfway through it.
So, we expect a fiery game with no open ends and compactness to reduce the chances of the opponent’s attacks. We’re looking forward to what the game holds for us, but before then, read the game preview, picks, scores and odds.
Mazatlan: Continued Search for Three Points
Mazatlan looked like they would be one of the top teams this season. However, after a loss against Puebla, the team hasn’t been the same. They lost the second game before going on a three-game draw streak — all 1-1 results against Pachuca, Atletico de San Luis and Pumas UNAM.
They are coming off a loss in their last game, their third defeat in six games. As a result, they’ve only gathered three points from the possible 18, which is abysmal for any team that wants to make it to the playoffs.
Gabriel Esteban Caballero Shicker needs to get his team back on track as they are yet to keep a clean sheet and have only scored two goals in one game. So, they must improve their play before the next game, especially in the goals department.
Guadalajara Also Seeking W
Compared to Mazatlan, CD Guadalajara has a better season, but the team is struggling to push into the top 12 zone.
However, they have only lost one since the start of the season. The highest they’ve conceded and scored in a single match is two goals.
Most of their games ended in goalless draws. Defensively, we can see that the team is doing well. The only problem comes when they have to score goals, which is a problem Ricardo Cadena has to look at before the next game.
Guadalajara would have to break the jinx of draws before it is too late for them to make it into the playoffs. This game is perfect for them to get into a good run this season. Cadena must find a way to get his attackers to start scoring plenty.
Mazatlan vs. Guadalajara Head-to-Head
Since 2021, both teams have met three times, and Guadalajara has been unbeaten in the three matches. The Last time Mazatlan won this tie was in 2019. The last time they played in the Apertura, Guadalajara took home the three points from a slim win.
It was a closely contested game with nothing to separate both teams except for a penalty canceled in the 31st minute. For most of the game it was level and both teams were trying to remain compact, but a late strike from Angel Zaldivar sealed the victory for Guadalajara.
