Chivas Guadalajara and Necaxa face off next Saturday, the 8th, at the Akron stadium, in a match valid for the 14th round of Liga MX.

El Rebaño is in a slightly better situation than their Saturday rivals. In 6th place, with 22 points conquered, Guadalajara still has chances to be among the top four, which would guarantee a direct place in the Liguilla.
The challenge for Los Electricos is a little bigger, since the team is in 13th position, with the same number of points as Atlas (12th).

Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on Chivas?
Despite being three games without a win, Chivas has placed themselves in a position in the league where they can still have some peace of mind. The victories against Tigres and Santos Laguna, a few weeks ago, gave the necessary fuel for the Guadalajara players to believe that they can reach the final stages of the competition.
However, the last time they played at home, Chivas suffered a heavy defeat by América (2-4) and even had a player sent off. Akron Stadium is known for its beauty and the way fans manage to pressure visitors.
Midfielder Victor Guzmán continues to be the best player on the team, participating in Chivas’ offensive and defensive moments and contributing with goals and assists in the most important matches. If Victor has a good day, the possibility of victory for Chivas increases considerably.
Why Bet on Necaxa?
Necaxa is currently positioned in a zone of complete uncertainty. With 13 points added, the team occupies the 13th position but has seen its rivals very close for a few rounds. Pumas, penultimate, has 11 points and could also overtake Necaxa in just one round if the results were favorable.
Despite the difficulties, Necaxa has been unbeaten for three matches, among which is the clash against Santos Laguna, which ended 0-0. The team won 5 points in three games, 4 of which were achieved away from home.
Striker Edgar Méndez, the team’s top scorer with 5 goals, is the focal point in attack.
Final Betting Analysis: Chivas vs. Necaxa
We have a battle between teams that have different seasons but the same objective: get as many points as possible to reach the postseason in a good way. In the end, Chivas will almost always be the better team on paper, and this season is no different. However, both come in terrible form so, are they so different as of now?
This should be a close game, although it’ll be at the Akron Stadium so Necaxa won’t have the home factor, which has been of good help. Whatever the case, Chivas should be careful, as their home crowd is pretty aggressive, so if they start the game with the left foot, the pressure from the stands will be great.
Go for a victory for the Rebaño.
If you put $100 into Chivas’s win, you could get $65 back for a total payout of $165.
