Battle of the Top 12 and Epic Race to End of Season
As we close in on the end of the season, we’re gearing up for hotter games and matchups. Teams are fighting to become better. In that case, we expect to see more incredible games with end-to-end action.
The battle to make it into the top 12 positions will continue until the end of the season. We would be looking forward to the teams that make it, with Pachuca and Club Leon part of the top contenders for these spots. Undoubtedly, it is an exciting race to follow and bet online.
Pachuca Hope To Retain Top 12 Spot
Pachuca hasn’t been compelling this season. The team has lacked in the results department as they struggle to get any solid form this season. Too many draws have marred their results, and they can’t get over the finish line for a win. They won their first two games, making them a top sports betting option for many pundits.
After that first two wins, they had three draws and two losses in their remaining six games. As a result, they are struggling to hold on to their top 12 spots. But luckily, the team isn’t too pressured by those outside the top 12 spots. However, they would need to do better because they are only four points ahead of the team in the 13th spot.
After losing to Club America, we expect the team to do better. They’ve not been solid going forward, and their defensive play in that game was shambolic. We hope Guillermo Almada finds a solution soon enough before things get out of hand and it’s too late to make it into the top 12 zones.
Club Leon Trying To Avoid Drop
Club Leon is closer outside the top 12 than the top teams. They will need to do better in their upcoming games to make the playoffs. In their first eight games, they only won two games while losing three and drawing three. It wasn’t a good run as they couldn’t get to double digits like most teams.
They were battered in two games during that run. They conceded eight goals in two games. It was 5-1 against Monterrey and 3-0 against Mazatlan. With these shambolic performances, the team would need some redemption if they want to make it to the playoffs. They have to ensure that the loss doesn’t continue.
In that case, we believe Renato Paiva would work on a way to ensure that the teams do better than in the last few games. He might even introduce different tactics to help the players perform better, and we might see some not make it into the starting 11 as we think the team should have some fresh legs.
Pachuca vs Leon Head-to-Head
In the past two games, Pachuca and Club Leon have been about who is playing at home. Both teams have struggled whenever they have to play in the other’s home. Therefore, we think home advantage is a significant factor in this tie. In their last meeting, Club Leon won by a slim margin because they had to defend their lead for most of the second half.
Leon scored first before William Tesillo helped Pachuca by scoring an own goal. In the second half, Leon took the lead through Victor Davila’s strike in the 58th minute, and Oscar Murillo got red-carded in less than one minute. Therefore, Pachuca had to play the game with ten men, which did not help as they lost the game 2-1.
