Monterrey to Win

The two teams are very similar in quality and there’s not much of a difference in form between them either. After all, these teams have been separated by just two points in the final standings of Mexican Clausura. However, our prediction is for Monterrey to win since they are playing at home. And while they did lose the first leg, they have played well and shown that they are no inferior to Santos Laguna.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Although Monterrey and Santos Laguna don’t often play high-scoring games, their last match went over 2.5 total goals. However, in the other four most recent matches, that only happened once more, while the rest of the games have gone under 2.5 total goals. Furthermore, these two teams have been among the worst in the Mexican Clausura in goals per game – Monterrey with an average of 2.06 goals per game, Santos Laguna with 1.82 goals per game. So, betting on under 2.5 total goals seems like a good choice.

Both Teams to Score – No

We’ve already explained why we don’t think that this game will have a lot of goals, but we also don’t believe that both teams can score in this match. After all, that only happened in two of the previous five h2h meetings between Monterrey and Santos Laguna. In addition to this, both teams have scored in just 35% of Monterrey matches, with the same percentage of Santos Laguna games has ended in both teams scoring.

Monterrey vs Santos Laguna preview: Who will get to the semi-finals?

The first leg of the quarter-finals of the Mexican Clausura ended in a 2-1 win for Santos Laguna, so the matchup is still pretty much open. With that in mind, let’s check the teams out in more detail.

Monterrey

The team from Monterrey finished two points ahead of their next rival in the Mexican Clausura to take the fourth place and avoid a play-in match. Still, that didn’t help them to avoid defeat in the first leg of the playoff quarter-finals. With that loss, Monterrey has four wins and four losses in the last eight games, so they’ve been pretty inconsistent. The team has a clean bill of health, but Sebastian Vegas will miss the second leg due to suspension.

Santos Laguna

After finishing the Mexican Clausura in fifth place, Santos Laguna had to participate in a play-in match to reach the playoffs. They won that game 5-0 against Queretaro and they already have an advantage in the quarter-finals after beating Monterrey 2-1 in the first leg. All in all, the team has three of their last eight matches, along with three losses and two draws. The team is also dealing with a few injuries since five players are out of the second leg or at least doubtful, including one of their most valued player Brian Lozano.
